> Call for Papers, Performances and Creative Works
> University of Victoria, BC, Canada
> September 8th-11th, 2005
> Submissions for papers and proposals for performances, installations and
> other creative works are now being accepted for the COLLISION Symposium to
> be held at the University of Victoria, BC, Canada from September 8-11, 2005.
> It is sometimes assumed that Interarts and Interdisciplinary creation
> involves a seamless integration [NC1] <> of two or more distinct artistic
> practices, and ideally that these practices will easily fuse into a work
> that can be viewed as an integrated whole. However, as artists who attempt
> this fusion find, it is often far from easy to integrate disparate media.
> For the Collisions Symposium we seek presentations and artistic works that
> examine these difficulties, conflicts, rough seams, uneven mixtures, and the
> debris and detritus resulting from artistic collisions, as well as
> presentations that question how artists approach these acts of
> integration/disintegration.
> We are seeking proposals for conference-length papers and performances that
> address the issues of Interarts creation/collaboration as a collision
> between artistic elements and forms. For this symposium we seek to create an
> atmosphere of interaction between academic discussion and artistic
> presentation. Consequently, we also encourage presentations that fall
> between the standard academic paper format, including discussions your
> interarts/interdisciplinary practice, lecture-performances, and creative
> works that engage critical interaction. We welcome papers that examine
> theoretical concepts and/or the development of artistic processes, as well
> as performances and creative works from within the following areas:
