Electric Dreams

Electric Dreams is the 1st International Symposium and Exhibition organised
by the Computational Media and Arts Thrust (CMA
<https://cma.hkust-gz.edu.cn/>) of the Hong Kong University of Science and
Technology in Guangzhou (HKUST (GZ) <https://hkust-gz.edu.cn/>). In a
series of talks and discussions led by top international speakers and
artists an interdisciplinary discourse is sought to open new pathways for
exploring cutting-edge technologies, such as artificial intelligence, the
metaverse, and their creative potential. The online symposium and
exhibition explore the dystopian ghosts of cyberpunk, juxtaposing
technological achievements with societal decay while also discussing the
new realities and possibilities that are now emerging from that neural
darkness.



The CMA at HKUST (Guangzhou) promotes the interplay of media arts,
technology, and research and exploits the most advanced technologies for
creativity with a social impact. Composed of faculty members and students
from diverse backgrounds, such as media arts and computing, the CMA’s
ambition is to become a leading light for computational media and art
practice and research. This event is the first of a series of annual events
bringing together leading global talent.
