5. Conscious Community (6-9pm 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 Flex Dance Program will host an online and in-person workshop for kids and youth as well as perform. All the artists will be body captured into VR spaces that Sky Rolnick coded and will perform in his Infinity Studio VR. Ulisespal and She’s Excited! Invite the audience to participate in their audio-reactive sound and visual sculpture as well as perform live. Afterwards there will be a Q&A with the artists to start and deepen dialogues.
6. 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.
