CHI 2016 – Method Stories – A workshop on sharing methods for involving people with Impairments in design

Posted by Niels on Wednesday December 9th 2015 at 08:55

image of workshop chi 2016We are happy to invite you to our CHI2016 workshop on sharing methods for involving people with impairments in the design process. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and designers who have involved people with cognitive or sensory impairments in design and to explore how the creation and adaptation process of their methods could be documented and shared. More specifically, the concept of method stories will be explored, an approach of recording behind stories of how methods are made. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will discuss method stories they have created and think about suitable method story elements and formats. Future actions for continuing the method stories approach will be discussed.

You can apply by submitting a method story representing the making process of a method that you used for involving people with cognitive or sensory impairments in a design project. The submission format is open and we encourage you to carefully consider the most suitable format for your method story (e.g. written stories, videos, collages, audio stories, interviews, …). More information about method stories, including examples, can be found on the the workshop website, which also includes suggestions for elements to include in your method story.

Submissions should be digitally transferrable and sharable. Your method story should include those aspects of your methodological approach that are relevant to share with other researchers and designers and we encourage you to address personal reflection, trial-and-error experiences and adaptations to existing methodologies.

*   Submission deadline: 15 January 2016*
*   Notifications: 12 February 2016
*   Workshop: 7 or 8 May 2016
*In case you need a notification before the end of Q4 2015 for financial reasons, please contact us directly.

CFP: SupraSpace: On the Concept of Space and Place in Art and Visual Culture

SupraSpace: On the Concept of Space and Place in Art and Visual Culture
International Conference
Tel Aviv University, Art History Department

June 3 – 04, 2012
Deadline CFP: Jan 15, 2012

Keynote speaker: Prof. Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, Department of Art and
Archaeology, Princeton University

Space has been subject to aesthetic, art-historical, philosophical,
anthropological, geographical and political investigations, each with
its idiosyncratic definitions. Space maintains a close relation with
illusionism, narrativity, and the performative qualities of art.  Space
is especially interconnected with time, making it impossible to
separate one from the other. In the current dynamic reality in which we
live, it is hard to remain confined to just one modality of spatial
thinking that will capture all of its complexity; yet this problem is
not limited to our contemporary globalized moment, but is also relevant
to different historical periods. Consequently, in order to engage
effectively with the problem of space, recent studies have demonstrated
multiple methods of conceptualization, while emphasizing the
dialectical relations and tensions between them.
Within the realms of art and culture, the discourse on space has often
engaged with problems of representation (artistic genres such
landscape, narrative space, chronotopos, interior/exterior, etc), or
with political issues relating to territorial conflicts and borders.

CFP: Conf. on Public art & community

CALL FOR PAPERS: 2010 Conference: “Art on the Street”
The Korean Society of Art Theories, Seoul, KOREA
October 24, 2010

We seek to build upon the recent discussion on public art and community by
investigating specific examples of the practices of contemporary art in
particular contexts. We pay attention to the way in which the process of
creation, perception, and reception of the artwork relates to the
formation
of a community
. We invite papers on mural projects, site-specific urban
planning projects, parks, public monuments, and other types of
community-oriented projects. Discussions on a project or network of
activities that form relationships among participants and a public are also
encouraged. At the same time, we hope to explore artistic practices that
resist or negotiate in terms of everyday life, localization, globalization,
and social and cultural structures. We also encourage papers that revisit
the issue of memory of community. While proposing art as potential means of
collective empowerment, we aim to investigate art that invokes or produces a
community. All perspectives and methodologies are welcome.
