** * *UNFOLDING IMAGES – VR, Volumetric Filmmaking and Spatial Control7th
Besides the Screen International ConferenceFederal University of Espirito
Santo, Brazil, 31 May to 2 June 2017Deadline for proposals: 20th March
2017Once again, virtual reality is a technology to come. The recent
popularisation of immersive displays has revamped the interest on the
possibilities of this subject. Alongside came the growth of other forms of
volumetric image capture and exhibition, such as 3-D scanning and 360o
video. These systems, many of them created to enable computer sensing, are
now informing other observers. The way they have been deployed in fields
from social media to heritage preservation and prosthetic medicine indicate
their broad impact on emerging spatial ontologies.The next Besides the
Screen conference means to frame these growing trends in volumetric imaging
in the long history intertwining geography and optics. Departing from
cinema, the event seeks to explore how space and image have shaped one
another across different media and cultural systems, tracing the power
relations that cause topological subjectivities to emerge.We invite
proposals of papers, workshops, performances, screenings, artist
presentations, and experimental projects that address, explore, and subvert
topics such as:- the past, present, and future of VR technologies- 360o and
immersive filmmaking in different genres- bodily affects and proprioception
within virtual environments- multi-camera stitching aesthetics- visual
effects / in-frame spatial compositing, both digital and analog- 3-D
animation and synthetic spaces- moving images resulting from 3-D scanning,
photogrammetry, and structured light capture- developments in computer
vision and depth perception- real-time cartography as control interfaces-
responses from the media and data industries to new image technologies-
early stereoscopic, anamorphic, and panoramic devices- event cinema,
site-specific projections, and pop-up screenings- cleavages and
continuities between architecture and the moving image- moving image
installation and performances- etcTo submit a project, please send an
abstract (~250 words) and a short biographical note (~150 words) to the
address besidesthescreen at gmail.com <besidesthescreen at gmail.com>, with the
subject SUBMISSION: BESIDES THE SCREEN 2017. Please include links for demos
/ previews of any video, performance, or installation submission. The
deadline is 20th March 2017.* * *Besides the Screen is an international
research network on the subject of experimental audiovisual media. It aims
to reconfigure the field of screen studies by refocusing it on the
seemingly secondary objects, processes, and practices that exist within
cinema. Besides the Screen also means to promote an open and horizontal
academic environment, favouring practice-based approaches to research and
artist collaborations. More info can be found at besidesthescreen.com

supported by FAPES, CNPq, SECULT-ES, De Montfort University, King’s College
London, and UFES.*
