Art is a brain virus, and technology is helping art to infect brains faster and more effectively than ever before. Or is it the other way around? One thing is certain, as always by design, the pace of change for art combined with technology is far ahead of our society and laws.

This aimWest Art and Technology panel will bring together Phil Renato, Professor of KCAD, a brilliant mind in 3-D printing; ArtPrize executives Jonathan Hunsberger and Todd Herring, prototypers of super-colliders that use technology to mash art worlds together; and Jon Carfagno, Education Director of the Grand Rapids Art Museum, incubator of incurable art + technology brain infections.

This panel promises to be one of the most fascinating conversations on the arts and technology held in Grand Rapids this year, addressing issues that you didn’t even know existed.
