On November 12 and 13 the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center will present Ctrl+Alt: A Culture Lab on Imagined Futures – taking place in the former site of the Pearl River Mart in SOHO NYC as an arena to explore the future of our nation, neighborhood and selves. The weekend will feature 40+ artists and scholars doing their thing, from adrienne maree brown to Yumi Sakugawa, including Lao American artist Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay. This is a free event. The event will be held at 477 Broadway, from 11AM to 9PM.
I'll be one of the presenters there, doing a workshop entitled "Short Futures," as well as a piece of fan fiction, Do Archaeologists Dream of Electric Sheep?
Over on Facebook, they've posted a video that elaborates more upon the goals and aims of the workshop. Be sure to join us if you can!
