Seymour at Kinnernet Europe 2017
June 22-25, 2017
Avallon, France
We are pleased to announce that Melissa Unger will curate a project for the 2017 edition of Kinnernet Europe.
The Imagination Festival – Kinnernet-Europe – is a wild out of the box, irreverent, bottom-up innovation, creativity and cultural unconference created in 2013. The festival gathers 200 innovators and creators from all disciplines (science, business, technology, media, education, art, environment, social) and geographies (US, Europe, Israel and Asia). Their mission : meet, share their visions and invent desirable futures together. The festival mixes in-depth conversations, debates, workshops, but also creative and artistic moments. “Kinnernet gathers innovators and some of the most interesting people working in the media, art, technology or creative industries for a two days unconference.”
Melissa Unger will recreate one of the environments from the SEYMOUR+ space at Kinnernet 2017.
Wish You Were Here will be a site-specific installation that invites attendees to enter into a timeless space in which they can communicate their thoughts and emotions. Those who choose to engage with this space will enjoy a pre-technological flashback to an era when simple pleasures had an enormous impact. In alignment with this year’s theme: What does not change?, this offering will be a gentle reminder of the human need for meaningful connection to self and others.
