BY RONNIE CLARKE
@ VOL 11 ON MAY 06, 2016

"How do you log off in the real life? How do I separate from my digital self? I think you have to be unconscious."

In Art and Virtual Reality: Staging the Real with Accessible Technology from PechaKucha Night Markham Vol. 11, Ronnie Clarke is an artist focusing in media and performance, whose current work addresses the body, the self and social relationships in physical and digital spaces.  Her talk brings art and accessible technology together to question what it means to be present and to really interact with one another.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, September 6th, 2016.
