Subtle Technologies 2007

in situ
art body medicine

May 24th - May 27th 2007
Toronto, Canada

Subtle Technologies is a four-day multidisciplinary Festival exploring
complex and subtle relationships between art and science. The annual
international event combines symposia, exhibitions, workshops and
performances that juxtapose cutting-edge artistic projects and
scientific exploration.

For the 10th Annual Festival, Subtle Technologies invites
practitioners of arts, sciences and medicines, and those who study
their context, historians, ethicists, and other critical thinkers to
contemplate how these disciplines can work together and reshape
perspectives on the body.

As scientific and technological breakthroughs prominently occupy our
culture, we ask where the boundaries are. We are interested in
investigating how we relate bodies in situ: as parts, as a whole, as
systems; how we identify, map, modify, protect, violate, and heal.

We invite a wide interpretation of bodies including the molecular,
physical, cultural, economic, legal, political, energetic, electrical
and spiritual.

A range of approaches are welcome, including interdisciplinary work,
specialized presentation proposals that focus on a single topic in
depth, and general discussions that draw upon multiple topics. We
welcome a diversity of presentation formats, including those
practitioners who may not emphasize the use of science and technology.

Presentation and Publication
Selected proposals will be invited to present either an illustrated
talk followed by questions and discussion with the audience, or to
submit a poster for exhibition at the Symposium. Presenters will be
published in an illustrated book of proceedings that accompanies the
event. Symposium presentations are typically 30 to 50 minutes in
length including time for question and answers from the audience. The
presentation portion of our festival takes place at Innis Town Hall.
This venue is well equipped with state of the art audiovisual
equipment.

How to Apply
Details are available on the online submissions form
http://www.subtletechnologies.com/2007/

Deadline for Proposals
January 10, 2007

Selection Process
Submissions will be judged by a panel of curators that include science
and art specialists drawn from practicing and academic backgrounds.
Selections will be judged for quality and relevance to the theme.
Selection will occur late January and results will be communicated by
mid February 2007. Selected presentations will be asked for images and
text mid March 2007 for publication.

Additional Detail
Symposium presentations are typically 30 to 50 minutes in length
including time for question and answers from the audience.
Presentations should be designed for a public audience with varied
interests. We encourage physical demonstrations and can accommodate a
wide variety of formats. Our venue, Innis Town Hall is well equipped
with state of the art audiovisual equipment.

Summaries of past presentations are archived on our website. We
encourage those interested in submitting a proposal to acquaint
themselves with our history of programming.
