NAISA is now inviting submissions for papers and performances:

Rooted in the earliest experiments with radio, Transmission Art has continued to flourish into the 21st Century with experiments using wireless communications technology over the past 100 years, including the exploration of a variety of mobile-based platforms and lesser-known forms of transmission, such as VLF. The terrain of transmission art is dynamic and fluid, always open to redefinition.

The TransX Transmission Art Symposium, part of the Deep Wireless Festival of Radio & Transmission Art, will focus on Transmission Art, with particular interest in contributions that summarize, examine or reframe traditions and histories of transmission art practices, technology, education and pedagogy. Additionally, we are very interested in presentations that go beyond the local contingent to give a sense of how new technologies of international transmission activity might be experienced. Proposed presentations and performances that combine the themes of Transmission Art and “Undo/Redo” are also especially welcome.

All symposium contributions will be webcast live, and text proceedings will be published after the symposium on the NAISA web-site. Please go to for specific guidelines on paper and performance submissions.

We look forward to seeing you, your colleagues, collaborators and students in Toronto in May!
