The NYEAF Petcha Kucha will feature artists Claudia Robles, Richard Jochum, Liz Phillips, Matthew Ostrowski, Marshall Reese/Nora Ligorano and Claudia Hart moderated by executive producer Carol Parkinson. Petcha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights. Launched ten years ago, NYEAF provides a discursive public context for the appreciation of cutting-edge electronic artwork, a showcase of exciting interdisciplinary work and technological virtuosity. Attendees get an overview of how technology is being used in various artistic disciplines, and have the opportunity to take part in a discussion about how these technologies will continue to shape contemporary art practice. Richard Jochum’s Crossword Project and Thirty-Two Angry Dogs, two large-scale media installations, will be on display as part of the New York Electronic Arts Festival 2017 in DUMBO, Brooklyn from June 1 – 30, 2017.
