RHIZOME_RAW: ISEA launches ChatterBox 1.0

C h a t t e r B o x 

ISEA/Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts is pleased to announce a new project. ChatterBox is a series of moderated discussions on ISEA-Forum, a listserv which is open to both ISEA members and non-members. 

The discussions will be on selected and specific topics in the electronic arts; about issues, for instance, such as the intersection of the arts with the fields of technology, science, education, and industry. These conversations will be about creative process, specific art practices, the work of specific artists, art theory, artist centres, educational institutions, research and innovation in the realm of the electronic arts, emerging forms and artists, etc. The possible topics are open and endless.

ISEA launches an open call for potential guest moderators to send us ChatterBox proposals. The guest moderator of each edition of ChatterBox is responsible for finding and obtaining the texts of the 3 or 4 panelists, as well as for writing a short 500 word overview.  

ChatterBox will be a bi-monthly affair beginning this September. The texts could be theory, criticism, personal accounts, or creative writing. The ISEA-Forum public-at-large is invited to intervene, comment, discuss.  

Future editions of ChatterBox include: cyberspace and architecture; dance, technology, and the body; and new media art in Eastern Europe. 

A popular way of participating thus far has been diffusing panel sessions from conferences on the electronic arts. This gives panelists at these conferences added international exposure.

The idea is not to re-orient ISEA Forum away from its current form as a free, open discussion, but to add to this existing framework a series of more structured and specific debates.

Please send your ideas and proposals for ChatterBox to:
