Jeremy Bailey: "Lean Artist"
live streamed artist talk and Q&A as part of openAR
About the event
In the 1960s the Fluxus art movement unleashed a revolution in art making by rejecting the commodified physical art of the bourgeoisie in favour of art that expresses itself as experience. Today, experience design is often synonymous with the ominous threat of surveillance capitalism brought about by thousands of apps begging for our attention. In many ways startup culture has become the predominant global culture – where our parents had "Free Love", we have "Free Shipping." Emerging technologies like Augmented Reality promise to push these user experience incursions even further, onto every surface of our bodies and world around us – how will we prepare for this future? Don't fret, Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey is here to help us explore how we got here, where we're going next and the strategies past, present and future might exist to help us navigate this new reality in style.
Jeremy Bailey's artist talk is part of panke.gallery's project openAR.
