The Art of Technology

When technology and imagination collide, we see into the adjacent possible, find the gift of creativity, and emerge as artists.

The Art of Technology

We are all artists in our own right. Whether it’s the art of education, the art of science, or the art of storytelling, creativity will always find its way into the avenues of our lives. And yet, words like “creativity” and “artist” have been tainted to represent only a select few, leaving the rest depicted in grey. We want you to consider, if only for one night, a new definition of art…

We believe there is something that unifies every art form, and we believe that something is technology. We dream, think, and create with our tools, and in turn, our tools create us. Art asks the question “how do we use our best tools to create the world we wish to see? “ and whether it be the pen, the internet, the body or the microscope, our technologies prove to empower, liberate, and connect us as individuals and as a collective.

On April 16, 2016, TEDx NewCollegeofFlorida will illuminate a new story about technology, creativity, and what it means to be an artist. Showcasing the remarkable talent of students and experts that thrive within our community, we will discover how language, eco-buildings, virtual reality and more, can be used as tools to unlock the artist within us. Join us for a uniquely brilliant event, as our speakers, performers, and educators unfold a new chapter of art, creativity, and innovation. On behalf of TEDx and New College of Florida, we invite you to experience The Art of Technology.
