PSFK has been tracking inspirational events and conferences being held around the world, featuring exceptional gatherings in the Events section of our home page. Below are a handful of upcoming events that we are looking forward to as platforms for speakers and attendees to spread good ideas.
Digital Arts Lecture: Jonathan Harris- Apr 14th, Brooklyn: Brooklyn-based artist Jonathan Harris’ work celebrates the world’s diversity even as it illustrates the universal concerns of its occupants. His computer programs scour the Internet for unfiltered content, which his beautiful interfaces then organize to create coherence from the chaos. His projects are both intensely personal (the “We Feel Fine” project, made with Sep Kanvar, which scans the world’s blogs to collect snapshots of the writers’ feelings) and entirely global (the new “Universe,” which turns current events into constellations of words). But their effect is the same — to show off a world that resonates with shared emotions, concerns, problems, triumphs and troubles. He is speaking at Pratt Institute as part of their DDA Guest Lecture Series.
