Final Call for Papers / Designs for the 2014 Fashion And Communication SYMPOSIUM May 2-3, 2014, St. Paul, Minnesota

Fashion is change and because it is change, fashion impacts nearly every aspect of our lives from the language we speak, the furniture we use, the homes we live in, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear, and the food we eat. Fashion also reflects social consensus and to achieve consensus we must have communication. Thus, for  our third symposium we focus on relationships between fashion and communication. We are interested in providing opportunities to share research findings, innovative teaching strategies, and designs that explore and investigate issues related to communication and fashion.

The symposium has an inclusive definition of the term “fashion”. While fashion is often understood to center on apparel choices, fashion can be recognized as the current style or way of behaving in any field. Thus, proposals are welcome from divergent fields such as architecture, anthropology, cultural studies, history, interior design, graphic design, psychology, sociology, and women’s studies among others.

xCoAx 2014: 2nd International Conference on Computation, Communication, Aesthetics and X (June 2014, Porto Portugal)

Dates: 26-27 June 2014
Location: Porto, Portugal
Website: http://xcoax.org/

The development of computational tools and media has been radically transforming the landscape for the practice of the arts, of design and of numerous cultural manifestations. Recognizing this, xCoAx is designed as a multi-disciplinary enquiry on arts, computers, computation, communication and the elusive x factor that connects them all.xCoAx is a forum for the exchange of ideas and the discovery of new and valuable synergies. It is an event exploring the frontiers of digital arts with the participation of a diverse confluence of computer scientists, media practitioners and theoreticians, with a focus on the relations between what can and cannot be computed, what can and cannot be communicated, what is beautiful and how humans and computational systems intersect in the development of new directions in aesthetics.

RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM: DESIGNING CRITICAL MESSAGES Collaboration-Communication-Education-Sustainability

Research symposium-Designing Critical Messages

MONDAY 24 JUNE 2013 —10.30AM
PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY
Lec­ture Theatre 1
Roland Lev­in­sky
Drakes Cir­cus Plymouth

This is a unique free event.
A day of dis­cus­sion about pro­act­ive, react­ive, reflect­ive design meth­ods and practices.

Dif­fer­ent types of research are fun­da­mental to design.
New forms of com­mon empathy help us cre­ate a plat­form to ques­tion and act on the chal­lenges we face in the future. When deployed wisely design and archi­tec­ture can bring us pleas­ure, choice, strength, decency and much more, but if abused, the out­come can be waste­ful, con­fus­ing, humi­li­at­ing and dangerous.

None of us can avoid being affected by design, whether or not we wish to. It is so ubi­quit­ous that it determ­ines how we feel and what we do, often without our noticing.

Our world is chan­ging and how we edu­cate for that world is chan­ging too, this day event will weave some threads of how we might tackle, under­stand and reflect on these changes.

The development of computational tools and media has been radically transforming the landscape for the practice of design, the arts and numerous cultural manifestations.
