"Call for Artists: Subtle Technologies 2007 - in situ - art, body, medicine"
2006-12-04 until 2007-01-03
Subtle Technologies, University of Toronto
Toronto, ON, CA Canada

Subtle Technologies 2007 - in situ - art . body . medicine will be held May 24th May 27th 2007 at the University of Toronto,in Toronto Canada. The submission deadline is January 3, 2007. Subtle Technologies is a four-day multidisciplinary Festival exploring complex and subtle relationships between art and science. The annual international event combines symposia, exhibitions, workshops and performances that juxtapose cutting-edge artistic projects and scientific exploration.

For the 10th Annual Festival, Subtle Technologies invites practitioners of arts, sciences and medicines, and those who study their context, historians, ethicists, and other critical thinkers to contemplate how these disciplines can work together and reshape perspectives on the body.

As scientific and technological breakthroughs prominently occupy our culture, we ask where the boundaries are. We are interested in investigating how we relate bodies in situ: as parts, as a whole, as systems; how we identify, map, modify, protect, violate, and heal.

We invite a wide interpretation of bodies including the molecular, physical, cultural, economic, legal, political, energetic, electrical and spiritual.

A range of approaches are welcome, including interdisciplinary work, specialized presentation proposals that focus on a single topic in depth, and general discussions that draw upon multiple topics. We welcome a diversity of presentation formats, including those practitioners who may not emphasize the use of science and technology.

Proposals for the following will be considered: workshops, performances, poster sessions, and symposium presentations.
