The NowNet Arts Conference, taking place virtually November 4th–7th, is an annual event for artists, technologists, researchers, educators and industry professionals advancing topics in contemporary arts for the ongoing development of the field. This year’s theme is “Network Arts: Transformation of Distance" which makes reference to geographic distance in addition to broader concepts such as physical, emotional, societal, environmental, and dimensional distance.
