Deadline: May 14th, 2004

The New Forms Festival is an annual event highlighting emerging forms at the
junction of art, culture and technology. It includes performances,
panel discussions, workshops, and interactive exhibits on contemporary
Media Arts issues. The NFF environment encourages new forms of Media Art to
be created, experienced, and understood. NFF04 will be held in Vancouver,
BC, from October 14 to 28, 2004. The theme is TECHNOGRAPHY: the inscription
of culture in technology.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY is a forum to explore and embody these inscriptions in
the form of artistic expression and discourse.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY looks at the ways in which cultures inhabit and
transform media spaces and technologies.

NFF04:TECHNOGRAPHY will bring together practitioners and theorists from
across grassroots, gallery academy and academic contexts and
provide a platform for conversations among the diverse voices of
contemporary digital regionalism.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY programming incorporates the principles found within an
ecological model of the cultural sphere: complexity, variety and
balance. Like nature, culture is also a changing phenomenon, affected by
the ways in which technology inhabits the environment and relates to it.

Exhibition (digital art, performance, installation, immersive environments,
