This Is How It Ends: Conversations about Emerging Technologies and Performance

How can the arts inform new directions for emerging technologies? From the curatorial mind of producer and director Meiyin Wang comes a collaborative exploration of the intersection of technology and the arts: This Is How It Ends. Through a series of performances and panel discussions, Wang introduces us to artists and technologists who are conceiving of ways the arts can disrupt, inform, and influence emerging technologies. Hear from musicians, theatrical directors, and filmmakers, as well as digital artists, game designers, and experts from all walks of art and tech, all united to explore the ways technology can be impacted by the concerts of art: language, space, corporeality, materiality, time, emotion, and inclusivity.
