Interactive Epistemology, Listening, and Ecomedia


What are the interactive film and media epistemological contributions to contemporary art and media fields? How do/might interactive technologies, practices, experiences invite, or indeed, demand revised modes of listening? How might taking seriously the work of listening (as a form of attending to) open onto more generous ways of knowing, practicing, and being in an era of socio-ecological crisis?

The 4th Interactive Film and Media International Conference invites academics (faculty, researchers, and Ph.D. students) and practitioners (filmmakers, artists, VR and game designers, and media producers) to explore the definitions, terms, and practices to frame the conditions of interaction and interactivity in three strands: epistemology, listening, and ecomedia.
