Perform.Media is an international media arts festival and symposium 
creating an innovative venue for creative and intellectual work 
around the momentary process and performance in new media art and 
culture.  We begin with the premise that newer media, along with 
modes of representation and narrative, embody momentary processes 
from roots in cybernetics and the biological, to the embodied 
performance of interface, improvised network exchanges and 
spontaneous social acts in multi-user synthetic worlds.  Such 
mediated experiences and actions form meaning in sense experience and 

performance along with interpretive processes like depiction and 
reception.  The dynamic, reciprocal process of the user(s) 
generating, configuring, interacting, choosing and authoring is an 
important component of new media and technologies, expressed in both 
the design of the media and in the momentary, improvised performance 
of the participant.

The festival and symposium seeks the accordance and collision of 
ideas through the lens of interdisciplinarity, exploring the 
performance of new media and the performative qualities of human-
computer and technologically mediated social interaction.  
Perform.Media will examine sense experience and meaning at the 
threshold and in the performing action, along with the reflexive 
construction of narrative, where creative play, social practices, 
augmented embodiment and exploratory methods establish processes that 

spin out, overlapping locales of influence, in networked, 93glocal94, 

mobile, participatory, socially interactive, live processed, 
locative, responsive and multi-user realms.

Perform.Media aims to examine and melt the usual spatial and temporal 

prescriptions of author and spectator in art, creative work and 
intellectual practice. Perform.Media traverses transdisciplinary 
territories in collaborations and social feedbacks of live sound
+image, interactive and game media, HCI, improvisations, performance 
processes, interactive gallery environments, mobile and locative 
work, live art works, net.art, research practices, theoretical 
discussion, paper presentations, workshops, intimacy and 
communication both online and off.

++Paper Presentations, Panels, Workshops, Intellectual Environments 
and Practices

The Perform.Media symposium welcomes submissions of papers, panel 
discussions, workshops and intellectual environments around the theme 

of the festival- performance process in new media, theory, research 
and technological practice.  The Perform.Media symposium seeks to 
promote discussion and collaboration.  The environment of the 
symposium will be conversation based.  Proposals for panels, 
workshops and presentations that energize into new areas of 
intellectual exchange will be welcomed.  All presentations will be 
moderated and encourage participation, questioning and debate.  An 
online forum, discussion and net.art exhibition will precede the 
festival.  Paper abstracts will be published on the Perforrm.Media
