I am pleased to announce my paper Image“Revelations by Flicker: Dream Machines and Electroencephalographic signals in art” has been accepted for the AISB-50 Symposium on “The Future of Art and Computing: A Post-Turing Centennial Perspective”, to be held this April. The Symposium will be on Thursday 3rd April, I am scheduled for 2pm, with AISB-50 running 1-4 April, 2014.
