Cybernetics: Art, Design, Mathematics - A Meta-Disciplinary Conversation
Friday, July 30 - Monday, August 2, 2010
Early bird registration still available!
The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York is pleased to announce Cybernetics: Art, Design, Mathematics - A Meta-Disciplinary Conversation (C:ADM2010), an international and inter-disciplinary conference co-sponsored with the American Society of Cybernetics and the School of Architecture at Rensselaer.
C:ADM2010 brings together practitioners and theorists from four disciplines in an extended conversation in order to explore questions that are common to all of them. The conference involves a balanced mix of individuals from art, cybernetics, design and mathematics that have, until now, not assembled simultaneously and purposefully. Here the effort is not to document contemporary development within these fields, that is, to share those things already known, but to generate the interaction that leads to new ideas, discoveries and partnerships. This novel approach distinguishes this conference from those with a more typical disciplinary focus and traditional format.
Each of the four disciplines represented at the conference share an interest in certain questions that will be topics for discussion. These include, the nature of transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary work, ways to crossover between discplines, the concepts of metaphor, aesthetics, process in each of these fields, and the relationship between the actual and the abstract.
