Discrete Figures, Rhizomatiks Research x ELEVENPLAY x Kyle McDonald

“Live Ideas” — New York Live Arts’ annual humanities festival of arts and ideas — will interrogate a future in which artificial intelligence promises to revolutionize human existence. From May 8th through May 12th, “AI: Are You Brave Enough for The Brave New World?” will include discourse, performances, an exhibition, classes for adults and kids, and a HACK-ART-THON, bringing artificial intelligence to the general public from the perspective of its societal, cultural and artistic implications. Headlining the mainstage of this year’s festival will be the New York City premiere of “discrete figures,” a collaboration between Japanese companies Rhizomatiks Research and ELEVENPLAY, and American media artist Kyle McDonald.
