This is the embodiment of the essence of Light – traversing the boundaries between harmony and chaos, conquest and challenge, nature and man, mystery and mastery, and the future and the past.

The following sub-themes lay out the paradoxical yet all-embracing nature of light in nature, science, and art with which Lux Aeterna challenges all participants.

  • Aeternitas: Eternity of the Mortal
  • Symphonia: Harmony of Noise
  • Illuminatio: Enlightenment of A.I & A.E
  • Penumbra: Inbetween

LUX AETERNA

ISEA is one of the world’s most prominent international arts and technology events, bringing together scholarly, artistic, and scientific domains in an interdisciplinary discussion and showcase of creative productions applying new technologies in art, interactivity, and electronic and digital media.

A topic inspired by a literal meaning of the host city Gwangju, “City of Light”, includes subcategories embracing complex themes that allow open interpretations in culture, science, and history. For example, religiously, light is implied as divinity and immortality and scientifically. it is an energy collection of particles and wavelength signals. It symbolizes the enlightenment and rationale in humanities. Also, the presence of light creates Umbra and Penumbra. In light of the fact that light is the most specific example of versatility in which various interpretations can occur, it will provide us with the context where cohesion of procedural logic based on the human sensibilities and technology of artistic inspirations is freely presented, which is in line with what ISEA has been pursuing.

  • Lux Aeterna (Eternal Light)

    – Aeternitas: Eternity of the Mortal
    – Symphonia: Harmony of Noise
    – Illuminatio: Enlightenment through A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) & A.E. (Artificial Emotion)

    – Penumbra: In-between

Creative collaboration between artists, artisans, designers, technologists, entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists and inventors will take place in a context where survival is the most basic instigator for solutions. In such a scenario, technological developments follow and support these solutions. In addition, the role of the artist is essential in providing opportunities to build new and exciting interactions between people and place.

CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

24th International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2018)

and the 5th Arts and Design Digital Festival (Digifest5)

 June 23-30, 2018

 Durban University of Technology, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

http://www.isea-international.org.2018

ISEA is one of the world’s most prominent international arts and technology events, bringing together scholarly, artistic, and scientific domains in an interdisciplinary discussion and showcase of creative productions applying new technologies in art, interactivity, and electronic and digital media.

The ISEA2018 theme of Intersections positions creative technological innovation as an activist engagement into public space and public practice. Creative collaboration between artists, artisans, designers, technologists, entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists and inventors will take place in a context where survival is the most basic instigator for solutions. In such a scenario, technological developments follow and support these solutions. In addition, the role of the artist is essential in providing opportunities to build new and exciting interactions between people and place.

ISEA2018 welcomes the following submissions:

  • Academic: papers, posters, panels and round-tables for double blind peer review.
  • Presentations and discussions: in the form of artist talks, conversation sessions and institutional presentations.
  • Creative: in the form of artworks, showcases, design solutions, socially engaged interventions, performances, residencies, workshops, tutorials.

ISEA International encourages the Host Organisation to incorporate aspects of local culture, history and traditions (as they pertain to arts and technology) to make every Symposium a unique and rewarding socio-cultural experience.

SUB-THEMES

Hybridisation and Purity

The sub-theme provides for contributions reflecting the purity of numbers, code and technology interfacing with art, as well as hybridisation in relation to art, science and technology. This sub-theme includes contributions on identities, diversity and pluralism, migration and urbanisation as well as notions of democracies – all in relation to art, science and technology. We invite contributions on the purity of technology, sound, light and the ‘fourth industrial revolution’ (artificial intelligence, virtual reality), networks and net neutrality, as well as on the digital divide and technology for development.

 

Emancipation and Pain

The sub-theme provides for contributions on the politics of art, science and technology in its broadest sense. This includes critical assessments on surveillance and intelligence; ‘high art’; elitism and exclusivity, popular culture and inclusivity. Contributions are welcomed on revolutions, reclaiming spaces and places, the ritualised everyday, contested notions of ‘informality’ and as well as on voice and voiceless. It provides for contributions on xenophobia, colonial legacies and new powers intersecting with media art practices, addressing the challenges of diversity. Contributions are welcomed on the social practice of art and science engagement, as well as on art and activism.

Spirit and Flesh

The sub-theme provides for contributions on intangible and tangible heritage; on mobius and teleos; as well as indigenous knowledge systems, reality and lived experiences. It also includes contributions on the self and the body as well as on infinity and life beyond. In addition, it provides for critical assessments on media art and culture, the relevance of the classic museum environment and the potential for public space activations.

 

In between the cracks

The sub-theme allows for contributions on anything in-between; which do not fit into identified sub-themes, and that push the boundaries of art, science and technology. Individual scholars and artists, as well as those working in groups are welcome to propose sessions, events, roundtables, exhibitions and performances which go beyond the suggested themes and which seek to enhance the overall conference experience.

The official language of the event is English. Submissions must be written in English.
