Europe 2019 presentations and exhibitions

21st International Conference Consciousness Reframed 2019 in Porto, Portugal from June 6-8, 2019

Installation: video poem and augmented reality (AR)

About the conference, from the website:

“The conference will look at the nature of artificial thought, and forms of intelligence in nature – charted through aspects of transdisciplinary creative practice and theory in our planetary culture.

Just as new paradigms of feeling and communication are beginning to form around our interaction with life at all levels of our perception, from plants and trees to fungi and bacteria, we may see matter as inhabited mind, media as necessarily moist, and technology as a tool of the Tao.

Thought is spreading through all our systems, places and products. We need cities  that are not only smart but sensitive: schools that think,  roads that remember, buildings that feel. art that is as much extra-sensory as interpersonal.

Our consciousness is both reframing and reforming.”

MIX2019 Experiential Storytelling in Bath, UK from July 1-2, 2019

Panel discussion where we will talk about our collaborative process and creative juices.

About the conference, from the website:

“Experiential storytelling encompasses works that foreground the experience of the audience or reader. Works that offer authentic and often personalised experiences are becoming increasingly prevalent and this year MIX offers opportunities to think about what that might mean for digitally-mediated narratives. Additional themes for this year’s conference include immersion and publishing; we define these themes broadly and are interested in how new forms of storytelling can respond to and learn from emerging works that explore the potential of immersive technologies.”

ELO (Electronic Literature Organization) Conference 2019 in Cork, Ireland from July 15-17, 2019

Exhibition of the video poem, hosted at the Glucksman Gallery, a prestigious national institution of the contemporary arts. The exhibition will be open from July 10th to allow the wider audience to experience the art.

About the event from the website:

“The theme for ELO2019 #ELOcork is “peripheries”: delegates are invited to explore the edges of literary and digital culture, including emerging traditions, indeterminate structures and processes, fringe communities of praxis, effaced forms and genres, marginalised bodies, and perceptual failings.”
