“For those of us . . . wading rather than diving into art's new cyber-sphere, Frank Rose makes an excellent guide.” —The Atlantic
Frank Rose is the best-selling author of The Art of Immersion, hailed as “a grand trip” by Britain's New Scientist and “an essential overview” by the International Journal of Advertising. He is a leading thinker on the impact of technology on media, entertainment, and society — a theme he has explored as a contributor to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, as a former contributing editor at Wired, and as a keynote speaker at marketing conferences and film festivals worldwide.
A senior fellow at Columbia University School of the Arts, Frank is faculty director of its Strategic Storytelling seminar, presented in partnership with Columbia Business School Executive Education, and director of the Digital Dozen: Breakthroughs in Storytelling awards at its Digital Storytelling Lab.
“Frank Rose was the perfect keynote. . . . His expertise, insight and thoughtful provocation really engaged the audience and brought brilliant context to the discussions of the day.”
—Anna Higgs, Film4
“Frank Rose's talk was spot on. It was fascinating, exciting and amusing. It sparked quite some debate during the following days of the festival and people still talk about it, so it was memorable, too.” —Mark Atkin, Crossover Summit at Sheffield Doc/Fest
