New Release: The Art Exhibit at ICIDS 2019 Art Book

The ETC Press is proud to announce the release of the The Art Exhibit at ICIDS 2019 Art Book.

This volume collects documentation of the 2019 International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS) Art Exhibition and new scholarly texts from the artists involved. The works collected here explore interactive storytelling through the broad lens of the curated theme: The Expression of Emotion in Humans and Technology. Charles Darwin argued almost 150 years ago, the Universal Nature of Expression; which is to say that, “the young and the old of widely different races, both with man and animals, express the same state of mind by the same movements.” As technology, robotics, and artificial intelligence advances, it seems appropriate to ask how we might interpret and understand expressions of emotion from technology.
