About the lecture:
From May-Har Li: “I plan to speak about the topic of performance art. I want to open the forum up to investigate where humanity intersects with technology. How has this evolved? What influence does this have on the performer and the audience? How has media changed due to these collaborations? What does the future hold for both the artist and technology? What can businesses like my own prepare and expect for the future?”
