Embodiment & Mobility Symposium April 3rd at RISD

Teri Rueb and myself are organizing the Digital+Media Symposium on “Embodiment & Mobility” for Friday, April 3rd 2009 at RISD in Providence, US. Please distribute widely and reserve your space – we hope you can make it despite of the short notice! More information is as http://dm.risd.edu/news/2009/03/embodiment-mobility-a-digitalmedia-symposium-on-april-3rd/ and below. Many speakers will talk about sound in their embodied and mobile art practice.


The Symposium Embodiment & Mobility takes place on Friday, April 3rd on the 4th floor of the CIT building (see below). We will have a morning session starting at 9:30, the afternoon session will start after lunch at 2:30 and finish around 5pm. We will then have drinks at a newly-opened D+M student curated exhibition across the road.

At 6pm Chris Salter will give a talk as part of the “Music and Body” Colloquium at Brown’s Meme program with whom we are glad to co-organize Chris Salter’s contribution and some of you might want to join this event.

We will round off the evening with a dinner at a nearby affordable restaurant (own expense).

This symposium is free and open to the public. However we ask you to reserve your space with Sue Mazzucco at digital at risd dot edu. Thank you!
