Early bird registration still available!

EMPAC will be hosting Cybernetics: Art, Design, Mathematics – A Meta-Disciplinary Conversation (C:ADM2010), an international and interdisciplinary conference co-sponsored with the American Society of Cybernetics and the School of Architecture at Rensselaer.

C:ADM2010 brings together practitioners and theorists from four disciplines in an extended conversation in order to explore questions that are common to all of them. The conference involves a balanced mix of individuals from art, cybernetics, design and mathematics that have, until now, not assembled simultaneously and purposefully. Here the effort is not to document contemporary development within these fields, that is, to share those things already known, but to generate the interaction that leads to new ideas, discoveries and partnerships. This novel approach distinguishes this conference from those with a more typical disciplinary focus and traditional format.

Each of the four disciplines represented at the conference share an interest in certain questions that will be topics for discussion. These include, the nature of transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary work, ways to crossover between discplines, the concepts of metaphor, aesthetics, process in each of these fields, and the relationship between the actual and the abstract.

Additional information about the conference and surrounding events can be found at the conference's website.

Résumé and informal letter of application are due by June 30, 2010!

EMPAC will present its first summer lab for interactive media in performance this August 16-22, 2010. Directed by Johannes Birringer and Mark Coniglio, the workshop offers intensive training and possibilities for experimentation with mixed reality and real time architectures, programmable environments, interactive design and the integration of time-based media into live performance and installation.

The workshop addresses emerging and professional art practitioners, scientists, researchers, and students from different backgrounds in performance and new media committed to sharing their interest in developing a deeper understanding of composing work focused on real time, interactive or time-based experiences and multidisciplinary collaborative processes (video, sound processing, projection design, lighting, choreography, and directing).

More information on this workshop can be found on the EMPAC website.
