Tipping Point

Global / Local / Personal

SUNY New Paltz - New Paltz, NY   |   October 06 - October 07, 2018

 

Proposals are now being acepted with the theme of Tipping Points, the deadline is June 1, 2018 at 11:59pm (EST).

The world is facing unprecedented change on multiple fronts -- environmental, technological, sociological, psychological, and political. While historically things are always in flux, the exponential acceleration of so many factors is new to our age, as is the concept of humans propelling irreversible tipping points at a global scale. The world is facing unprecedented change on multiple fronts – environmental, technological, sociological, psychological and political.  While historically things are always in flux, the exponential acceleration of so many factors is new to our age, as is the concept of humans propelling irreversible tipping points at a global scale.

The 2018 SPE-NE Chapter Conference addresses the ways in which artists are responding to this rapid acceleration at global, local, and internal levels through photography and related media, and how the photographic medium itself might be implicated in these changes.

Tipping point (climatology), a point when global climate changes from one stable state to another stable state. Tipping point (physics), the point at which an object is displaced from a state of stable equilibrium into a new equilibrium state that is qualitatively dissimilar from the first. Tipping point (sociology), the event of a previously rare phenomenon becoming rapidly and dramatically more common. Tipping point (systems theory), signifies a critical point after which the system shifts radically and potentially irreversibly into a different equilibrium state.
