Powering Up/Powering Down
January 28 - February 1, 2004

TEKNIKA RADICA is now accepting proposals for an interdisciplinary
colloquium investigating arts technologies and received histories.
Powering Up/Powering Down will take place on the campus of UC San Digo
and surrounding venues in San Diego and Tijuana. For 3 days artists,
musicians, writers and scholars of diverse backgrounds will collaborate
on a living laboratory-opera through their individual contributions and
the exchanges they ignite. Contributors include Maryanne Amacher, Ron
Athey, Sharon Daniel, Johanna Fateman (Le Tigre), DJ Kuttin Kandi,
George Lipsitz, Los Cybrids, Lisa Nakamura, Pauline Oliveros, Pat Payne,
and T. Kim-Trang Tran, and many more.

We welcome performances and objects/installations in any medium or
combination of media, as well as scholarly papers, panel proposals,
workshops and skill-shares. Proposals should do one or a combination of
the following: 

critically/creatively respond to issues of interface and identity in
arts technologies 
challenge traditional conceptual polarities (white/racialized,
male/female, high/low tech, machine/body) 
address structural limitations on access to knowledge and equipment
(class-based, race-based, gender-based) 
make use of appropriated technology: alternative uses, creative
alterations and "queerings" of standard technologies. 

If proposing a paper or workshop, the abstract should be no longer than
250 words. If proposing media, examples should not exceed 5 minutes and
be accompanied with an abstract no longer than 150 words. In either
case, the abstract should give a working title and clearly indicate its
relevance to the colloquium theme. Please include a cover sheet with
your name, affiliation (if any), address, email address, and phone
number. If proposing a panel, please give pertinent information for all
participants in the panel. Selections will be announced via email.
