Artist, writer and thought leader John Mack will present a dynamic talk based on his years-long exploration of the increasingly slippery boundary between reality and virtuality. Mack’s inquiry will focus on his exploration of today’s US National Parks through the lens of our digital devices to ask the question: what might our digital environments be telling us about our inner environments?

This talk coincides with his recent publication Notes to Selfie: Bits of Truth in a Phoney World and will serve as a preview of Mack’s month-long technology exhibition this September in NYC, A Species Between Worlds: Our Nature, Our Screens, which weaves a narrative arc exploring our psychological drives in an increasingly digital world.

Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook Live — Tuesday, April 19th at 7:00 pm ET.

Speakers

John Mack

John Mack is an artist, author, thought leader and the founder of the nonprofit initiative Life Calling, whose mission is to foster awareness and balance for society in the Digital Age.

A frequent speaker at conferences and universities on the subjects of technology, awareness and consciousness, Mack’s years-long exploration of these topics will culminate in A Species Between Worlds: Our Nature, Our Screens, an interactive visual art experience in the heart of New York City concerning humanity’s current migration from the natural world to the virtual world. Running the entire month of September 2022, the exhibition will convene a wide array of voices and feature diverse programs including talks and presentations, film screenings, and other educational activities.

The exhibition coincides with the publication of Mack’s collection of poetry, A Land Between Worlds: The Shifting Poetry of the Great American Landscape.  Mack recently published a book of thoughts and aphorisms Notes to Selfie: Bits of Truth in a Phoney World.
