Zachary McCune is a digital artist and scholar focusing on issues of culture and cultural production. From ice hockey to Myst, and from documentary production to interactive media design, Zack lives at the intersections between media culture, production, and society. Zack caught us at the Transmediale festival and produced this short video interview with me for his project with Colleen Brogan, A New Days Work – a year-long project to promote works by today’s new media and electronic artists. Every business day of 2011, they share a piece of contemporary digital art, with an image or video, and a short description. We really like Zack’s project and hope you’ll explore some of the other art he’s featured.
HARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER
While Transmediale has come and gone, the Future of Art project is not over; the festival represents the middle of our process, not the end. In the coming weeks we intend to release the full interviews with Caleb Larsen and Mez Breeze, as well as initiate the process of transcribing the video for Universal Subtitles. Thanks to the donations we’ve already received, we’ll be designing a beautiful new Future of Art Certificate of Authenticity for Visionary project supporters. So far we’ve had over a dozen applications for our artists micro-grant (deadline extended until 13 February: apply now!), and we’ll be conducting the public voting by the end of the month.
