in situ – art | body | medicine: The 10th Annual Subtle Technologies Festival 2007, Toronto, Canada :: May 24-27, 2007: Subtle Technologies Symposium - Register Early for discounted Festival Passes!

Subtle Technologies is a unique, multidisciplinary festival that explores the complex and subtle relationships between art and science. For the 10th Annual Festival, Subtle Technologies presents practitioners of arts, sciences and medicines, and those who study their context, historians, ethicists, and other critical thinkers to contemplate how these disciplines can work together and reshape perspectives on the body.

As scientific and technological breakthroughs prominently occupy our culture, we ask where the boundaries are. We investigate how we relate bodies in situ: as parts, as a whole, as systems; how we identify, map, modify, protect, violate, and heal.

The programming juxtaposes cutting-edge artistic projects and scientific exploration.

Events include:

BioArt Online Discussion co-presented with Year Zero One.

SymbioticA Tissue Engineering Workshop for Artists co-presented with Year Zero One.

Panel Discussion on the biological as a medium in art and science: Art, Science, and the Emotional Response co-presented with MicrobeWorld and Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD).

Symposium featuring 26 speakers.

Evening of Performance featuring dance, robotics, butoh.

Exhibitions at InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre, Ontario Science Centre, Innis Town Hall Neighbourhood + Ayurveda on Queen Street West.
