ABOUT ISEA2015 Vancouver
20 years after its first occurrence in Montreal in 1995, the 21st International Symposium
on Electronic Arts (ISEA2015) returns to Canada. Hosted by Simon Fraser University's
School of Interactive Arts + Technology, School for Contemporary Arts, and FCAT; ISEA2015
presents a rich academic program rooted in both the humanities and sciences, as well as a
groundbreaking art program.
ISEA2015 is a six-day symposium featuring over 450 speakers, workshops, tutorials, panels,
papers and institutional presentations. It showcases over 180 artworks ranging from
large-scale interactive installations to cutting-edge electronic music performances. The
theme of ISEA2015—Disruption—encourages us to re-examine and re-negotiate the frontiers
between academia and art, practice and theory, systems and reality, art and society.
Centered at SFU Woodward's downtown campus , ISEA2015’s programming will overflow to
venues across Metro Vancouver. Partners include local artistic organisations and venues
such as the Vancouver Art Gallery, Western Front, VIVO, the Museum of Vancouver, Grunt
Gallery, Vancouver New Music, 221A, New Westminster New Media Gallery, Fortune Sound Club,
the New Forms Festival, and more.
ISEA2015 will explore subthemes around the potential of electronic arts to reach out into
the world and effect genuine change. These subthemes include Climate Change, Disruption
and Urban Landscapes, Contemporary Curatorial Practices, Media Activism and Subversion,
DIY Technology, BioArt, Sound Ecology, Embodied Art Practices, Geopolitics, and more.
To frame the discussion around the artistic, scientific, technological, and social
manifestations of disruption as a cultural phenomenon, ISEA2015 will feature keynote
addresses by visionaries such as Brian Massumi, Michael Connor, Dominique Moulon,
Hildegard Westerkamp, and Sara Diamond. Master disruptors The Yes Men will close the
symposium with an address on the use of creative expression for subversion and
