My paper is called 'Dalastugor: Creating images of belonging through diasporic touch' and looks specifically at how the Swedish traditional red-painted croft environment is transformed in my photographic practice.

CARBON MEETS SILICON II: Call for Contributions
Calls for contributions are now open for CARBON MEETS SILICON II, the interdisciplinary exhibition series which partners the biennial Internet Technologies and Applications Conference (ITA).
ITA17 (www.ita17.net) is the seventh event in the hugely successful series, held at Wrexham Glyndwr University in North Wales. The conference takes place from 12th to 15th September 2017, bringing together international contributors from academia and industry, and leaders in fields ranging from computing and engineering to art and design.
CARBON MEETS SILICON II will take place in Oriel Sycharth Gallery (www.glyndwr.ac.uk/OrielSycharthGallery), opening, with ITA17, on 12th September 2017, and focus on the well-established discourse of artists and designers in collaboration with scientists and technologists. Alongside the exhibition, a symposium will also take place on 12th September 2017, providing an arena for exhibitors to extend the debate on interdisciplinary practices and collaboration.
For both the exhibition and symposium, we are interested in responses to questions including;
How are innovations in science and technology impacting upon the arts?
How are innovations in the arts impacting upon science and technology?
Who are arts-science collaborations for?

What problems can arts-science collaborations solve?
What is an arts-science collaboration?
Where does the art end, and the science begin?
We welcome and encourage contributions across a wide range of subject areas, including (but not limited to) fine art, design practice, film, performance, sound and music, cultural and film studies.
