ISEA 2023 – SYMBIOSIS

Symbiosis is a cornerstone of life itself — no organism, nor any species more widely, could survive in isolation and without reciprocity. This applies as much to human societies as to the rapport of those societies with their surrounding environments. More than a simple co-existence, symbiosis implies interdependence. It can be positive, neutral, or negative, varying according to the dynamic between the rapport’s attendant parts. We must, then, choose our symbiotic models wisely. This is the ori...

ECHO #5 – Technology, Mediation, Performance

How does technology inform, shape, mediate and constrain our conceptions and practices of performance? This issue begins with an expanded understanding of ‘technology’. Not only specific technologies (notation, the oboe, recording, the internet, VR), but also wider technological discourses of practical, environment, and conceptual thought-space (heliocentrism, the steam engine, computation and our common extended reality).

The 13th International Conference on Computational Creativity (ICCC’22)

Computational Creativity (or CC) is a discipline with roots in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Cognitive Science, Engineering, Design, Psychology and Philosophy, and which explores the potential for computers to be autonomous creators in their own right. ICCC is an annual conference that welcomes papers on different aspects of CC, on systems that exhibit varying degrees of creative autonomy, on frameworks that offer greater clarity for thinking about machine (and human) creativity, on methodologie...

ISEA 2023 – Symbiosis

In an era of global crisis — ecologic and economic; sanitary and socio-political — symbiosis is a notion that allows us to explore the metamorphoses afoot and to imagine possible futures. This symposium offers an incubator where artists, designers, scientists, and other thinkers will dialogue and debate on process and practice, exhibiting novel projects along the way.

The Screen as Surface, Site and Space

What is evident when exploring these optical histories is the primacy of space for the structuring of experience, and how spatial ontology is continuously redefined by milestones in screen technology development. By reflecting on historical precedents, how might this further enrich our understanding of the materiality of screen as media?

Second Summit on New Media Art Archiving at ISEA2022

The need to preserve the history of the rapidly evolving field of new media arts has spurred the development of a wide variety of new media art archives throughout the world. Museums, cultural and educational institutions, as well as individuals with collections have developed, or are planning to create, physical and/or online archives in an effort to preserve important artifacts and document events and works.

Call for interest to participate in the Artificial Biology, Robotics, and Art (ABRA) Workshop Series

ABRA (Artificial Biology, Robotics, and Art) is an Erasmus+ consortium project for developing transdisciplinary education in arts, robotics, artificial biology, and sustainability. Through hands-on workshops and training, teachers and students tackle the skill-gaps within these disciplines while also addressing sustainability and climate goals. In this entanglement, new questions and new solutions are expected to be generated.

Within the Frame: Continuum of the Still Image

We are interested in a range of approaches including those from the past and those from the bleeding edge, using out of the box or homespun tools. Still images of any kind are welcome as our ultimate goal is to not only establish how digital methods are essential to image making, but also to highlight and perhaps remind us that the single image is still powerful and still important now, more than ever.

ISEA 2022 – Possibles

How to draw new Possibles to come, and not just confirming those that are there waiting to be confirmed, experienced and thought, as Possibles that can be brought to existence in our worldview? How to move from the impossible, the fable or the utopia to directly bite into our reality? The Possible is inscribed within the arts, design, sciences and technologies that surround us now and those yet to come.

Art and Critical Ecologies: Multiscalar Engagements

We believe this will be East Asia’s first conference on art and ecology. Our hope is that this conference will bring together researchers and practitioners working in the intersections of art, ecology, indigeneity, geopolitics, and STS (science and technology studies) to build a cross-regional network of sustainable collaboration.

Digital Matters: Designing/Performing Agency for the Anthropocene

In scholarship the Anthropocene has been tied up with the experience of the unthinkable­­ by thinkers including Timothy Morton, Donna Haraway, and Amitav Ghosh. Yet, the current COVID-19 pandemic—which as a crisis also exemplifies the human impact on and a reshaping of environments—challenges the pervasiveness of the key concepts of abstraction and unthinkability. Instead, the pandemic has turned the Anthropocene into a concrete, intensely lived, globally shared experience.

Online Education: Teaching in a Time of Change

Recent events across the world of academia have brought into full light the various agendas around online education and research. As universities, schools and colleges closed across the world in 2020, researchers, teachers and students scrambled to adapt to a whole host of new pedagogical tools, communicative techniques, learning methods and teaching styles almost overnight. Some survived, others thrived, while some struggled and ultimately went ‘out of business’.

DESAIGN – The Impact of artificial Intelligence (AI) on Contemporary Design

These developments in AI pose a significant threat to many design professionals who will be replaced by artificial intelligence that will make human labour redundant. However, the integration of AI systems into the design process also provides new opportunities: collaboration with AI systems allows for design on a level of complexity and scale that human cognition cannot encompass. Therefore, based on the recognition of the creative capabilities of the machine, the challenge for designers today ...

2nd Conference on AI Music Creativity (MuMe + CSMC)

Performing [with] machines. The dual meaning of this title hints towards an understanding of the machine as a performing agent in a human-machine partnership. By putting the emphasis on creative human-machine partnerships in performative contexts, this theme aims to encourage artistic and scientific contributions that deal with the different ways in which musicianship, authorship and performership are challenged, extended and redefined in the era of AI.
