New Forms partners with ISEA to bring international symposium to Vancouver

ISEA2015’s theme of DISRUPTION invites a conversation about the aesthetics of change, renewal, efficiencies and game-changing paradigms. We look to raw bursts of energy, Davids and Goliaths, reconciliation, error, and destructive and creative force of the new. Disruption contains both blue sky and black smoke. When we speak of radical emergence we must also address things left behind. Disruption is both incremental and monumental. Anachronisms; earlier versions. The moments of peace and crisis: the state of things now and a moment ago; the proud Luddites and the insecurity of change; the unstoppable giants, now only shells.

Hosted by the SFU Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology and the SFU School of Interactive Arts and Technology.
