Sea Changes: Melissa Auf der Maur & Jonathan Harris in Conversation

Activities and Events

Montreal native Melissa Auf der Maur has retreated from the halls of musical fame into a cluster of creativity and community in upstate NY, where she co-founded Basilica Hudson with Tony Stone. This year she produced Stone’s documentary debut, the much acclaimed Peter and the Farm (RIDM 2016).

Jonathan Harris is a pioneer of interactive art. Using data and online stories as his raw material, he has crafted groundbreaking pieces that are as beautiful as they are thought-provoking - see this year’s The Network Effect (RIDM 2016).

At DCM this year, Melissa and Jonathan will sit together and have an organic, unscripted conversation: about the future, the past and the many sea changes in between.
