Codes & Modes: ReFraming Reality, Virtuality & Non-Fiction Media

Amidst the flurry of techno-utopian industry hype surrounding Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning, not enough attention has been paid to long-term socio-cultural or neurobiologial impacts of these new technologies. How can theorists, activists and artists develop a useful framework to explore the complex implications of using these technologies? This version of the Codes & Modes Symposium aims to create an intervention into the uncritical excitement about emerging technologies to establish a space for conversations that are not being had. We are looking for presentations on new forms of nonfiction media that feature critical thinking on new technology, aesthetics, activism, practices, platforms and outreach.Topics may include but are not limited to: sensory input, VR, AI, machine learning, the role of the body, methods for engaging subjects, AR, immersion, MR, user interfaces, games, creative code, representations of nature, interactive documentary, transmedia, technology and pedagogy, collaborative environments, biomedia, social media platforms, or experiential design.
