ENERGY. Scientific and artistic, utopian and critical visions of 
future terrestrial energy.
Acoustic Space (Issue nr. 8)

	"Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be 
	(The law of conservation of energy)

RIXC Centre for New Media Culture is seeking manuscripts for the 
upcoming Acoustic Space journal entitled "ENERGY" (nr.8).

The journal will be published in between the previous 
Art+Comunication festival with the title ENERGY (organized by RIXC in 
2009, http://rixc.lv/09) and the forthcoming 2010 festival conference 
- NETWORKS AND SUSTAINABILITY. This conference event will be held in 
Riga, June 16-18, 2010 (moderated by Armin Medosch and Rasa Smite), 
and it will be a part of the 6th European Meeting of SLSA (the 
Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts) taking place in Riga 
and Liepaja, Latvia, June 15-20, 2010 

Following the theme of ENERGY, the next issue of 2010 will focus on 
different social and cultural aspects of energy in the contemporary 
human society, investigating the notion of 'sustainable development' 
from various perspectives - artistic, scientific, technological, 
architectural, environmental.

The print journal, Acoustic Space is a forum for new media culture 
and creative explorations in the networked (electro-acoustic, 
electromagnetic, wireless, radio, electronic) environments.
For the second time, Acoustic Space journal will come out as 'peer 
review' (refereeing) publication. It will be published by the MPLab 
(Art Research Lab) of Liepaja University in collaboration with the 
RIXC, The Center for New Media Culture.
