Participating artists Ana Maria Milan, Pemke Hereiraben, Ed Minolity, Korakrit Arunnannonchai, and Moon Kyungwon had an artist talk about digital culture, feminism, and its performance relationship; how to build a virtual world through science fiction; and how to explore urban history through the platform of collective intelligence.
