Media Architecture Biennale 2012
Dates: 15-17 November 2012
Building on the successful event in Vienna 2010, The Media Architecture Biennale 2012 brings together artists, academia and industry in the continued exploration of the meeting between architecture and digital media. With public exhibitions, a conference and a series of workshops, the biennale offers many ways to participate and get involved.
The 2012 biennale will extend the existing format with an academic conference track, new exhibition, awards and industry sessions, as well as a full day of workshops.
The exhibition presents state-of-the-art media architecture in a collaboration between artists, practitioners and industry, both in-situ and in documented forms.
At the conference “participation” will be explored as a core value of media architecture (other topics are welcome as well!). The conference invites both academic and industry presentations. The orgnizers are currently seeking a publishing agreement with ACM for the academic proceedings.
The workshops offer an intimate forum to discuss or even work on a specific topic or technology with your peers.
The Biennale itself is also organized in the spirit of participation thus dialog and exchanges between artists, researchers and industry are invited and supported . The design of media architecture invites, shapes and creates encounters between people and the built environment, and digital media open up rich opportunities for dialog and engaging experiences. As an emerging field, many perspectives are still coming together, and the challenges are as abundant as the opportunities. Public space and urban environments are increasingly shaped by elements of media architecture.
The vision of the Media Architecture Biennale is to provide an excellent forum for awareness, discussion and solutions; to bring together the best minds and organizations; and to present to the each other and the world the state-of-the-art of media architecture.
In the past few years, there has been a surge in the number of publications on media architecture, both in the interaction design/HCI community (e.g. at CHI, DIS and TEI, and the regional OzCHI and NordiCHI conferences) and in architecture and design journals and literature. Therefore, the Biennale organizers invite papers that present and discuss media architecture both on a practical and theoretical level to further develop our understanding of he field through studies of cases, design approaches, best practices from industry, and theoretical perspectives.
Expired: Deadline for papers: 20 June 2012
The exhibited projects are related to the following categories:
Spatial Media Art
Future Trends and Prototypes
If you want to present your work at the exhibition, or to sponsor an installation, get in touch with the exhibition chairs, Gernot Tscherteu and Morten Lervig, at email@example.com .
Participants will spend one day or half a day with experts from the field and express their experiences through structured and unstructured interactions. There will be the opportunity for research students to present their work and to receive feedback from experts in the field as part of the workshops.
If you are interested to host a workshop as part of the Media Architecture Biennale please contact the workshop chairs via firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience, but no later than 20 May 2012. We welcome workshops on academic research and industry themes.
Workshops will take place in various places in Aarhus on 15 November 2012.
First of all, the biennale is an exceptional place to show your products, services and competences for a specialized and attentive audience. The dedicated industry session of the conference is a forum for talks. As part of the exhibition, there is a demo space and showroom for prototypes and posters. We have reserved several workshop slots for industry topics.
Sponsorship is another way to put your mark on the biennale. With Gold, Silver and Bronze packages, there is one for every level of engagement. We can also tailor a special package for your company.
Get in touch with the industry chairs, Hank Haeusler and Martin Brynskov, at email@example.com , for more information on industry opportunities.
