Semi-Permanent Recap

After two days in a darkened hall watching a near-constant stream of images and a diverse speaker lineup, my brain started confusing music videos with dreams and vainly tried to come up with the common thread in Semi-Permanent. Tying it all together (props to the planners for the choice), the over-caffeinated concluding speaker, Joshua Davis took the stage. His talk, centered around the concept of what he calls "dynamic abstraction," neatly summed up themes of analog vs. digital, addressed the ways that technologies shape aesthetics, and demonstrated how the Internet has changed the industry.
