9th Annual Subtle Technologies Festival investigates Architecture and
Responsiveness in 2006
June 1st - June 4th, 2006
University of Toronto, Toronto Canada
Recognized internationally as a forum that encourages new insights and
collaborations, Subtle Technologies invites artists and scientists to
contemplate how art and science can work together and reshape perspectives.
The gathering will include four days of presentations including illustrated
talks, gallery installations, workshops and discussions. Subtle Technologies
events encourage active discussion and draws upon the wide-ranging
perspectives of participants and audience members. The extraordinary
interest of highly specialized topics and often-unexpected threads woven
between presentations make the festival a unique experience.
This year's theme for Subtle Technologies is Responsive Architecture. We are
interested in investigating how environments and systems can interact and
respond to their occupants. We hope for wide-ranging discussions and
presentations that explore dynamic systems and environments at every scale,
from molecules to continents. The conference will include a wide definition
of architecture that encompasses buildings, mechanical and natural
Examples of possible topics include:
Buildings that can move and transform

2006 festival is being held in partnership with SoundaXis, a Toronto-wide
event inspired by the work of renowned architect-composer Iannis Xenakis.
Specialized topics include:
Physics of sound
We encourage demonstrations and can accommodate a wide variety of
presentations. Technical support and honoraria for presenters is included.
Summaries of past presentations are archived on our website. We encourage
those interested in submitting a proposal to acquaint themselves with our

a non-specialized audience. Presentations typically last 40 minutes,
followed by a ten minute question and answer period.
