ART EXHIBITION THEMES AND TOPICS
Calling artists-performers-makers-scientists to join us for HAPPENING : EVERYDAY in/on/around the Creativity and Cognition conference taking place at the Berkeley Art Museum, USA. Proposals should consider the main conference theme “Everyday Creativity” and the suggested topics given below. We are particularly interested in mobile, wearable, stand-alone and nomadic works which explore the invisible, unexpected and unanticipated in the everyday. Scientists working in the arts are particularly welcome. We will consider 2-page proposals for:
* Live Performances
* Digital Live Art
* Interactive Installations
* Outdoor Projections
* DJ and VJ sets
Topics include but are not limited to:
* Wearable, fashionable, mobile and nomadic
* Scientists as everyday artists
* Social media and enriching the collaborative experience
* Visualising the (in)tangible and (in)visible in the everyday
* Temporary, spontaneous and fleeting encounters in the everyday
* Mediating the mundane
* DIY, making and creative invention
* AI and the intelligent community
* Movement, body and harnessing everyday human motion
* Festival and the everyday
Jane Prophet, a renowned British visual artist, uses traditional and new media and materials to produce surprising and beautiful objects. Site-specific installations include Conductor, a flooded power station lit with 120 electro luminescent cables. Decoy and The Landscape Room combine images of real and simulated landscapes, and in Model Landscapes uses rapid prototyping to make miniature trees from mathematical data. Prophet is the driving force in a number of internationally acclaimed projects that break new ground in art, technology and science. Her collaborations with stem cell researchers, mathematicians and heart surgeons radically re-envisage the human body. In 2005 she won a National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts Fellowship to develop interdisciplinary artworks like Net Work (comprising hundreds of illuminated buoys) and Big Plastic Tree (an artwork built by robots). She is a Professor of Interdisciplinary Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London.
