We live in two worlds, one of physical being and one of identity. We live in the physical world of our bodies, place, architecture and transportation. In the virtual world, however, we have dual identities: who we think we are internally, as well as the parallel digital identity provided to us and by us through credit cards, social networks, RFIDs, and avatars.
This duality of virtual identities reveals an important question: Why is it that our virtual existence seems so natural?
Creating the museum of tomorrow isn’t only about featuring the latest whiz-bang, high-tech smart devices. It involves smartly using resources to connect people with information.
This maxim applies to everything from conversations and social networks to the ways in which we use media and technology to elegantly facilitate those dialogues.
Eli Kuslansky, Managing Partner at Unified Field will give a lecture on Media Architecture Media Architecture is an evolving discipline and market that combines digital media, networks and the built environment.
