ASU and Emerge are proud to present a distinguished line-up of thought leaders and futurists for the conference-closing Keynotes Mashup Session (March 3, open to the public with RSVP) including Stewart Brand (The Whole Earth Discipline), Bruce Sterling (The Difference Engine, Beyond the Beyond), Sherry Turkle (Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other), Bruce Mau (Incomplete Manifesto for Growth, Massive Change Network), Neal Stephenson (Snow Crash, The Diamond Age, Reamde) and ASU President Michael Crow.
This day of imagination and exploration transforms into Immerge – an evening festival of interactive, atmospheric wonder. Improvisational actors entice the crowd to interact with installations, sensors and portable devices, paint the Nelson Fine Arts Plaza with three-dimensional projection, fill its plaza with uncanny sound and complete a dramatic story combining technology and artistry like never before.
All events are free and open to the public.
