【Art x Technology x Crossover】
What is art? What is technology? Exactly what is its essence? And where is it heading? With the rapid progress of technology, people's demand for sensory stimulation is expending endless.
When technology is used as a medium, there is hope for both historical and contemporary art to gain visibility and public acceptance through cross-domain integration.
Taiwan's pioneering display of the crossover between technology and art can be traced back to around 2008.Since art itself is technical, when art and technology merge,
the core value of such a merger is the pursuit and imagination of humanities. When these two domains are integrated, creativity, innovation and possibilities can be endless.
Therefore, this thematic topic calls for theses that further explore: the relationships within different combinations,
and various forms of possible ideas in art, technology and the crossover between them, which includes bio-art, electronic art, new media art, technological art, and interactive art.

【In through the out world: Representing Folklore in East-Asian Visual Cultures】
In addition to facing challenges positively and staying afloat amid competition for limited resources, reality poses other survival issues to humanity. We must make up a logic that despite seemingly unreasonable, enables explanation of matters that escape our control and understanding. Artists freely navigate through all sorts of subject matters in their quest for inspiration. Mythologies, legends, customs, and rituals form an uninterrupted legacy of religious beliefs, personal values, and ideologies. The natural and supernatural phenomena created by artists based on certain theme hover between integration and conflict, but are ultimately a response to the range of human emotions expressed in folk culture. This issue of ARTISTICA TNNUA calls for studies on the representation of alternative worlds by visual artists in the East Asian domain. Art media range from painting, architecture, calligraphy, sculpture, and handicrafts to film and television. Welcome to submit your paper and share your ideas.
