A Species Between Worlds

A Signature Program by Life Calling

In responding to the call for preserving our humanity in the Digital Age, A Species Between Worlds’ educational forum and immersive exhibition is an invitation to contemplate our relationship to our devices and the surrounding world while inciting the introspection needed to prevent the loss of our humanity.

Immersive Photography Exhibition & Gamified Meditation

A Species Between Worlds is a gamified meditation examining the intersection of humanity and technology. Sparked by the Pokémon Go® craze and a subsequent stampede in Taipei in 2016, Mack has sought to explore the often slippery intersection of virtuality and reality through a technology-forward narrative arc that centers the individual and aims to foster balance and awareness between our technology and ourselves. Featuring more than 65 artworks including imagery of more than 50 U.S. National Parks and the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, the exhibition features a customized app, which guides visitors through a gamified psychological exploration framed by the artifice of the Pokémon Go® interface, which gradually fades as reality is restored.

Forum

The A Species Between Worlds Forum combines thought-provoking artwork with an innovative program exploring the nexus of new technology and human behavior with a group of intersectional leaders from the fields of art, academia, technology, and business. Together, we seek to understand our relationship with technology through interactive panels, deep-dive conversations, town halls, partner events, performances, and more. The New York Forum featured programming partnerships with the David Lynch Foundation, the Center for Earth Ethics, Digital Fashion Week, Center for Humane Technology, Fairplay, New York Center for Living, The Explorer’s Club, and many others.
