In spite of technological advances striving for greater clarity and resolution, visuals that counteract such perfection may never have been more appreciated. This conference will explore the delineation of precarious aesthetics to understand the operational logics of precarious mediation. It will be hosted from 15-17 October 2015 by the Berkeley Center for New Media in collaboration with the Department of Film & Media at UC Berkeley and the research project The Power of the Precarious Aesthetic at The Department of Media, Cognition and Communication, University of Copenhagen. Speakers include Tom Gunning (University of Chicago), Christine Ross (McGill University), Jeffrey Skoller (UC Berkeley), and others. The submission deadline is 1 May 2015. Inquiries can be sent to Arild Fetveit at email@example.com.
