Public Art, HCI and Evaluation: a round table workshop
Location: The Murramarang Resort, NSW, Australia
This workshop arises from the ACM CHI conference’s 2012 featured community
Digital Arts and, in particular, its Special Interest Group meeting
“Evaluation, Appreciation, Critique”. The dialogue of that discussion is
continued in this forum with a focus on interactive art in public places.
It will result in a book publication.
Organisers: Creativity and Cognition Studios, University of Technology, Sydney
Workshop Dates: 18th, 19th October 2012
Position Papers due: 1st August 2012
The submission template is available here.
Submissions should be sent to Samuel.Ferguson@uts.edu.au by email.
Topics include (but are not limited to):
• Audience experience of interactive art
• Evaluation methods for public digital art
• Evaluation tools for public digital art
• Curating public digital art
• Development and production for public engagement
• Forms of engagement with interactive art
The Round-Table will be an active workshop in which each accepted
participant presents a paper that will form the basis of an extended
discussion. 50% of the time will be allocated to discussion.
Preprints of papers will be available at the workshop and, afterwards,
participants will be invited to revise their papers (based on the round
table discussion) for publication in a book to appear in the Springer
‘Cultural Computing’ series.
