NOWNET ARTS CONFERENCE 2023

Immersion in Network Arts: Innovations for Artistic and Technological Designs
October 30 - November 4, 2023 (Eastern Daylight Time)

NowNet Arts Conference is an annual event for artists, technologists, researchers, educators, and industry professionals advancing topics in contemporary network arts for the ongoing development of the field. The theme for our 6th annual conference "Immersion in Network Arts: Innovations for Artistic and Technological Designs" explores immersion in hybrid and virtual settings, physical and perceptual realms, and histories of immersion in artistic works. Immersive work lives on the hyphen that connects senses. How do we create immersion across geographic distances? What are cultural elements of immersion? What are the artistic qualities of immersive works? How do we design immersive technological environments in network arts? What alternatives to immersion can network arts offer? The NowNet Arts Conference 2023 presents papers, panels, presentations, workshops, and performance demonstrations that feature this topic and generate new innovations for this work forward.
