The DEAF_00 Symposium brings together an  international group of
scientists, theorists, artists and sociologists who  present and discuss
their approaches to the phenomenon of time in an  interdisciplinary field
of art, performance, music, technology and  society.

Machine Times takes a close look at the role that time plays in  the
constitution of our technological reality.

Time was, for a long time,  regarded as objective and continuous. More
recently it has become clear that  time is built into natural and
technological processes at different 'speeds.'  Time is produced by
machinic processes and it is malleable through the  interaction of
machines. The experience of time is a technological concept.  Machine Times
investigates the way in which time is built into technological and  social
systems, and presents artistic approaches to the manipulation, distortion
and elimination of time.
