IONION CENTER FOR THE ARTS AND CULTURE
THE ISLAND OF KEFALONIA – GREECE
APRIL 3O – MAY 2, 2012
TECHNOETIC TELOS: ART, MYTH AND MEDIA
“Convened in Greece, the conference takes its theme from the conjunction of telos and tele, (τέλος and τῆλε), in the purposes and processes of art in the post-digital culture. At the centre of these considerations is Mind, and the rich variability of consciousness and reality, to which technoetic systems and syncretic creativity aspire. Papers and projects are welcomed that address these issues, and which seek insights into the function of metaphor and myth in the emergent complexity of the post-biological era.”
In cooperation with the Planetary Collegium, at the University of Plymouth, England, ICAC – Ionion Center for the Arts and Culture is hosting Consciousness Reframed International Research Conference series, with the title of ‘TECHNOETIC TELOS: Art, Myth and Media‘.
The Consciousness Reframed conference series was founded by Roy Ascott at the University of Wales in 1997. Consciousness Reframed is a forum for trans-disciplinary inquiry into art, science, technology, design and consciousness, drawing upon the expertise and insights of artists, designers, architects, performers, musicians, writers, scientists, and scholars, usually from at least 20 countries.
As part of the conference a call for papers is now open for 25-30 speakers, in addition to speakers involved in the Planetary Collegium doctoral research programme at CAiiA – Centre for Advanced Inquiry in the Interactive Arts.
