About:
The title of the event, a “Non-ference”, signifies Qubit’s attempt to present a serious and thorough survey of the most creative minds tackling the subject of noise today, without the limited presentation style that exemplifies the typical conference style setting. Conventional formatting, such as paper presentations, question periods, poster sessions, etc., combine to create a divide between the scholars and atendees.

Instead, Qubit aims to consider noise from the perspective of the art itself, eliminating superfluous ritual and approaching it the way Carolyn Christov-Barkargiev summarizes dOCUMENTA(13); a way to “explore commitment, matter, things, embodiment, and active living in connection with, yet not subordinated to, theory.”
