Want to see science meet art? Technology, activism and pop culture proceed hand in hand in this new exhibition staged by the OCC in collaboration with Ars Electronica, the innovative research and new media cultural centre from Linz, Austria.

Can a work of art create new forms of energy? How would you represent your digital persona in this socially networked world of ours?

Hybrids explores the concept of hybridism—the mixing of different media and idioms to create new forms of artistic expression. Artworks, workshops and performances in a new media show which transcends the boundaries separating art from scientific research. Putting the post- in digital art today at the OCC.
