CHI 2013 Workshop -- Crafting Interactive Systems: Learning from Digital Art Practice
Palais de Congrès de Paris, France
**April 27th, 2013**
Contact: [log in to unmask]

Key Dates:
• Submission by: January 11th, 2013
• Notification of Acceptance: February 8th, 2013
• Workshop days: April 27th, 2013

To create digital art, skillsets from a variety of disciplines are combined to form a finished aesthetic product. This workshop will bring together participants from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds, including art, music, design, and engineering to explore how the technological aspects of digital art function not merely in service to artistic considerations but rather, have creative and communicative value in their own right. We will discuss how explicit valuation of technical process in interdisciplinary design helps enrich the experience of digital art creation, and explore how technology itself is and can be aestheticized in digital art practice. 

We invite participants to submit  2-4 page position papers tackling subjects relevant to the discussion of technical process and technological innovation in digital art practice, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

• Reflection on how technological innovation has informed one’s own digital art practice

• Case studies exploring good and bad practice in interdisciplinary collaboration

• Aestheticizing technology in digital art creation and design

• Integration of ‘technical’ and ‘creative’ skillsets in HCI and design research.

In addition to submissions from the CHI research community, we also welcome and encourage participation from artists and practitioners.


Submissions should be sent in CHI Extended Abstract format to [log in to unmask]

A committee of experts in the aforementioned topics will review position papers. At least one author of each accepted submission must register for the workshop and at least one day of the main CHI conference.
