Virtual Futures 2.0

By | Events

PhD Student and research member, Tyler Fox, presented his paper Material Possthumanism: (Re)Configurations of Practice at Virtual Futures 2.0, a revival of the cult conference in the UK. Featuring members from the original Virtual Futures, such as performance artist Stelarc, science fiction author Pat Cadigan, and computer scientist Kevin Warwick, the conference focused on how digital technologies impact our lives and shape our futures, as well as what has turned out differently from the expectations from the original Virtual Futures conferences in the mid-90s. Tylers paper focused on the intersections of bioart and science and was part of the Future Concerns of Bio-Technology panel.
