In Conversation with FuturePerfect Creative Studio

At the intersection of art and technology is FuturePerfect Creative Studio, which combines the talents of Wayne Ashley, former BAM Director of Arts in Multimedia and LMCC curator with those of software developer and musician Xander Seren. For more than a decade, the duo has worked with international artists and institutions to pioneer spaces that bridge the divide between the live and the digital. Last year, they wondered: What if the pandemic endured and people could never occupy the same space again? What kind of public life could exist? How could we reimagine live events? Join them as they share their explorations with artists such as William Kentridge and Team Rolfes and reflect on what we learned in 2020 that might make classrooms, studios, theaters and Zoom rooms more engaging and welcoming in 2022 and beyond.
