Transmission Art Symposium call for papers, deadline March 16

Hey folks. See below for info on the 2012 Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art.


Trans-X Symposium Call for Papers deadline March 16, 2012

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is pleased to announce the Trans-X,
a symposium about Transmission Art May 25-27, 2012

We are now inviting proposals for papers.

Rooted in the earliest experiments with radio, Transmission Art has
continued to flourish with experiments with wireless communications
technology over the past 100 years. The 21st Century is not excluded
from this experimentation as artists have ventured into exploring a
variety of mobile-based platforms and more lesser known forms of
transmission such as VLF. The terrain of transmission art is dynamic
and fluid, always open to redefinition.

The Trans-X symposium, part of the Deep Wireless Festival of Radio &
Transmission Art, will focus on transmission art, with particular
interest in paper contributions that summarize, examine or reframe
traditions and histories of transmission art practices, technology,
education and pedagogy. Additionally, we are very interested in paper
presentations that go beyond the local contingent to give a sense of
what new technologies of international transmission activity might
sound like.

Proposals related to any aspect of transmission art practice are
welcome. Submit a 500-1000 word abstract, and a biography of 250 words
or less, to the symposium's Review Committee at:

All symposium contributions will be webcast live, and text proceedings
will be published on-line on the NAISA web-site.
