Each week, host Gabriel Barcia-Colombo speaks with a new artist, curator, technologist, AI, collector, innovator, about the ever-changing relationship between art and tech.
In this episode, Dorothy Santos speaks with digital artist, Lark VCR , on queering the digital art spaces to address hypothetical realities that are very much within the realm of possibility within are increasingly tech-guided lives.
