CONSCIOUSNESS REFRAMED
art and consciousness in the post-biological era. 2016

As new media art grows old, is a new art arising? How do competing theories of the origin and location of consciousness impact on art practice? Was the coupling of art and science a marriage of convenience or a matter of true love? Could a new spirituality cause the divorce? Is there a nonlinear online aesthetic? Do survivors of the digital art era have refugee status in the new world of technological transmodalities? Is analogue anxiety a symptom of digital depression? Where can we locate the technological sublime? If Additive Art is solidly object oriented, can 3D printing become pure process? Will post-personal art be a consequence of the postbiological? Will the autonomous robot develop an autonomous aesthetics?

These questions form the background to the conference of artists, scholars, scientists, and engineers that will constitute Consciousness Reframed 2016 Consciousness Reframed is a forum for transdisciplinary inquiry into art, science, technology, and consciousness, drawing upon the expertise and insights of artists, designers, architects, performers, musicians, writers, scientists, and scholars, from many countries.
