Call for Works: Design & Cinema Conference
CALL FOR WORKS: 3rd INTERNATIONAL DESIGN & CINEMA CONFERENCE -
19-22 NOVEMBER (INTERNATIONAL)
The 3rd International Design & Cinema Conference, hosted by the Faculty
of Architecture at the Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey,
will be held from the 19-22 November 2008. While the submission deadline
for papers has past there is a call for works. The Call for Works
submission deadline is 30 June.
The theme for this years conference is design-en-scène
[di-\'zIn-an-sen]: 1.designing into the scene. 2. Everything
designed that appears before the camera and its arrangement sets,
props, costumes, and lighting. 3. Design and Cinema Conference.
EXHIBITION OF WORKS
Since both design and cinema disciplines have physical outcomes, Design
Cinema 2008 would like to bring practices, researches and creative
outputs together under the \'works exhibition\' and create a rich and
provoking platform during the conference. We are open to all artists,
designers, scientists, professionals, amateurs and students around the
world working in various categories to share their works with us.
Critical and subversive works/interventions are welcomed. Buildings,
environments, products, film, television, computers, costume, games,
sound, all are expected to act as
agents of discussion.
The moving image has become a powerful medium for the representation of
designed worlds and revolutionized the abstraction of that which is
designed. While designers have become more open to the interests of
cinema, cinema is expansively engaged with issues of design. The aim of
the conference is theorizing and rhetorizing the interpretation and
production of those environments assumed to exist as real, hyper-real
and/or virtual, embracing all hybrid forms.
Design Cinema 2008 offers to participants various categories for
submitting their works. This enables the jury to make comparisons when
evaluating the wide range of proposals submitted to the conference.
Categories are as follows (but not limited to):
Share your Creativity
Artworks, creative and artistic projects, applications, performances,
Share your Production
Documentation of any kind that belongs to categories of artistic
productions, sets, props, costumes, behind the scenes, etc.
