Visioner av Nuet: Stockholm Festival for Art and Technology, Fylkingen, Stockholm, 2013 was a three-day festival and congress initiated by artist Anna Lundh on the subjects of art and technology.
Visions of the Now was a reconsideration of the festival and congress Visioner av Nuet, which took place at Tekniska Museet in Stockholm in 1966. Together with graphic designers Konst & Teknik, Anna Lundh and I developed a publication that would serve as an archive of the two festivals. Much like an actual archive, its contents were diverse and at times incongruous; but together, they illustrated the the shifting complexity of artists' attitudes toward technology and electronic tools.

At the festival itself, Anna, Peter and Mattias of Konst & Teknik and I created an interactive "book workshop", where festival-goers could participate in the creation and documentation of their own publications.
