CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: NEW FORMS FESTIVAL 2004: NFF04 TECHNOGRAPHY
<http://www.newformsfestival.com/>

Deadline: May 14th, 2004

The New Forms Festival is an annual event highlighting emerging forms at the
junction of art, culture and technology. It includes performances, panel
discussions, workshops, and interactive exhibits on  contemporary Media Arts
issues. The NFF environment encourages new forms of Media Art  to be
created, experienced, and understood. NFF04 will be held in Vancouver, BC,
from  October 14 to 28, 2004. The theme is TECHNOGRAPHY: the inscription of
culture in technology.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY is a forum to explore and embody these inscriptions in
the form of artistic expression and  discourse.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY looks at the ways in which cultures inhabit and
transform media spaces and technologies.

NFF04:TECHNOGRAPHY will  bring together practitioners and theorists from
across grassroots, gallery academy and  academic contexts and provide a
platform for conversations among the diverse voices of  contemporary
digital regionalism.

NFF04: TECHNOGRAPHY programming incorporates the principles found within an
ecological model of the cultural  sphere: complexity, variety and balance.
Like nature, culture is also a changing phenomenon,  affected by the ways in
which technology inhabits the environment and relates to it.

Projects, presentations and performances
Proposals are invited for four areas of the festival: the Conference, the
Exhibition (digital art, performance, installation, immersive environments,
Net.Art), Performance Series (sound art, performance art, live film/AV) and
Late Night Events (music, visuals, post-digital, laptop, group performance,
screenings). 

Conference 
The NFF04 Conference, Old And New Forms , negotiates new global parameters
for contemporary media culture, as it charts a post-traditional
Œtechnography¹ of world Media Arts. The post-traditional is what remains of
modernism and postmodernism when modernization is abandoned as an unfinished
and unachievable project. While the post-traditional view is clearly
meaningful in the post-colonial and developing spheres, Old And New Forms
posits that it is equally germane to the global post-industrial  scenario as
a whole. 

Gallery Exhibition/ Performance Events
This year the Exhibition (Gallery and Net Art), Performance Series, and Late
Night Events will present a range of works that embody and interpret the
theme of TECHNOGRAPHY as defined above.

Gallery Exhibition

First  Nations Exhibit

First Nation¹s  artists are exploring new disciplines, utilizing new media
and digital  technologies as a medium for an organic concept, the Native
experience.  By displaying the constructs through technical methods, and
combining  those concepts that make up traditional and current First
Nation¹s  societies, contemporary artists are determining how First Nation's
have  adapted new methodologies to traditional knowledge. A few such ideas
that  are being explored through new media are the importance of community,
supporting relations, the necessary medicines that heal, the energies
attributed to organisms in the living, natural world, and the oral or
performative traditions that First Nations people practice.

Curator :  Daina Warren


Media  Installation

-  may be modified -

In the interactive  gallery, artists¹ work will manifest the theme of
TECHNOGRAPHY through  multiple mediums, and modes of expression
(installation, net art, games,  digital print etc). Each work will explore a
distinct aspect of our current    technology-based culture and society,
exposing the similarities and differences  that exist between media artists
in different areas of the world and those  here in Canada. Each work will
demonstrate how geography, ethnography,  technology, tradition and culture
all play into a greater forum on new  forms of art and media today. Some
artists may explore these concepts  in collaborative and improvisational or
Œlive¹ artworks within   the gallery environment.

Works may  utilize a variety of expression such as: sound art; gaming art;
animation;  networked performance; artificial reality; telematics;
performance or  demonstration; interactive video; image manipulation and
projection; devices  such as sensors, handheld or wearable devices, sound as
well as the Internet,  to engage the viewer and portray the artists¹ vision.
All installation  artworks will have a process-oriented element requiring
the pieces to  evolve and constantly transform, mutate and diversify. Each
installation  will transform the space into a labyrinth of smaller but
powerful immersive  and intimate spaces, allowing dynamic interaction
between visitors and  the technological environments they enter.

