The thing artists and tech have in common sometimes is that the creation/vision is too far ahead and the world has to catch up. This NOEW exhibit ultimately means I have another great opportunity to showcase talented creators from across the city and lift up how artists can creatively innovate to bridge the gap between all mediums.” – Cypher
