ATNE Salon: The Inseparability of Art and Technology

Join Art Technology New England for the second in our series of informal discussions on art/technology topics. At each event, we’ll start the discussion with a presentation by an expert in the field who’ll provide context and raise provocative questions. Next, with the help of a moderator, we’ll turn the debate over to you. Share your ideas, discover new ones and participate in analytical discourse and artistic cross-pollination.
