Dear Friends at CRUMB

I'm passing on this email to you, in case some of you may wish to respond to some of the themes of this event we're holding at Tate Modern.  

At this stage we just need a really brief biography and a very brief outline of an idea you may have for a presentation.

I'd be delighted to hear from some of you.  Please let me know if you need any more information.
Also, please pass this on to any colleagues who you think may be interested.

Best wishes


Honor


FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR CALL FOR PAPERS

user_mode 
= emotion + intuition in art + design

an international symposium and festival
9 - 11 May 2003
Tate Modern
London, UK

A collaboration between Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design <http://www.csm.linst.ac.uk/> and Tate Modern <http://www.tate.org.uk>  

user_mode is an international, multidisciplinary symposium looking at interactive art and design practices. It will examine one of the key concerns for many creative practitioners - engaging the emotions of the audience/user.  

Artists, designers and critics frequently refer to "emotional engagement". What is meant by this? Is it immersion, rapture, agency, reflection? This question is crucial to interactive art and design practice where the user's response is sensitive to context and can not only influence the form and content of the work but also, in some cases, the future direction of technological development. user_mode will aim to locate techniques, instruments, contexts and terms to provide clearer insight into this theme.  

user_mode will provide an opportunity to hear from internationally renowned artists, designers and theorists as well as emerging practitioners. It is intended that concerts, performances and drop-in studios featuring artists, designers, architects, researchers and technicians informally presenting works in progress will complement presentations and panel discussions.  

Key contributors include: Gary Hill (Artist), Sara Diamond (Director, Media and Visual Arts Banff, Canada), Stuart Jones (composer/performer/interactive sound artist based in the UK), Lev Manovich (New Media theorist), David Ross (Director of the Beacon project New York, and formerly Director of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and The Whitney Museum of American Art) and Tobi Schneidler (Architect, Interactive Institute, Stockholm) 

___user_mode : thematics

How do you engage and sustain the interest of the user/visitor/player in an interactive experience whether it be reflexive architecture, interactive film, art installation, responsive environment, computer games, performance, product, communication or experience design?  

Questions for discussion may include: does interactivity promise a more profound experience than more traditional responses to art and design? What does it add? How is it measured? Does interactive work offer more than conventional cinema, theatre, painting or architecture in emotional terms? Is there more sense of participation?  

user_mode will seek to identify models of emotional engagement, aiming to question, extend and rework the most topical of the categories outlined below: 

- Emotion as content or theme of the work
- Emotion as agency and control
- Emotion as subjective experience
- Emotion as a cognitive and physical process
- Emotion as an element of discovery learning in interactive exhibitions
- Emotion and navigation in architecture
- Emotion and narrative in film
- Emotion and gaming
- Emotion in sound composition and audio environments


___user_mode: submissions

We are now calling for papers from artists, designers, theorists, technologists, scientists, architects, musicians, philosophers and others interested in this field.

The call for papers is aimed at all disciplines that can contribute to this discussion. Fresh perspectives will be sought by bringing together different disciplines to share their views.

You are invited to submit a short proposal for a 30-minute visual/audio/verbal presentation in the conference or a performance or a studio demonstration. Your proposal should include the following
information:

1. Name
2. Location
3. Contact Details

5. 250 word proposal
6. Type of proposal (is it a paper, a studio demonstration or performance?)
7. 200 word biography
