World on a Wire Dialogues is a joint project by Rhizome and Garage Digital (Moscow), featuring conversations with artists about the implications of simulation practices in digital art. In this conversation, artists Mikhail Maksimov (Russia) and Tabor Robak (USA) will discuss their approaches to working with digital objects and environments, touching on principles of complexity and emergence in simulated realities.
The artists in the series are drawn from the respective programs of each partner: the exhibition World on a Wire, produced by Rhizome. Participating artists will discuss different approaches to working with digital objects and systems, while also touching upon the challenges that simulation practices pose to longstanding philosophical questions about nature, aesthetics, reality, and spirituality.
The discussions will be moderated by Nikita Nechaev (Garage Digital) and Michael Connor (Rhizome).
