In collaboration with our host, Columbia College Chicago, we are pleased to invite submissions for paper presentations, performances, workshops and more to the 8th International Conference on Movement and Computing (MOCO) which will be held 22nd-25th June in Chicago, IL.

 

MOCO is a conference aiming to better understand how bodily movement interacts with computational technology. This year’s theme is Artificial Embodiment: Windy Shifts. Wind chaotically rippling across the prairies of Illinois has a wildly different characteristic movement than the linear predictability of the Shift key on a computer keyboard.  Yet, both result in a transformation of the landscape, an opening of new possibilities.  Referencing the famed winds of the midwest where our conference event takes place alongside an oft-used keyboard affordance (through which many attendees may access the event), this theme highlights human physical intelligence and the artificial systems that attempt to measure and recreate it.  

 

We are curious about which aspects of the moving human can and cannot be measured, as well as those that can and cannot be represented in artificial systems.  For example, telepresence robots that attempt to give remote humans physical presence in work, social, or public physical spaces are a type of artificial embodiment that grapples with natural and artificial modalities of movement. These are just some examples of technologies that we may be shifting toward due to the prevailing winds of current events that necessitate interaction at a distance. We are excited to explore these concepts in person and online at Columbia College in Chicago this coming June.

WE LIVE WITHIN AN UNSTABLE LANDSCAPE

This is a social networking website connecting people concerned about innovation and experimentation on art, dance, embodiment, cognition, science, networks, post-humanism, media and the unstable landscape of contemporary culture and life.

We are in a transitional phase and refocusing the network with a broader interdisciplinary framework. It will reflect a contemporary  community interacting and embedded  unstablelandscape.

This network is maintained and administrated by Marlon Barrios Solano as an independent art/curatorial/social innovation project.
