[UPDATE] 26th Annual GAFIS Symposium at UW-Madison: (Dis)illusion, April 12th-13th 2013

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 - 12:20pm
GAFIS (Graduate Association of French & Italian Students), University of Wisconsin-Madison

Illusion is commonly defined as a false idea or belief, often the product of misperception or deception, intentional or otherwise. Its etymological basis in the Latin verb illudere reveals an element of mockery that is evidently lost in the modern connotation of illusion and yet remains, arguably, in that intriguing phase of disillusion that often follows it. How does one distinguish illusion from reality? How do our evolving perceptions of the world around us affect our understanding of self and the human condition? Is disillusion a necessary evil, or an essential part of this understanding as it leads to new possibilities for development and discovery?

Immaterial Materialities: Materiality and Interactivity in Art and Architecture

Materiality has recently claimed centre stage in architectural discourse and practice, yet its critical meaning is ever receding. Tropes like material honesty, digital materiality, material responsiveness and dematerialisation mark out an interdisciplinary field where scientific fact and artistic experimentation interact, and where what in fact constitutes materiality and immateriality is constantly re-imagined.

Many writers and artists have exposed the benefits and perils of technology.
