Rhizome’s Seven on Seven bringing art and technology closer together
New York City - APR 18, 2013

Since 2010 Rhizome has been presenting Seven on Seven, an annual event that pairs up leading figures of art and technology with the goal of promoting innovation and joint creativity. This event is a confirmation of the possibilities that collaboration between art and science can present, creating a common territory for developing new ideas. Thanks to the combination of the knowledge of each expert, the resulting ideas, concepts and prototypes can be of great importance for contemporary culture and science.
