At its best, creative inquiry offers intellectual nourishment, empowerment and solace. At the end of 2016, we need all of those, which is why remembering – and celebrating – the outstanding work done this year is all the more important. Over the past twelve months we’ve added more than 100 projects to our archive – and with your help we’ve selected the favourite ones!
Over the last 9 years it has become a habit on CAN for as the year-end approaches to look back at some of the projects that have made a mark. We have done this in the form of ‘best of’ or more subtly ‘most memorable’ but this year we are doing it slightly differently. We invite you, the community, to be judges!
Huge stroboscopic datastreams, hypnotic human-machine choreographies, a cacophony of Korean, Japanese, English, German, and French – ten weeks ago, from November 25th to 28th 2015, an unlikely cross-cultural exchange took over the all new ACT Center in Gwangju, South Korea. More than a hundred artists, designers, curators, and educators answered our invitation to add their work and voice to the inaugural edition of ACT Festival, an opening celebration for the center’s monumental facilities.

With HOLO 1 being in the world for a little more than two months, the conversations about the first issue of CAN’s 226-page magazine are beginning to shift. Instead of “Congratulations!” people now ask “How’s the magazine doing?”
