Digimag Journal - Issue 69 / Winter 2013
Call for papers: “Uncertainty Reloaded“
Deadline: 4 March 2013
On December 2012, scholars, artists and scientists gathered at MutaMorphosis (Prague, Dec 6-8) to discuss a topic that has become increasingly crucial during our uncertain times: The event was entitled “Tribute to Uncertainty” – http://mutamorphosis.org/2012/.
Surprisingly, despite the thematic focus, no definition of uncertainty was attempted, as presenters proceeded to report their experience with uncertain phenomena and situations. While traditional panels and fora were priceless to shed precious light on the intricacies of uncertainty (uncertainty principle, social and political uncertainty, the value of uncertainty as a methodological tool, uncertainty in sensorial perception, space and architecture, etc..) most crucial dialogues unavoidably occurred outside of the traditional constraints of the conference format. Led by similar concerns but approaching the topic from a number of different perspectives and disciplinary viewpoints, individuals engaged in often productive, sometimes frustrating discussions and conversations
In acknowledging the richness that characterized this extraordinary event, this issue of Digicult Journal is interested in receiving articles, exchanges, creative collaborations, artworks, reviews, creative writings emerged from or inspired by Mutamorphosis and/or by the topics (uncertainty and its many instances/connotations) explored during the event and beyond.
