About the show

You’re creative. You work in tech. What does it mean to be creative with tech? Make art with tech? What’s ‘new media’, anyways? We’re diving deeper into the work of artists that we love, and how their work has influenced culture in more ways that we can see. Every episode we’ll invite two creatives to discuss various topics around what it means to be an artist using new mediums, or old mediums in new ways.

That's So New Media!? on social media

    Long gone are the days of making mixtapes and putting collages together -- they just don’t mean the same thing in the 21st century. How has new tech changed the way we express our affection? What happens when you break up? What does the ownership of that mean? Who owns the website? The file?

    Ideally, we’d live in a world where we can make a living off of our personal art practice. But that takes time, and life takes...rent, food, stability. How do we juggle between commercial work (driven by clients/advertising) and artwork based on our personal practice?
