Topics for the 2019 Consciousness Reframed Conference

The conference will look at the nature of artificial thought, and forms of intelligence in nature – charted through aspects of transdisciplinary creative practice and theory in our planetary culture.

Just as new paradigms of feeling and communication are beginning to form around our interaction with life at all levels of our perception, from plants and trees to fungi and bacteria, we may see matter as inhabited mind, media as necessarily moist, and technology as a tool of the Tao.

Thought is spreading through all our systems, places and products. We need cities  that are not only smart but sensitive: schools that think,  roads that remember, buildings that feel. art that is as much extra-sensory as interpersonal.

Our consciousness is both reframing and reforming.
