STATEMENT OF PURPOSE ISEA is committed to interdisciplinary and cross-cultural communication/cooperation between the arts and the fields of new media technology, science, education and industry. The aim of the symposium and the parent organization (also called ISEA) is to systematically investigate the problems and potentials of electronic art and to further inter-disciplinary and inter-organizational cooperation. For the purpose of the symposium, Electronic Arts is defined as “all art forms that use electronic technology as an essential prerequisite for their production”. The symposium will be held from Sunday, October 27th to Thursday, October 31st in Nagoya,Japan. THEME [Orai] is a Japanese word that has many interpretations. It refers to comings and goings, communication, and contact, as well as streets and traffic. About 200 years ago, a book titled Nagoya Orai was compiled and published in Nagoya which was used as a kind of textbook for teaching, writing, and development of literacy. Through discussions around art and its inter-disciplinary studies, ISEA2002 NAGOYA [Orai] hopes to provide an opportunity to create a new text and explore new forms of literacy in the electronically networked society. TOPICS Topics include theory, Internet & electronic society, art, design, architecture & urbanism, music, performing arts, programming & software, education & literacy as well as the 2002 special topics, [Orai]. COMMITTEES For ISEA2002, We organize Support Committee for foreign participants especially for ones from under-represented regions.
