InterAccess 30th Anniversary MECHA KUCHA
On Thursday, January 16, 2014, a culmination of concepts, tools and devices, and other terms of reference that have shaped and transformed new media art practices over the last three decades, will be manifested in a jam packed evening of 3-minute talks by 30 practitioners.
Mutating the popular Pecha Kucha presentation format somewhat, InterAccess's MECHA KUCHA aims to mix things up by intermingling decades, media, forms, disciplines, pasts and futures. We invite 30 practitioners from diverse areas to present and perform their terms of choice.

The aim of the event is to performatively construct a common toolbox for insight into the specific practices constituted through new media art practice locally and beyond over the years. By taking a non-linear, non-chronological approach, the MECHA KUCHA hopes to enliven and enrich new media modalities and energies generated by the community to take into the future.
