NOW JUMP, the festival’s title, originates in the punch line from one of Aesop’s fables: “Hic Rhodus, Hic saltus!” NOW JUMP is an appeal to not simply rely on past achievements: NOW is always the time to act and JUMP. This title is an invitation or call to action but also represents the ambition of the Nam June Paik Art Center to leap into the future through the NJP Festival.

Mass Studies showcases Seoul Commune 2026 in this festival, using mixed media of projections, models, wall prints and intruded images.

Location: Nam June Paik Art Center, Yongin, Gyeonggido, Korea
Duration: October 8 2008 ~ February 5 2009

Dialog:City is an arts and cultural event that catalyzes civic discourse by inviting internationally renowned artists and designers to create participatory, interactive, and dialogical site-specific works in neighborhoods across the city of Denver for citizens and audiences of the greater Denver region. From political Karaoke, digital projections of Veteran stories from a Humvee, and a technology hip-hop opera on the climate impact on Antarctica - Dialog:City is a cutting-edge convergence of art and public life.

Inspired on the occasion of the City of Denver hosting the Democratic National Convention, Dialog:City is a non-partisan creative and civic catalyst whose mission is to spark dialogue across the city through innovative cultural initiatives.

Mass Studies was invited to participate, and our project Air Forest is on display during the event for the public to enjoy.

Dialog:City exhibitions are open to the public over the week of August 21 to August 29th.
