Ars Electronica Center
Manuela Macedonia and the Academy of Media Arts Cologne to Appear at the Ars Electronica Center
(Linz, June 6, 2018) The Ars Electronica Center is hosting two very interesting events on the evening of Thursday, June 28, 2018. At 6:30, Dr. Manuela Macedonia will address the subject of friendship and the brain, and discuss how the brains of people who are friends with each other process information similarly. As a result, friends often share opinions or have similar interests. At 7 PM, international artists from the Academy of Media Arts Cologne will be making a guest appearance in Deep Space 8K, where they’ll present works of art across the creative spectrum—classic videos and animated shorts, sound performances, and works entailing visitor participation.
