We’ve been waiting with bated breath to share with the Kcy community a more in-depth look into our latest project….And now, here’s our chance

Join us for “Flyover Country: Dialog”

For over the last two months, we have been busy at work on an installation that has been in the making for over five years (!!!). We’ve partnered with BeFantasticJaaga, and Dara.connects to create one of our most ambitious Kcymaerxthaere historic sites so far: Flyover Country. This work utilizes disputed likenesses at a scale unlike anything we have done before.

In this process, we are leveraging the intersections of technology with placemaking to enrich this newest Kcymaerxthaereal installation while leaving the power of the analog space completely intact.

To unpack these explorations of art in the digital age, BeFantastic is hosting a panel conversation between the Geographer-at-Large Eames Demetrios and artist/designer Jack Hardiker, moderated by Gayatri Nair (founder of the Chennai Photo Biennale). The conversation centers around these questions:

How can a tangible process such as placemaking be reimagined in this digital era?

How can technology be used to enhance storytelling experiences, and what role does storytelling have in ‘placemaking’ with communities?

We are inviting the Kcy Community and Friends to come together with us on September 2nd for this very special conversation between the Geographer-at-Large Eames Demetrios and artists Gayatri Nair and Jack Hardiker.

Dive in with us as we share in the trio’s discourse on storytelling and placemaking, using art and technology as the vehicles.
