SUBTLE TECHNOLOGIES
FESTIVAL 2018


Subtle Technologies is pleased to announce our 2018 Festival program, We ++. We++ makes inquiries into cultural heritage, ancestry, hybrid identities and virtual environments with four interrelated events – two keynote presentations, an architectural scale new media installation and a digitally oriented workshop series. The program playfully examines virtual place-making in game interfaces and genetic databases as a means for decolonization and reconciliation through disparate modes of (re)presentation.
