Conflux, the art and technology festival for the creative exploration of urban public space, presents 75+ interactive art and technology events over the weekend of October 08–10, 2010 in the East Village. Participants will transform the neighborhood into a street-based laboratory with art installations, interactive performances, games, guided expeditions and more. Indoor events, headquartered at NYU’s Barney Building (34 Stuyvesant St.), include a keynote address by renowned urban explorer Steve Duncan, evening performances and the Conflux Café series of artist-led talks and workshops.

As a leading venue for cutting-edge work by public-space artists, technologists, scholars and practitioners of contemporary psychogeography (the study of the geographic environment’s effects on our emotions and behavior), Conflux provides an open framework for the examination, celebration and (re)construction of everyday city life. Outdoor Conflux events are free; a one-day pass for the Conflux Café is $5 ($3/students). Purchase tickets now.
