Two years have passed since the last New York Electronic Arts Festival, and we find ourselves in a world that is at once familiar and foreign. As we embrace the ethos of the 21st century, we see in technology that which is ubiquitous, indispensable, fun, terrifying, perplexing, astounding, frustrating and mysterious. Its rapid progress inspires, in each generation, a renewed desire to understand, use and develop technology in all its forms.

NYEAF 2015 was programmed with this in mind. Technology can play a role that is both daunting and exhilarating, and art is the most vital tool we have for realizing the potential of our technologies. We have organized this year’s festival around the theme of Plausible Worlds, a challenge to artists to define his/her/their relationship to art and technology and, through this, explore the limits of human agency and imagination.
