Digital arts and culture can engage the rich world of human imagination and social construction. This theme explores digital art, cultural production, and theory focused on creating new ideas, worlds, and visions. Cognition no longer refers to only "what is inside the head" - it is now seen as contextual, distributed across individuals and artifacts, and embodied. Relevant topics include: artificial intelligence (AI) and the arts, philosophy of mind, game AI, metaphor and analogy, narrative, poetics, neuroscience and the arts, creative systems, supports for human creativity, language and mind, emotion/affect, and related areas exploring relationships between cognitive science, digital culture, and the human condition.
