In The Portal
1. NFT Gallery / The Portal / AR Sculpture Garden (4-6pm EST): Enter a new world through our portal, explore the AR Sculpture Garden and step right up to the META-MENAGERIE! This NFT installation will dazzle your senses and take you on a journey into the emerging world of digital crypto art.
2. Conscious Community (6-8:30pm EST): The Conscious Community Program will explore the question of how we can start dialogues across different mediums, cultures, backgrounds and communities, and how new technology can help us connect and perhaps even heal. The experimental filmmaker and performance artist Anto Astudillo and the experimental musician Mx_mango will explore the values of a conscious community in their live performances. Both artists will be body captured into VR spaces that Sky Rolnick coded and will perform in his Infinity Studio VR. Afterwards there will be a Q&A with the artists to start and deepen dialogues.
3. Live in the Cube (8:30-9pm EST): The audience is invited to participate in an interactive sound sculpture, to enjoy audio reactive visuals & relaxing binaural beats and electronic sounds, and explore together how/if technology can heal us.
4. NKB x Ars Electronica (9-11pm EST): By investigating the relationship between video and sound brought together by technology that until recently could only be dreamed of, our selection of talented NYC-area audio/visual artists will peel back through the litany of lost futures and promised utopias that haunt our imaginations until the ideological perversity buried within these promises is extracted and understood.
