Digital Art and Culture 2009: Open Source and Free Software in Brazil

Software/ platform studies

Software is the engine that drives cyberculture, new media, and digital art – a layer of control and communication that permeates contemporary culture. Platforms are the hardware and software relationships that enable and constrain software expressions. To investigate the logics of visualization, simulation, and representation in contemporary digital arts and culture is to engage in Software Studies and Platform Studies. The DAC09 Software and Platform Studies Theme invites submissions that explore digital art and culture through source codes, platform architectures, or similar engagements. Papers and panels exploring the emerging paradigms of critical code studies and the interpretation of algorithms are particularly encouraged.

O software é a máquina que comanda a cibercultura, as novas mídias e a arte digital – é uma camada de controle e comunicação que permeia a cultura contemporânea. As plataformas são as relações entre hardware e software que permitem e dão forma às expressões do software. Investigar as lógicas de visualização, simulação e representação nas artes e na cultura digital contemporânea é estar engajado nos Estudos do Software e nos Estudos das Plataformas. A área de Estudos do Software e de Estudos das Plataformas do DAC09 convida os interessados que exploram as relações entre arte digital e cultura através dos códigos fontes, arquitetura de plataformas ou aproximações similares a submeterem os seus artigos. Artigos e painéis que exploram o paradigma emergente dos estudos críticos dos códigos e a interpretação de algorítmos são particularmente bem vindos.
