Digital Light: Technique, Technology, Creation

Went to the physio yesterday, and although I've pulled up a little sore this morning I'm still considering attending at least some the following symposium. In case anyone else from Melbourne wants to attend this free event here are the details:

Elizabeth Murdoch Theatre, The University of Melbourne, Parkville
Friday 18 March (2–7pm) & Saturday 19 March (10–6pm)

This interdisciplinary symposium invites leading international and Australian figures working with digital light-based technologies to consider the capacities and limitations of contemporary digital processes. How do contemporary digital media imitate, advance or retreat from the achievements of older techniques and devices? Why do accidental artifacts of specific media become desirable outcomes in others? What role do artists and artisans play in redefining technologies through technique? Artists, curators and technologists will explore these questions from diverse angles, each exploring the techniques and technologies used in depicting, recording and projecting digital light.

Confirmed speakers:
• Geoffrey Batchen (Art Historian, NZ)
• Victor Burgin (Artist, UK)
• Steve Dietz (Curator, US)
• Jon Ippolito (Artist/Curator, US)
• Stephen Jones (Artist/Historian, AUST)
• Alex Monteith (Artist, NZ)
• Christiane Paul (Curator, US)
• Jeffrey Shaw (Artist, HK)
• Alvy Ray Smith (Computer graphics pioneer, US)
• Van Sowerwine (Artist, AUST)
• Lynette Wallworth (Artist, AUST)
