A Normal Future – Interview with NORMALS

Normals is a collective whose work crosses a number of boundaries. Perhaps their work is a proposal that the boundaries we once found useful in defining creative practice don’t work as well in our connected/networked/hybrid cultures.

Call For Papers SECAC: Vision Machines and Pre-Cinematic Optical Devices: Panoramas, Stereoscopes and Places of Otherness

Vision Machines and Pre-Cinematic Optical Devices: Panoramas, Stereoscopes and Places of Otherness Since the 18th century, optical devices and immersive technologies have been used in the form of panoramas and later the stereoscope, in order to transport the viewer into foreign lands or historical times, often seen as places of otherness. Viewers experienced a form of virtual travel, through the act of seeing panorama in a public place or a stereoscope in their living room. Some argue that these devices contributed to a new kind of observer in the 1840s (Crary), or that they are responsible for the rupture of…

CFP, Conference Session: New Aesthetics and the Postdigital, Their Effect on Contemporary Art

CFP: New Aesthetics and the Postdigital, Their Effect on Contemporary Art.
