Digital Art Weeks - ETH Zurich -

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 impulses in technology and
scientists aware of the possibilities of the application of technology
in the arts.

[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

media in articulating the performer's presence through the
possibilities of the multi-sensuality of electronic media.

presentations, demonstrations and performances on all themes specific
to performance using electronic media that explore a concept of the
Performative Surround. Submissions of both theoretical and empirical
studies are invited from the perspectives of the performing arts and
