TEI 2012 Art Explorations Submission Deadline Extended 

The submission deadline for TEI 2012 Art Explorations has been extended to 
November 30th , 4:59 pm PST 2011. 

About TEI Art Explorations 

The Art Explorations track at TEI 2012 invites interactive artworks that 
explore the intersections between rich materiality, sensory & performative 
interaction and digital and computational expression. The work should be 
tangibly evocative, thought provoking and content rich. Artworks can employ 
interactivity through digital installations, technology-enriched fashion and 
textiles, and interactive products and services. Art Explorations welcomes work 
from a wide range of practitioners in areas such as interaction design, art, or 
research, including submissions from students and independent practitioners. 

Submissions should meet the following criteria: 

• Relevant: The work must have a tangible aspect, in the form of an 
installation, object or art piece. 
• Technological: It must involve computational technology in some aspect of its 
form or function. 
• Aesthetic: It must have an aesthetic element in form of craftsmanship and 
communicate its message effectively through form, function and emotion. 
• Creative: It must be inventive, in its concept, technical architectural or 
physical form. 

Submissions will be selected according to the following criteria: 

• Concept: Conceptual quality of the work. Is the work new, appropriate, 
compelling? Does it provoke or intensify critical reflection? Does the work 
invent new technical or physical approaches to TEI? 
• Execution (craft): Is the work well realized? Is it built and executed to a 
high standard? Will it be suitable to exhibit at the TEI 2012 conference? 
• Aesthetics: Aesthetic quality of the work. Is the material, interaction and 
concept aesthetically evocative? Does the work invoke, insight or delight the 
senses? Does it intensify, enchant, amuse or reflect upon subtle, visceral 
qualities of experience? 
• Provocative: Does the work challenge the status quo of art and design theory 
and practice. 

Submissions will be selected from a panel of expert jurors. 

Art Explorations can include but are not limited to: 

• Art installations involving tactile, sonic, kinetic, and visually rich 
• Inventions in robotics, sensing, toys, games and entertainment 
• Materially or textile enriched performative or experiential interactivity 
• Architectural prototypes experiences and installations 

Submission Instructions 

Submissions must NOT be anonymous. The two elements to the submissions are: 

• a link to a video (hosted on youtube or vimeo) showing the look and feel of 
the work and highlighting its interactive elements. The video must be no more 
than 5 minutes in length. Alternately, you can upload your video on the PCS 
submission system. If submitting your work is not possible in this format, 
please contact the chairs for alternative video submission instructions. 
• a 2-page written description explaining the concept, references and rationale 
behind the project in ACM SIGCHI extended abstracts landscape format (i.e. the 
template below). This document must not exceed 10 MB in size. 

At the Conference 

At the conference, selected Art Explorations will be installed during the demo 
session. It will be possible to exhibit a poster next to the installation or 
object. The written description of accepted submissions will be made available 
on the ACM digital library. There will be no opportunity to modify submitted 
material after acceptance. TEI 2012 will also post the videos from accepted 
submissions on www.youtube.com and link directly to this content from the TEI 
2012 site. Copyright will remain with authors.
