The conferences "Taboo-Transgression-Transcendence in Art & Science"
include theoretical presentations and artists' talks focusing: a) on
questions about the nature of the forbidden and about the aesthetics
of liminality - as expressed in art that uses or is inspired by
technology and science, b) in the opening of spaces for creative
transformation in the merging of science and art.

A brainchild of Dalila Honorato, Assistant Professor at the Ionian
University (GR), the first two conferences, TTT2016 and TTT2017 were
held in Corfu, organized by the Department of Audio & Visual Arts and
supported by public and private institutions, mostly local. In the
past two years the conference counted, with the presence of Stelarc,
Roy Ascott, Adam Zaretsky, Manos Danezis, Polona Tratnik, Gunalan
Nadarajan, Irina Aristarkhova, Marta de Menezes, Maria Antonia
Gonzalez Valerio, Andrew Carnie and Kathy High as guest speakers. In
2016 and 2017, among other events, the conference teamed up with the
Audiovisual Arts Festival and the Municipal Gallery of Corfu to host
the exhibitions "Stelarc: Alternate Anatomies", "iGMO: Adam Zaretsky"
and "Body Esc" including works of artists Andrew Carnie (UK), Alkistis
Georgiou (Greece), Marne Lucas (USA), Joseph Nechvatal (France), Kira
O' Rilley & Manuel Vason (Finland & UK), Nikos Panayotopoulos
(Greece), Ayse Gul Suter (Turkey), Hege Tapio (Norway) and Adam
Zaretsky (USA).

The conference proceedings, available as a free ebook published by the
Department of Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University for TTT2016
are available in the proceedings page of TTT2016 and for TTT2017 in
the proceedings page of TTT2017, both edited by Dalila Honorato and
Andreas Giannakoulopoulos, also Assistant Professor at the Ionian
University (GR) and webmaster of the conferences official website.
Selected texts from the TTT2017 were published on the special issue
vol. 15:2 of the Technoetic Arts journal, following the invitation of
Roy Ascott (editor-in-chief) to Dalila Honorato (guest-editor).
