Here’s the shape of the schedule for 2012. We start with pre-festival workshops, and kick it off that night. That’s right, keynotes at night and breakouts by day. And you’re on your own for meals.
Aaron is an artist specializing in data and digital technologies. His work takes real world and community-generated data and uses it to reflect on cultural trends and the changing relationship between humans and technology.

In 2010 Aaron was the Abramowitz Artist in Residence at MIT and currently leads the Data Arts Team in Google's Creative Lab.
Golan is an artist and engineer exploring new modes of reactive expression. Through performances, digital artifacts, and virtual environments, Golan applies creative twists to digital technologies that highlight our relationship with machines, make visible our ways of interacting with each other, and explore the intersection of non-verbal communication and interactivity.

His work explores abstract forms as the outcome of generative systems, with output ranging from realtime software art to physical structures created using digital fabrication tools. He is also the founder of Generator.x, a curatorial platform for computational aesthetics.
