The Third Transdisciplinary Imaging Conference at the intersections of art, science and culture will present papers that explore the theme of the cloud and molecular aesthetics. Clouding occurs when information becomes veiled, foggy, fuzzy, obscure or secretive, or when it condenses, blooms and accretes into atmospheres of chaotic turbulence and pressure vectors, into tidal flows and storms. The cloud also is a new formation of data as a global and seemingly immaterial distribution of storage and means of retrieval. This data cloud exists everywhere and yet is nowhere in particular.
The aim of the conference is to bring together artists, theorists , scholars, scientists, historians and curators.
The conference speakers will present papers that respond to the themes of the cloud and molecular aesthetics in areas related to: Media Arts, Painting, Drawing, Curating Installation, Film, Video, Photography, Computer Visualization, Real-time Imaging, Intelligent Systems and Image Science.
