The good folks behind (the now defunct) RES Magazine, purveyors of innovative art, design, film and culture, make their first public appearence tonight under their new banner, Tomorrow Unlimited. While no one seems to know exactly what Tomorrow Unlimited will be doing, tonight’s launch of “The Creative Series” showcase — described as a “multidisciplinary salon-style conference dedicated to emerging creativity” — offers the first tangible evidence of their ethos.
I’ve been told highlights of the weekend include an appearence from Nieto, a French-Colombian artist and filmmaker whose insidious little magical shorts can be seen here and a panel on web-enabled “Participatory Filmmaking,” which will include film futurist Matt Hanson (“A Swarm of Angels“), interactive filmmaker Martin Percy, and multidisciplinary artist Chris Doyle (“50,000 Beds,” a collective video art project exploring the intersection of labor and tourism in Connecticut hotel rooms).
