Upgrade Available: Julia Christensen hosts a virtual panel with Aria Dean and Jessica Gambling

Julia Christensen hosts a virtual panel discussion on Upgrade Available. The multimedia presentation centers on how relentless “upgrade culture”—the perceived notion that one needs to constantly upgrade our electronics to remain relevant—fundamentally impacts our experience of time. Panelists include Aria Dean, editor and curator at Rhizome, and Jessica Gambling, LACMA archivist. Part of LACMA’s virtual Earth Day festivities, this event emphasizes the environmental focus of Christensen’s work, as well as the planetary science that her collaborators from JPL brought into her practice.
