INTERchange, an ongoing series focusing on artists working at the intersection of physical and virtual spaces. Through artist talks, discussions, and media we explore how new technologies inform and extend creative practice. We live in a world increasingly stratified by virtual layers of social, political, and economic culture. INTERchange hopes to understand how virtual and physical spaces are synthesized into new cultural forms.
