TEI 2023 Arts Track - Call for Submissions

Technology distances us from each other, causing the social tissue to
fall apart. It’s time for the tangible revolutions - being together
without screens. Screens have created a distance from the environment
that has shaped us, destroying the work of evolution that through
hundreds of thousands of years has adapted both the mind and body to the
ever changing environment. Nowadays the contact of the digital and
physical world has been dominated by the interaction with intermediary
screens whose flat surfaces have limited the sensory experience. Screens
cause the observation and manipulation of symbols that remove the person
from reality.

Smartphones, VRs, ARs, XRs, more and more screens around us. The need
for a tangible revolution is more than ever before, since our
understanding of the world is based on motion, action, active and bodily

We warmly invite artists who would like to show that another world is
possible. The world with less screens and more closeness - in short, to
be together without screens. For that we need a revolution, the tangible

We seek submissions that articulate viewpoints and facilitate dialogue
around the TEI conference themes as well as topics including but not
limited to:

- Hybrid assemblies that combine digital, physical, biological, and/or
social systems
- Artistic explorations of shape-, weight-, color- and size changing
materials (biosensors and bioactuators, shape memory alloys, thermo
and photochromic dyes, etc.)
- Wearable, on-body, and in-body computing
- Novel interactions realized through traditional crafts or
unconventional materials, professional artistry, craft, or
- Hybrid bodies, prosthetics, human augmentation, posthumanism
- Artistic reflections on the social, political, ethical, and aesthetic
dimensions of hybrid systems
- Interactive installations that critically reflect on hybrid

Accepted works will be exhibited in the Arts Track exhibition at the
Copernicus Science Centre.

ÚtesArtwork submission deadline: 30 September, 2022 Notification of
acceptance: 16 October, 2022 Camera-ready deadline: January 6, 2023 TEI
2023 conference: February 26 - March 1, 2023

Submission GuidelinesThe Arts Track welcomes submissions of artworks from a wide range of
practitioners and researchers in areas such as arts, music, design, new
media, biology, material science, and technology. We welcome submissions
from artists at all career stages, including students and independent

The submission should include:
- The artwork paper discussing the artwork theme and description (see
Format below)
- Documentation such as images, sketches, drafts, books, videos, etc.
Please add content or the link to the content in the artwork paper
pdf. The links should be unrestricted to ensure easy access for the
reviewing process.
- A pdf document with a technical requirement description
- Optional: An ethical statement. Any discussion point in the ethical
statements of NIME publications is a good start:
- Optional: An artist biography for the participating artist(s) (300
words or fewer per bio).

Format: TEI 2023 uses the new ACM workflow for submission templates and
published papers. This requires the use of a simplified one-column
template for submission, while the final two-column paper has to be
rendered for publication after acceptance. Submissions should be in the
form of a short (2 - 4 pages plus references) paper in PDF format that
will appear in the TEI Proceedings and will be indexed in the ACM
Digital Library. For further details please follow the provided
instructions or contact our Publication Chair.

File Size: Please note that the maximum size of your submission should
not exceed 40 Mb.. It will be possible to submit large videos via a link
to online content (e.g., YouTube or Vimeo).

Arts track reviews are single-blind, the submissions should therefore
include the author(s) name and affiliation.

Submissions are accepted through the submission portal at the link
below: https://new.precisionconference.com/submissions

Selection Process
Submissions will be selected based on their artistic merits and their
engagement with issues relevant to the field of tangible, embedded, and
embodied interactive art. In addition, the logistical constraints of the
venue may determine the eligibility of submitted projects.
Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review
process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in

Submissions will be reviewed on the following aspects:

Relevance - The work must have a tangible aspect, in the form of an
installation, performance, object, or physical event. Artistic - It must
operate significantly and compellingly through its formal, conceptual,
and experiential properties. Embodiment - The work must engage the human
body beyond the traditional screen-pointer interface. Computational
aspect - It must involve computational technology (digital, biological,
or analog) in some aspect of its form or function. Positioning - The
work must be positioned within related areas of theory and/or practice.
Feasibility- The submission should include all details to realise the
work, including tech details, budget, and feasibility explanation.

AttendanceArtists (or their delegates) will need to be available for installation
and bump-out, and for facilitating interaction with their artwork at
scheduled times. The authors are expected to finance their travel and
material budgets. One author of each accepted submission must register
for the conference before the early registration deadline in order for
the final paper version to appear in the conference proceedings. Contact
