ABACUS is a baroque presentation delivered by Japanese cult-icon Paul Abacus about the future of national borders, the workings of contemporary persuasion, and our evolving relationship to the screens in our public and private spaces, including our pockets.

Inspired by TED talks and mega-church media design, ABACUS features kaleidoscopic data visualizations, dancing Steadicam operators and the world’s first fully-accredited giant panda.

“Didn’t get to go to Sundance this year? Early Morning Opera’s “Abacus” topped the list for one of the most edgy, thought-provoking spectacles at the festival.”The Huffington Post
