ZER01: The Art and Technology Network is pleased to announce ART/TECH: In Conversation, an ongoing series of discussions featuring artists and technologists exploring topics relevant to contemporary society.

ART/TECH: In Conversation begins on Thursday, March 24th with The Future of Play. Taking place at The Tech Museum in San Jose, The Future of Play engages Joe Wilcox toy inventor/model maker, IDEO, and Scott Sona Snibbe, new media artist, filmmaker and researcher, in a lively conversation, moderated by Rick Rinehart of BAM/PFA, about the expansive role of play in the world’s future.

Increasingly recognized as an essential tool for developing innovation, both IDEO and Snibbe Interactive are known for utilizing concepts of play in their designs and creations. From using play as a tool for engaging childhood learning environments, to boosts in creativity leading to the development of new consumer projects and new ways of working, The Future of Play is likely to affect us all. Join the conversation and explore the role of play as it moves beyond the playground and into the office, the art world, and the world of economics.

ART/TECH: In Conversation, a quarterly series, is produced in partnership with various regional organizations, part of ZER01’s national and international cultural network.
