**SUBMIT YOUR PRESENTATION PROPOSAL BY APRIL 15, 2021 **

The 4th SPARKS online Zoom session will feature presenters who create art using robotics, electronics, or artificial intelligence. In popular culture, robots and artificial intelligence are often depicted as menacing, unethical and sinister threats to humanity. Yet these technologies have the potential to positively impact social and cultural systems as well as transform life as we know it. Artists have been working with electronics, robotics and AI to explore, speculate, and reflect on the broader relationship between human, machine, and the environment. 

We seek presentations of artworks and research that stimulate people to view the world in different ways, provoke innovative interactions, spark creative responses, and challenge our notion of technology’s potential. Creative research and artworks that address diverse issues related to ethics, embodiment, identity, mimicry, automata, agency, social interaction, collaboration, privacy, surveillance, and other related issues are encouraged.
