Ths conference will be open to the wider public ond it wll count with the keynote speech of the filmmaker and anthropologist Catarina ‘Alves Costa. Abstiacis for papers, ims and visual proposals are welcome on the following themes Pushing the boundaries of aesthetics and the human in visual representation Representations of ived experience may be meticulous and articulated as in LéviSrauss wrlings and Hitchcock's films, or expressed os excessive, ambiguous, marginalized, and repressed as evident in Roeg's films and Lotman's semiotics. The unique woys in which everyday lf is oudio-visually represented highlights the multiple realties ond subjectivities that characterise our world. To understand the nuances of human experience, Deleuze and Guottari (1986} called forthe production of “assemblages of collecive enunciation’ whereby portcipatory engagement ‘with people and places operaies as a hosting device for 0 mulipliity of subaliem beings and stories. Tis implies “ioking seriously” the experiences of others (Viveiros de Casto, 2010) and realizing hat representation is dynamic and poliical ond thus, it creates new conditions of possibilty and room for alter-ontologies {Ingowani, 2013} Represeniations are not solely constucted through individual agency. Intesubjectve relaionshipsin collaborative practice, external entities in audio visual media, and the wider environment also shope the way that the world is perceived, represented, and lived in (see Harman, 2011; Spartow, 2014; Towren 2014) This conference aims at exploring hese ideas, and welcomes papers hat ctically engage with how audio-visual media con be used to expiess everyday lived experiences, ond how processes of creative representation ore influenced by socio-spotal interactions (Askins & Pain, 2OT]).
