SxSW


Liam Young, 13 03 18


Liam Young will be In Austin Texas this week to close the SxSW Cities Summit with a performance of ‘City Everywhere: A Storytelling Tour Through the Landscapes of Technology’.  The perfromance starts at 5pm, March 13th. Travel with Liam and an all-seeing smart city operating system as they take a tour in a driverless taxi on a storytelling tour through the flickering screen and beyond the fog of the cloud, to explore City Everywhere, a quasi-fictional city of the near future, extrapolated from the fears and wonders of an increasingly complex present. Seen through the eyes of the machines we are now designing our cities for you will visit the autonomous infrastructures, industrial territories and sacrificial landscapes that span from the robot ports on the Siberian coastline to the massive mining excavations carved from the middle of Australia where our gadgets begin their lives. Our luminous technologies cast shadows that stretch across the planet.

Liam will also be speaking on March 14th for the panel Research, Exploration, Art: The Holy Trinity of VR Creation with media artists Marshmallow Laser Feast, Jennifer Stein and Wired writer Peter Rubin.
