“Expanded Animation: Synaesthetic Syntax” presented by Hagler and Hosea


Presentation Title:

  • Expanded Animation: Synaesthetic Syntax




  • Expanded Animation is an annual series of events at the media festival Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria, organized by the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Hagenberg Campus (FHOÖ) and Ars Electronica, in collaboration with the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham (UCA). Based on earlier discussions at the festival and in conjunction with the Prix Ars Electronica’s category Computer Animation, the events address computer animation in the context of media art and serve as a hybrid between practice and theory. Expanded Animation features talks, panel discussions, workshops, and artist presentations at various venues (i.e., museum, university, festival, cinema). In 2020, the one-day symposium Synaesthetic Syntax was first included as part of Expanded Animation.

    Since then, it has developed into an active platform for international discussion regarding the complex relationships between sensory perception and expanded animation. This paper is a proposal to present Synaesthetic Syntax, its archive, the collaborators, and the upcoming initiatives (events and publication).
