OUR THEME: TECHNOLOGY AS SAVIOR!
Through a multitude of technological devices we have expanded our sense of what is real, what is possible, how we relate and what we find gratifying. We can text one another instantaneously across oceans, meet and converse online with groups of strangers at any given moment about the trajectory of asteroids, express our opinions to political leaders via e-mail, and expand our social network of “friends” seemingly without limit! We watch reality shows about other’s lives and create better virtual versions of ourselves as we fly through the Interwebs in enhanced real-time. Miraculous devices have become so ingrained in who we are, how we work, think and relate that we could not imagine life without them or the immediacy and satisfaction they offer. And why would we?! Technology is SAVING our economy and way of life, even as it reinvents everything!
It is magic AND salvation! Or is it an addictive form of social euphoria? Maybe both.
We encourage you to embody and interpret this theme as you feel inspired, to bring some form of technology—whether an eggbeater or a mainframe; and merge with Technology to create a living altar to technologies – past, present and future!
…And if we can’t save the day, well…at least we’ll make a good night of it!
So, whether you come as a GIZMOpolitan, a GADJETarian, a Technopheliac…or skip all the BITS and BYTES and come as you truly are—we look forward to seeing you and creating a most unusual immersive social environment TOGETHER!
