Last Saturday, #ArtsTech founder and Director of the New Museum’s Incubator for Art, Technology and Design, Julia Kaganskiy, spearheaded an exploratory discussion about the unique terrain of LA’s Art + Technology communities and culture. A diverse group of LA-based artists, makers, technophiles, museums, creative professionals turned out to mix, mingle and hear from a distinguished panel of experts that included: Kaganskiy, Bret Nicely (Associate Director of Digital Media at MOCA), Amy Heibel (VP Technology, Web and Digital Media at LACMA), Mileece (Sonic and environmental installation artist – and Maker Cit LA Artist in Residence), Mark Allen (Founder of Machine Project), Sharon Ann Lee (Culture Analyst, Co-Creator Maker City LA) and George Bloom (Executive Producer at CBS Digital/Visual Effects).
Here’s a smattering of twitter highlights and take-aways from the conversation:
