EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE 17TH FEBRUARY 2019
Dates: 3-5 July 2019

xCoAx is an exploration of the intersection of computational tools and media, with art and culture, in the form of a multi-disciplinary enquiry on aesthetics, computation, communication and the elusive X factor that connects them all.
The focus of xCoAx is on the unpredictable overlaps between the chaos and freedom of creativity and the rules and determinism of algorithms, between human nature and machine technology, with the aim to evolve towards new directions in aesthetics.
In 2019 xCoAx will take place in Milan, Italy.
