19-22 November, 2008: 3rd International Design and Cinema Conference
Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Architecture
CALL FOR WORKS
Submission Deadline: June 30, 2008
Third International Design and Cinema Conference (Design Cinema 2008) will be held on November 19-22, 2008 in Istanbul, Turkey. The meeting, themed as design-en-scene, is organized with the intention that scholars and practitioners will come together for interrogating the role and kinds of designed environments and their production that expand our experiences. We seek to bring to the front through this conference one of the ongoing discussions, in terms of potentials originating from design-cinema relations: representation and realization of the designed setting with reference to theory, tools, and practices.
The topics fall under three categories:
Designing of objects and environments Experience of designed objects and environments
Manipulation of the real Blurring of the real
Creation of a parallel universe Implementation Hybrid existences
CALL FOR WORKS
