How Do We Maintain Our Autonomy In The Internet Age?
Rhizome's 7 on 7 pairs seven leading artists with seven game-changing technologists, and challenges them to develop something utterly new that hacks the current online social landscape.
Rhizome's 7 on 7, an event that explores the intersection of art and technology, pairs seven leading artists with seven game-changing technologists in teams of two, challenging teams to develop something new—be it an application, social media, artwork, product, or whatever they imagine—over the course of a single day. Now in its third year, the event is organized by the new media-art affiliate of the New Museum, Rhizome, and is sponsored by HTC. During presentations at this year's event (held on April 14th), a common theme from the teams emerged–the exploration of human autonomy in a digitally connected world.
