Super Human Revolution of the Species is an international event
comprising a symposium, exhibition, masterclass and public talk
investigating collaborative art and science practices and their
relationship with the human body.
Symposium abstracts are invited from either individual or team-based
researchers, artists and scientists. Submitted abstracts will undergo a
double-blind referee process, with successful applicants invited to
submit their paper prior to final acceptance.
THE CALL FOR ABSTRACTS DEADLINE IS 30 MARCH 2009
Taking place in Melbourne on 22 - 25 November 2009, the Super Human
symposium will present an invigorating and inspiring mix of keynote
speakers and collaborative research projects engaging with one or more
of the symposium themes: Augmentation, Cognition and Nanoscale
Questions that the symposium will address include, but are not limited
to: How do scientific and artistic bodies of knowledge intersect with
human, social bodies? Does art serve simply as a representational tool
for the sciences or is there more to the picture than that? Does
research into bodies and their systems offer an insight into
aesthetics, or is it confined to the purely functional?
