> The Digital Art Weeks PROGRAM (DAW06) is concerned with the
> application of
> digital technology in the arts. Consisting of symposium, workshops and
> performances,
> the program offers insight into current research and innovations in
> art and
> technology as well as illustrating resulting synergies in a series of
> performances
> during the Digital Art Weeks Festival each year, making artists aware
> of

>
> [Kon.[Text]], this year?s Digital Art Weeks SYMPOSIUM concerns the use
> of
> the Performative Surround in the arts and the technology that drives
> it.
> The Performative Surround pertains to the immersive quality and
> quantity
> of the setting of a performative artwork that uses electronic media
> enhancement.
> Enhanced media art is any artwork that uses electronic media to
> communicate
> in part or in whole its message to the viewer. The viewer may be
> therewith
> integrated into the performative arena through the use of the
> communicative
> powers of the applied media.
>
> In a series of lectures, demonstrations, panels and performances,
> artists
> and researcher will examine the use of electronic media in
> articulating the
> performer?s presence through the possibilities of the multi-sensuality
> of
> electronic media. The possibilities of blurring the divide between
> public
> and performer to bond them through the powers of dissemination and
> inclusion
> inherent within the technology behind the performative surround will
> also
> be considered as well as how communication between both performer and
> public
> can be interactively networked in real time through various forms of
> computer
> enhanced dialoging.
>
> To draw a parallel between the symposium?s title [Kon.[Text]] and the
> phrase
> ?in the body of the text? in terms how both performer and public are
> virtually
> networked by the expansion of the real into virtual, issues in media
> enhanced
> performance and its re-embodiment into the domains of hyper-reality
> will
> be tangibly demonstrated in a series of evening performances.
>
> The organizers of the Digital Art Weeks ETH Zurich are seeking
> presentations,
> demonstrations and performances on all themes specific to performance
> using
> electronic media that explore a concept of the Performative Surround
> in terms
> of how computer-mediated communication and dialog takes place between
> performers
> and viewers and how it tends to aid in dissolving the divide between
> performer
> and viewer. Submissions of both theoretical and empirical studies are
> invited
> from the perspectives of the performing arts and computer science and
