The Banff New Media Institute is looking for Artists/Writers/Theorists to participate in a discursively rich and provocative Think Tank this coming September entitled Smart, Sexy, Healthy (see description below). Cultural producers who engage with the technological revamping of the physical by visioning other spaces, places, and experiences are asked to contribute and be a part of the six year legacy of high wire networking and sublime nature that comprises the Banff New Media Institute.
Smart, Sexy and Healthy
September 6 – 8, 2001
How can we use technology to imagine another’s experience? This think tank brings together able bodied and disabled designers, technology users, theorists, researchers, health care practitioners, and technology developers, to explore the capabilities of networked and immersive technologies to educate, heal, and redefine sensory perception and experience. How can the new possibilities for visualization provided by computer technologies make us more aware of each other’s challenges and physical experiences? What are the limits of networks and technologies in diagnosis and application? Issues include Diagnostics and Technologies; Extended Perceptions; Integration, Cultural Differences and Health in Networked Contexts. One case study will include the navigation of The Banff Centre campus.
If you have special needs, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
