Gone in a Flash is a digital programs series from the MacKenzie Art Gallery and Neutral Ground Artist Run Centre, focusing on the upcoming dissolution of the Adobe Flash medium. Since 1996, Adobe Flash has introduced artists to interactive, animated, and web-based work. But at the end of this year, this powerful tool is being permanently removed from the Internet. What is the legacy of Flash, and why is it disappearing? This online panel brings together artists, digital archivists, and game developers to discuss their experiences with the medium and what its disappearance means for future of digital art. Panel participants Dragan Espenscheid, Jonas Richner, and Clara Chen will discuss the topic of digital art archiving from their areas of expertise.
