CHI 2013 Workshop – Crafting Interactive Systems: Learning from Digital
Art Practice
Palais de Congrès de Paris, France
27th or 28th April, 2013 (scheduled date TBA)

Key Dates:
• Submission by: January 11th, 2013
• Notification of Acceptance: February 8th, 2013
• Workshop days: April 27th or April 28th, 2013 (scheduled date TBA)

To create digital art, skillsets from a variety of disciplines are
combined to form a finished aesthetic product. This workshop will bring
together participants from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds,
including art, music, design, and engineering to explore how the
technological aspects of digital art function not merely in service to
artistic considerations but rather, have creative and communicative value
in their own right. We will discuss how explicit valuation of technical
process in interdisciplinary design helps enrich the experience of digital
art creation, and explore how technology itself is and can be
aestheticized in digital art practice.

We invite participants to submit 2-4 page position papers tackling
subjects relevant to the discussion of technical process and technological
innovation in digital art practice, including, but not limited to, the
following topics:

• Reflection on how technological innovation has informed one’s own
digital art practice

• Case studies exploring good and bad practice in interdisciplinary

• Aestheticizing technology in digital art creation and design

• Integration of ‘technical’ and ‘creative’ skillsets in HCI and design

In addition to submissions from the CHI research community, we also
welcome and encourage participation from artists and practitioners.

Submissions should be sent in CHI Extended Abstract format to

A committee of experts in the aforementioned topics will review position
papers. At least one author of each accepted submission must register for
the workshop and at least one day of the main CHI conference.
