In our current ecological moment of crisis a collision between art and science is not only necessary, but inevitable. Many social and environmental activists are proposing an ecological politics that encompasses the physical in terms of a singular planetary conception. The inaugural Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology Graduate Symposium, Collapsing Constellations: Remapping Art, Science and the Planetary seeks to explore imagined and practical spaces that exist between contemporary ecologies of knowledge – envisioning new routes for intellectual migration and pollination.
Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology is an experimental research centre based out of York University that supports cross-disciplinary work in all areas that intersect with digital media practices. Sensorium is a nexus for new ideas and experimentation that incorporates work from diverse fields of study and creates spaces for innovative dialogue. More information is available here.
