Biome Symposium 2012 - Call for Papers

31 May 2012

Biome, a cluster of researchers, practitioners and artists, considers the systems that exist in natural environments or in biological principles and methods. The symposium unearths these systems across the fields of biology, mathematics, music, behavioural studies, engineering, interaction design and architecture.

Biome has opened a call for papers to the Biome Symposium 2012. Details are available on the Biome homepage.

Biome is launching this year with the Digital Interdisciplinations Exhibition; in the Faculty's own Tin Sheds Gallery.

The exhibition's tagline, 'Prototypes: Prosthetics, Parasites', asks what form our relationship with technology takes today. It is a digital exhibition that is borne of human concerns and peculiarities: curiosity, memory, imagination and desire.

The exhibition features a range of works that pursue speculative ideas and probes at the boundaries of art, architecture and interactive media as both disparate and co-constituted practices.

Curated by Dagmar Reinhardt, Martin Tomitsch and Marjo Niemelä, Digital Interdisciplinations is sure to excite, surprise and challenge our accepted and developing relationships with technology.
