Creator / Technologist Relationship: 1:00 – 1:45 p.m.VIDEO
Each of the panelists will have a few minutes (about 8) to discuss their work. There will then be a moderated discussion about the creator/technologist relationship. This is to be an informal conversation and Q&A with the audience about your work, the process of making your work, and how you’ve blended art and tech. We are hoping for an honest conversation about the successes and struggles that artists have with realizing their vision when we are (sometimes) dependent on areas, people, technologies, etc. that are beyond our knowledge base. 

Research-Creation Process: 1:45 – 2:30 p.m.VIDEO
Each of the panelists will have a few minutes (about 8) to discuss their work. Discussion for this panel will focus on the creation of knowledge in and through creative material and performative practice. Here we will explore what it means to use the process and artifacts created with the use of emerging technologies as research in a broader context. 

Coffee Break: 2:30 – 2:45 p.m. 

Hands-On Demonstrations: 2:45 – 4:00 p.m.
