Objects of Fascination (OF), the Currents New Media Store, is a fresh new enterprise to showcase objects of fascination that marry hand and machine crafted work. The goal of the store is to support artists working on the evolving edge of creativity using innovative technical, computer driven tools, as well as to provide financial sustainability for CURRENTS and the new media community.
The store will open in June 2018 in conjunction with the CURRENTS New Media Festival in Santa Fe, NM. Inventory will be available online through our website in the fall of 2018. We hope, in the future to expand into physical locations in Santa Fe and elsewhere.
We are now accepting product submissions for the launch of OF this coming June.
Some of the categories we are looking for include but are not limited to:
