IF’11: Animal Influence will host a workshop and concurrent exhibitions, performances and screenings that will offer opportunities for in depth conversations and discussions between invited cognitive ethologists, biologists, psychologists, philosophers, artists and public policy makers whose work has helped to shift assumed conventions concerning animal cognition, consciousness, and agency, as well as reveal possibilities for the development of new media implementing image, text, and sound, and video.
The IF’11 workshop features prominent international presenters; artists, researchers and experts in these fields. The two keynote speakers, well- known and respected cognitive ethologist Marc Bekoff and international new media artist Lisa Jevbratt, will address aspects of these sub-themes.
