ISEA 2015 - 21st International Symposium on Electronic Art

14 Août 2015 - 19 Août 2015

Du 14 au 19 août aura lieu ISEA 2015, le vingt-et-unième symposium sur l'art électronique dans la ville de Vancouver. La première Canadienne du symposium s'est d'ailleurs tenue à Montréal en 1995!
Cette année, conférenciers et artistes sont réunis sous le thème "Disruption" par le biais de conférences, de tables rondes et d'ateliers. Les conférenciers d'honneurs sont The Yes Men (Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno), Michael Connor, Brian Massumi, Dominique Moulon, Hildegard Westerkamp et Sara Diamond. 

Plus sur le thème:
"ISEA2015’s theme of DISRUPTION invites a conversation about the aesthetics of change, renewal, and game-changing paradigms. We look to raw bursts of energy, reconciliation, error, and the destructive and creative forces of the new. Disruption contains both blue sky and black smoke. When we speak of radical emergence we must also address things left behind. Disruption is both incremental and monumental.

In practices ranging from hacking and detournement to inversions of place, time, and intention, creative work across disciplines constantly finds ways to rethink or reconsider form, function, context, body, network, and culture. Artists push, shape, break; designers reinvent and overturn; scientists challenge, disprove and re-state; technologists hack and subvert to rebuild.

Disruption and rupture are fundamental to digital aesthetics. Instantiations of the digital realm continue to proliferate in contemporary culture, allowing us to observe ever-broader consequences of these effects and the aesthetic, functional, social and political possibilities that arise from them.

Within this theme, we want to investigate trends in digital and internet aesthetics and revive exchange across disciplines. We hope to broaden the spheres in which disruptive aesthetics can be explored, crossing into the worlds of science, technology, design, visual art, contemporary and media art, innovation, performance, and sound."
