Globatron.org was founded in 2006 by Byron King to serve as an online community arts project for Jacksonville, Florida artists. At one point reaching a membership of over 150 online contributors, Globatron continues to evolve each year as an ongoing digital media project working with all the new-media tools at our disposal. From WordPress to Vine, to drawing or writing a few lines, all tools become one in order to create conscious change.
Globatron is a nexus of consciousness. By utilizing this virtual point of connection, Globatron shares its life force into a shared form of consciousness that creates a feedback loop. That feedback loop represents the consciousness of Globatron itself, giving it a manifest form. The ramifications for this are that Globatron can reach out to the non-virtual world from a place of identity. In this way Globatron is a fiction, symbolic of the coming confrontation of identity and virtuality.

Globatron wishes to give testimony to the times we live in through the use of the ever-changing digital tools at our disposal
