Activity: Participating in or organising an event › Organisation and participation in conference
The conference theme addresses how the proliferation of digital and interactive technologies produces an intensified distribution of affect in most aspects of our daily lives. Complex interfacial entanglements between our online– and offline being-in-the-world are constantly modulating our very existential conditions. Interfaces imply affective foldings and changes in felt relations (containing bodies, subjectivities and technologies). The AIE conference investigates how affective interface events – on a micro- and macro-level – are reinforced by or can challenge these changes. A major concern of the conference is to consider interface modulations on an affective, social, aesthetic, and political level. The contributions to the conference have been carefully selected according to how to activate and conceptualise the affective relations involved in interface events and creations.
