Conference founder, Argentinian-born artist and scholar Ricardo Dal Farra, writes:

Balance-Unbalance (BunB) brings multiple disciplines together to explore intersections between nature, art, science, new technologies and society to advance ecological awareness and sustainability practices and to inspire wide-ranging community engagement in the face of unprecedented environmental challenges.

We are living in a world at the tipping point, where the equilibrium between a healthy environment and the energy our society needs to maintain or improve its lifestyle and its interconnected economies could collapse more quickly than expected. The conference envisions the [media/electronic/sound] arts as a catalyst for reimagining our current environments.

The call for papers, posters, installations/performances and transdisciplinary activities and panels is already open.
