Special Issue of “The Poster:” the visual rhetorics of command and control (Oct 2011)

Deadline for submissions: 14 Oct 2011

This call’s theme:
Visual rhetorics are by definition in the business of persuasion: in both private and public spheres, such rhetorics attempt to change the behaviours of both individuals and groups. From the “Stop” sign at the end of our street, through the visual and verbal warnings on packs of cigarettes, to the recruitment posters of our armed forces, common sense instruction blends into health-expert authority insistence and then into state invitations to die for one’s country. In this first special issue of The Poster, we invite contributions on the many and different ways in which visual rhetoric intends and is used to inform, instruct, persuade and control our lives.

Making visible the invisible: Data Visualisation in Art, Design and Science Collaborations (Mar 2011, Huddersfield UK)

A two-day conversational* conference on interdisciplinary collaboration in data visualisation
University of Huddersfield, UK, March 10th-11th 2011
1st Call for Abstracts, 300 word limit, Submission deadline: December 6th 2010

In recent years numerous visualisations involving scientific data and scientific themes have emerged from interdisciplinary collaborations between artists, scientists and designers. Works reach across diverse media, ranging from applied screen-based applications to experimental physical installations. While some are intended to inform by making the complex and abstract clear and visual, others focus on the aesthetic quality of the experience. What many of the works have in common is being the outcome of collaboration across disciplines.

This event seeks not only to contribute to the debate around data visualisation but also to a better understanding of what makes interdisciplinary collaborations successful. We wish to provide a platform for open dialogue and discussion across disciplinary cultures and seek a better understanding of the critical requirements for interdisciplinary collaboration. We ask what are the most fruitful conditions for interdisciplinary collaboration? How can trans-disciplinary understanding be best facilitated?

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture (Sep 2010)

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture aims to explore how the complexities of being in time find visual form. Crucial to this undertaking is accounting for how, from prehistory to the present, cultures around the world conceive of and construct their present and the concept of presentness visually. Through scholarly writings from a number of academic disciplines in the humanities, together with contributions from artists and filmmakers, Contemporaneity maps the diverse ways in which cultures use visual means to record, define, and interrogate their historical context and presence in time.
