About This Show

Eccentric techno-futurologist Paul Abacus (who may or may not be the fabricated alter-ego of artist Lars Jan) presents his multimedia talking tour of our hyper-networked world to come. Flanked by balletic Steadicam operators and a giant panda, our elusive prophet walks us through a lecture that’s part TED talk, part televangelism, part new performance frontier, in the name of a world without borders. Predicated on the imminent collapse of both the nation-state and our current screen age, ABACUS is a dark roller-coaster ride through experience design[1], experimental comedy, and the underbelly of big data.
