9e2 draws together artists, engineers, and scientists from across the United States, as well as from Seattle’s art community, technology companies, and schools. We highlight and celebrate Seattle’s place as a center for creativity and exploration of new technologies, build connections between artists, scientists, and the community, and commemorate a half-century of the artistic traditions engendered by the original 9 Evenings. At the same time, we expect 9e2 to leave a forward-looking legacy: new work, new bonds between artists and technologists, new ways of looking at and using technology, and a new awareness of the interconnections between science, technology, and art.
More on the history of 9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering here.
Established in 2016, localhost is a space dedicated to experiments in contemporary art. The gallery is not limited by typical constraints, because it exists inside Minecraft. For each exhibition, the gallery is rebuilt to create a unique viewing experience. We are especially dedicated to creating exhibitions which confront urgent and important contemporary issues.
Localhost is a term used in computer networking, which is used to reference back to the source computer. The gallery has taken its name, a bit paradoxically, from this term to illustrate the idea that guests can visit the space from their own computers - the gallery comes to the viewer.
fearless360º is a collective of artists, educators, media makers and agitators who are working to make the Silicon Rainforest, in the Pacific Northwest, the center for what it means to be human. their niche in the XR space is informed by their backgrounds as educators and award winning media makers, and their approach to technology as artists, where content drives the tools. they're inspired by the potential of interdisciplinary, immersive and expanded media to round out binaries, create new spaces for meeting and connection, to solve artistic and social problems, and to help us understand what is uniquely human in a time in which machines and machine intelligence increasingly shape our lives. Guided by a commitment to “XR For Everyone”, they work with artists, technologists, schools, libraries, arts and culture organizations, city government, and business, to produce showcases, incubators and educational programming to bring immersive experiences to general audiences.
