CFP: The Synthetic Aesthetics of New Media Art

Type: Calls For Papers [View all]
Posted by: New York University
Deadline: Mon, October 1st, 2007

The New Media Caucus in Association with CAA
February 20–23, 2008; Dallas
Panel Chair: Carolyn Kane, New York University
Abstracts and bio due Oct 1, 2007.

Contrary to traditional aesthetic theories that argue for the primacy of the subjective or formal interpretations of artwork, the aesthetics of electronic media, like the logic of technical media itself, is thoroughly removed from anthropomorphic sensibility. One could say that electronic media aesthetics are marked by technical trauma.

What do theoreticians and practitioners address in New Media art, and why? Which artists and / or commercial work do you think best exemplifies these issues? Special attention will be given to those abstracts that are concerned with the use of color in New Media work.

Presenters can propose brief lectures; media or artist presentations of their own, or other artists’ work; discussions; or other acceptable suggestions.
