MEDIA ART SCOPING STUDY SYMPOSIUM
Media Art Scoping Symposium
Vital Signs: Revisited
Media art education at the intersection of science, technology and culture
Call for Papers: Deadline 27th March
Date: July 4th 2009
Location: Victorian College of the Arts
The media/electronic art scoping symposium seeks to explore the current
pioneering educators, artists and scientists who have brought about the
dissolution of boundaries that have traditionally existed between the
artistic and technological disciplines. The symposium will survey the work
of media art educators who have developed new interdisciplinary curricula,
facilities and information technologies.
Paul Brown is an artist and writer who has specialised in art, science &
technology since the late-1960s and in computational & generative art since
the mid 1970s.
The symposium aims to add to the media art scoping study via collaborating
between leading universities in Australia currently conducting research and
academic teaching and learning programs in new media/electronic arts.
The symposium will explore influential theoretical, scientific and
philosophical pedagogies that have influenced the development of
It is the ambition of the scoping project to establish the basis for a
functional network model. Significantly, the establishment of an online
historical database and link to the symposium will provide a body of
information to assist development of appropriate infrastructure reflecting
an approach to training that is in tune with the distinctive characteristics
of the discipline area now and for the future.
The Mass symposium calls for refereed and non referred papers, posters on
the following themes
media art, media art histories and associated pedagogical strategies
media art in the context of contemporary art education
examples of media art, descriptions and analysis of science, media art
creative practice as research in new media
media art innovations in teaching and learning
These would be based on the introduction and infiltration of digital media,
technologies and related pedagogies in disciplines such as Art & Design,
Architecture, the Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences; as well as examples of
interdisciplinarity through art-science-technology collaborations.
We particularly wish to encourage presentations from and about new
developments in teaching Media Art. Proposals are welcomed from academics,
artists, theorist, and researchers in media art, media art history,
performance studies, literature, film, and science and technology studies.
Deadline for 200 word abstracts: 27th March 09. Please submit proposals by
Julian Stadon Media Art Scoping Symposium organizer.
Abstracts of proposals, panel presentations and posters should be submitted
in either text, RTF, or Word formats.
This media art scoping study symposium is the first component of the media

Utopian Practices: Art, Science and Design REunited

science and design were once closely tied to one another, but in the
modern age technological specialisation and other divisions brought
about a fragmentation of these fields. Increasingly, however, we have
begun noticing a number of cross-pollinations between fine arts,
applied arts and the sciences. During the conference 'Utopian
Practices: Science, Art & Design REunited', a number of pioneers in
this issue will present some surprising connections between the various
disciplines like Susan Kennard, Executive Director of the new media
institute BANFF in Canada will talk about the unique way that BANFF
brings together researchers, artists and designers. Professor Emeritus
Martin Kemp from Oxford University will discuss the similarities
between artists and scientists based on what he calls ‘structural
intuition’. And artist Beatriz da Costa will tell us how difficult it
is to break down the barriers between art and science based on the
question ‘when does Art become Science?’
Utopian Practices is
the official opening for a programme dealing with the daily practice of
art, science and design organised by Waag Society, the Royal
Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences’ Virtual Knowledge Studio and
The Arts & Genomics Centre at Leiden University.

the 090909 UpStage Festival, taking place on 9 September this year. If
you are interested in submitting a proposal, please try to come along to
this session. It will be an opportunity to learn about 090909 and the

information on the web site, and there will be more open sessions.
If you are a newbie and want to learn the basics of UpStage, you are
welcome to come along to this session but be aware that the focus will
be on 090909 rather than teaching you the ropes. You will still be able
