Austin to participate in international new media exhibit

Monday, April 10, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Two years ago, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization honored Austin as a “City of Media Arts” – the first and only city in the country to earn such a distinction. Later this month, Austin will represent the U.S. at UNSECO’s Data City, a “collective exhibition” of “work likely to confront the city’s DNA in digital terms and future tools,” to be held in a suburb of Paris. The city’s contribution comes courtesy of University of Texas assistant professor Clay Odom, who created Flowering Phantasm to explore “the complex relationships between people, space, nature, and technology.” Data City runs April 21-July 13.
