LEA rekindled 1


Deadline:
Sat Dec 31, 2011 00:00

Dear All,

Leonardo Electronic Almanac has inherited a large archive of papers,
articles and information.

This material was held in the archive as historical documentation and
as part of the revamp of LEA we have decided to revisit this history
and compare it with contemporary developments.

LEA rekindled 1 is the first historical comparative issue of the
Leonardo Electronic Almanac on the history and contemporary
developments at the intersection of art, science and technology. For
this first issue of LEA rekindled, our editorial intention is to
re-open a dialogue with those who participated and contributed towards
building the history of contemporary art interactions with science and
technology as well as with the new generations of artists, critical
commentators, scientists and technology experts. You can find out more
information on: http://ow.ly/3pA9D

We are asking to the community at large to consider LEA rekindled not
only as an academic publication outlet but also as a repository for
images and documentation (photographic, audio and video). If you have
images from some of the art, science and technology events of the past
20 years that you would like to contribute for publication, please do
get in touch with LEA staff by sending an email to:
info@leoalmanac.org with the subject ‘LEA rekindled 1’.

We look forward to the opportunity of working with you in
re-contextualizing, publishing and archiving these images, artworks
and documentation in stable formats.

LEA is also delighted to announce that for the rekindled issues the
Senior Editorial and Curatorial team is composed of: Lanfranco Aceti,
Paul Brown, Beryl Graham, Craig Harris, Errki Huhtamo, Stephen Jones,
Terrence Masson, Frieder Nake, Christiane Paul and Bruce Wands.

ISEA2011 ISTANBUL CALL FOR PAPERS, PANELS, WORKSHOPS AND ARTWORKS

ISEA2011 Istanbul is the international festival of new media, electronic and digital arts. The 17th International Symposium on Electronic Art, a leading world conference and exhibition event for art, media and technology, is scheduled for September 14 to 21, 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey. The ISEA2011 Istanbul exhibition will coincide with the Istanbul Biennial and will provide a fantastic opportunity to showcase contemporary new media arts.

We invite proposals for panels, artworks, papers and workshops from artists, scientists and academics interested in how the digital and electronic media are re-shaping contemporary society and behaviors.

ISEA2011 Istanbul will be open to proposals encompassing a large range of topics under the general theme of interdisciplinarity at the intersection of Art, Science and Technology.

It is our intention to appeal to the hard sciences and the humanities as well as the art community.

For this reason ISEA2011 Istanbul will host a large variety of thematic strands ranging from digital art to curatorial studies, from electronic media to digital architecture, from the intersection of art, science and technology to the concept of the digital city, from digital humanities to social media, from nanotechnology and art to urban ecologies, from transculturalism to mobile art, and more.
