7:35pm - 7:45pm: Mixed Reality Performance by Micah James Zayner (Artists Are Scientists)

As an academic artist and brother of two scientists, Micah's influences urged him to create the social movement Artists Are Scientists. Always trying to stay at the forefront of art using the laws of technology, he hopes to guide young artists in a direction that pursues change and impact above entertainment, where technology is the catalyst. A random introduction to VR and Tiltbrush in a shipping container at MakerFaire 2016 led him down a winding path of coincidences to where he is today-- giving tutorials and educating those who are unaware of the amazing impact within VR art and VR creation.
