The PI Symposium is a 3-day event on art and emerging technologies.  The idea is to bring together scientists (from robotics, biomedical ethics, sociology of the media, ethnology), transmedia artists (augmented reality, design, 3D animation) and video game developers (for therapy and entertainment) with personalities from the fields of art, culture, and academic research, to debate the relationship between man and technology in a rapidly developing, culturally digital world.

A selection from the student work (videos, animations, digital paintings, interactive installations, drawings, transmedia) entered for the “Imaginary Landscapes II” biennial international competition, initiated by Patrizia Abderhalden, who directs the EPAC, and Eng-Hiong Low, in collaboration with the MoCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) at Taipei on Taiwan (ROC), and the fruit of collaboration between arts academies and universities in Europe and Asia. The theme of this second edition was “Immortal quest – new spaces and codes – the post human”.
