SCANZ 2013 Hui-symposium second call for abstracts, due September 7th 2012
This is the second call for hui-symposium abstracts. From the first call we received proposals for presentations from the perspectives of Mātauranga Māori, art-science, culture and climate change, pre-Columbian sustainability, bio technology, creativity and the environment from the social perspective.
We are very interested in further proposals from tangata whenua, indigenous peoples, scientists, artists, thinkers and environmentalists. Our topic is important to this country, the planet and humanity and we all have a role to play in a positive future.
The hui-symposium takes place February 1st – 3rd at Ngamotu New Plymouth, Aotearoa New Zealand.
Professor Hideo Iwasaki runs the Laboratory for Molecular Cell Network & Biomedia Art at the Department of Electric Engineering and Bioscience of Waseda University in Japan.

And to join us on the weekend of February 1st – 3rd 2013 at a hui-symposium to share knowledge and build resources.

Downstream is a media art installation, which explores ways of representing the relationship between nature and culture. Employing poetic texts embedded into animated satellite […]
