EXTENDED CFP: Code - A Media, Games & Art Conference
full name / name of organization:
Swinburne University of Technology
EXTENDED Call for Papers and Creative Works ***ABSTRACTS DUE FRIDAY 22 JUNE 2012***
CODE - A Media, Games & Art Conference
Due to a number of requests we've decided to EXTEND THE DEADLINE for CODE. We're also delighted to announce two Masterclasses are now confirmed for the event:
'Media Archaeology Masterclass' with Jussi Parikka
More details on these events will be posted to the website: http://code2012.wikidot.com
In the meantime, get submitting if you haven't already!
Code is the invisible force at the heart of contemporary media and games, routinely obscured by the gadget fetish of breathless tech marketing and scholarly focus on more visible social and technical interfaces. With the recent material turn in media studies and the refinement of new approaches including software studies and platform politics, which emphasise interrogating the formal characteristics and underlying technical architecture of contemporary media, the time has come to bring code out into the open.
The conference theme is also an opportunity to reflect on how, as academics and creative practitioners, we often participate in but can also challenge the disciplinary and institutional codes that can arbitrarily separate these domains. CODE will be a transdisciplinary event that brings media studies, media arts and games studies into dialogue through individual papers, combined panels, master classes and an included exhibition.
- Code and the in/visible
:: For further discussion, please view the conference website: http://code2012.wikidot.com
The CODE conference will include a thematic exhibition. We are seeking submissions of screen-based works, pervasive games, and locative media projects that respond to the conference themes. Projected and performance works will also be considered.
- Panel submissions: panel submission should include three/four individual abstracts of 300 words, a panel title, and a 200 words rationale for the panel as a whole.
- Artists should submit a 250 word outline of the proposed creative work including links to supporting documentation (10 stills or up to 3 minutes of video).
***All submissions are now due Friday 22 June and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org ***
Please include your name, affiliation, contact details, and a brief bio.
A special journal issue or edited collection on the conference theme is planned.