Many artists may borrow conceptually and technically from and utilize  live
performance, generative or responsive digital or cinematic images,  as well
as mundane technologies such as surveillance cameras, wireless  and other
communication or business technologies. This cross-platform,
cross-pollination serve to repurpose and reflect back to the viewer the
more pervasive and sometimes sinister aspects of our modern daily
experience. 

Curators :  Aleksandra Dulic, Camille Baker and Kenneth Newby.


Video Paintings 

Video Paintings are   the cultural revolution of the traditional painting.
This emergent form  is a vehicle where older media forms (photography,
painting, cinema, television)  will be remediated, blended, and transformed.
Video Paintings are video          works presented on flatscreen panels and
wall-mounted in the same manner  as traditional paintings. Content in this
form is designed to work at  all times - either as a highly aware foreground
experience, or as passive background. It can act as the focus of attention,
or it can be submerged  within the surrounding environment. It is, at its
core, an exercise in          ambient video.

Curators :  NomIg. & Jim Bizzocchi

Net  Art Exhibit : Self  and Society of Tomorrow

Net art works  will challenge the users to think about the state of our
world, how technology  is reconfiguring our concepts of self within society,
language, heritage,  healthcare, politics, the economy, the human body and
art practice, thus,  that its powerful effects on us all and our future
selves. This exhibit  will demonstrate how self Œimage¹ relates to social
evolution          and transforming the physical and conceptual interaction
users have with  technology and how it affects them in their daily lives,
within their  community.

Artists¹  work will manifest the theme through multiple mediums, and modes
of expression,  with each work exploring a distinct aspect of the tech-based
culture,  with emphasis on one's own evolving identity and future self.

The works  will highlight the change individuals and society are currently
facing,  emphasizing the role that media artists play help usher in positive
change  instead of the potential negative, exploring how artists can and do
subvert  and challenge this transformation.

This show  will also expose the similarities and differences that exist
between media  artists in different areas of the world and how geography,
ethnography,  technology, tradition and culture all play into a greater
discourse on  art and media today.

Curator :  Camille Baker


Performance Events

Audiovisual  Performance

Curators :  NomIg. 

This year,  the audiovisual evening at NFF 2004 sets out to challenge the
definition  of ³Music². Is Music necessarily sound or is it a concept  that
encompasses phenomena, such as rhythm and harmony, in many mediums?  We will
explore this idea through approaches to a/v art where the audio  and video
components of the music are composed and performed together;          with
an awareness of each other¹s inherent musicality. Our mandate  requires that
neither the audio nor the video serve the role of accompaniment,  but that
they work together to form a synergy of audiovisual music. The  sound and
video are perceived as a single, cohesive thought .

DATA::   dance and technology art

Curators: Aleksandra Dulic and Camille  Baker

This event  presents works by movement artists who integrate new media and
information  technology into their live performances. A full range of
approaches is  presented from dance that uses technology to enhance or
extend live performance,  such as performances within computer controlled
electronic stage with  an interactive audio/visual media, computerized
scenographic and lighting  design, to the use of technology in choreography,
such as virtual and          telematic performance, performer controlled
stage environments, and holographic  actors/ dancers.

The work  featured will expose how media is represented within live
performance,  and will engage with critical aspects of the relationship
between nature,  humans and machines as well as ecology, society and
technology. Pieces  will consider and reflect upon the impact of technology
on society is  examined from different cultural perspectives.

Blending  choreography with media in a electronic stage context expands the
dancer's  body and how they move through live and interactive media,
creating engaging,  relevant and dynamic works.


Sound Art and Electronic Music

-  details coming soon -

Curators :  Kenneth Newby and DB Boyko


Performance  Art :: Technoscape/ists
Curator :  Victoria Singh

For this  event, artists' work will involve the live presence of their
person/s  in the performance space. The work will be the direct or indirect
manipulation  of technology (old or new) in a process orientated and
performative manner.  The concept and aesthetic of performances will insert/
assert subversive,  experimental and fresh perpectives into the cultural
sphere and can involve  multi-disciplined presentations which may include
elements that are not  necessarily technological in a mechanical sense; for
example performed  actions and or props that critique technology.

The title  for this event "Technoscape/ists" suggests artists who explore
the effects of technology in shaping modern day consciousness, environment,
lifestyles and identity.
