Festival subtilních technologií 2012

Toronto, Kanada V květnu 2012 proběhne na mnoha místech kanadského Toronta již 15. ročník Festivalu subtilních technologií /Subtle Technologies Festival/, zaměřeného na propojování umění, vědy a technologie. Kromě disciplín jakými jsou například akustika, alternativní zdroje energie, astronomie, či matematika přijímá letos festival práce inspirované tématem biologie. Festival by také rád prezentoval příklady úspěšné spolupráce mezi umělci a vědci.  Uzávěrka pro předložení projektů je 15. prosince 2011.
15th Annual Subtle Technologies Festival
Call for submission
Our 2012 festival takes place from May 24 to May 27 2012 at various venues throughout Toronto. Our annual open call accepts submissions that bridge art, science and technology. This year we are also accepting submissions for a themed session which explores work inspired by biology, as outlined below. For both streams we are soliciting proposals from all disciplines and also welcome topics that explore ways of knowing that are outside of the western framework.

We are interested in receiving submissions from individuals as well as interdisciplinary teams and collaborative projects. We would like to present successful stories from artists and scientists working together. We are equally interested in hearing about the issues that inhibit disciplines from collaborating. What approaches can we take to foster inter-cultural exchanges when it comes to science or technology based work? How do we make scientific systems more accessible to artists as tools for creating new work?

Possible areas to be explored in this year’s Festival from either an artistic or scientific approach include:

    Alternative energy
    Artificial intelligence
    Computer science
    Environmental science
    Funding strategies for interdisciplinary collaboration
    Hacking and DIY culture
    Imaging techniques and systems
    Interactive systems
    Indigenous science
    Network Theory
    Science and society
    Systems theory
    Virtual worlds

In 2012 Subtle Technologies is also presenting a special session at our symposium that focuses on work inspired by, utilizing or hacking biological systems. This special session will include work by artists who are using live tissues, bacteria and other biological process in their work. We are also interested in submissions exploring enhancements or modifications to the human body through transhumanism. Projects which use concepts of biomimicry, genetic engineering and synthetic biology will also be considered for this special session. We are interested in both technical and ethical issues surrounding this work.

The above topics are only suggested ones for inclusion in the Festival. Other relevant topics within the realm of art, science and technology will be considered.
Deadline: 15/12/11
