’s Seven on Seven conference pairs seven leading artists with seven influential technologists in teams of two, and challenges them to develop something new — be it an application, artwork, concept, product, or whatever they imagine — over the course of a single day.

This year's collaborators are:

Susan Phillipsz + Naveen Selvadurai (Foursquare)
Jonas Lund + Michelle You (Songkick)
Mark Leckey + Daniel Williams
Aleksandra Domanović + Smári McCarthy (IMMI)
Cecil B. Evans + Alice Bartlett (BERG)
Haroon Mirza + Ryder Ripps (OKFocus)
Graham Harwood + Alberto Nardelli (Tweetminister)

Loosely inspired by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.)'s 1966 event 9 Evenings, Seven on Seven examines the current nature of collaboration in art and technology — and the role of each in contemporary culture — by generating deep conversation between two leading figures. The seven teams unveil and present their newly finished concept to a mixed audience of both art and technology peers for the first time in this day-long event.

The Barbican event, organised by online arts nonprofit Rhizome, marks the first London version of a four time sold-out international conference. Past Seven on Seven teams have included David Karp (Tumblr) with Ryan Trecartin, Aaron Swartz (DemandProgress) with Taryn Simon, Dennis Crowley (Foursquare) with Jill Magid and more. More documentation and details available on the Rhizome website.
