How are images translated into text? How is text imaged/imagined?
What is the interface between image and text/text and image?

How are the boundaries established, structured and maintained between image and text?
Participation may include but are not limited to the following:
• Art works
• Papers (short 10 minutes and longer 20 minutes)
• Flash Presentations (5 minutes)
