Hybridity Exhibition Opening

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This exhibition emphasizes works, particularly installations, that push at the edges of literature and other forms, and that appeal to other aspects of the sensorium than those we typically associate with reading. Works for example that involve haptic sensation, touch-based interactivity, innovative audio elements, interactive images, or locative technologies.
