The call for works for the second event Network is still open,
:: Network - 20/11/07, call for works ::
A network is any system of interconnected points / locations, nodes,
which become greater, augmented, than when in isolation. While
emphasis is most often placed on the nodes, it is the connections /
links / lines / flows, the spaces between, the hinterland of the
network, and their resulting mesh / matrix, which provides the site,
means and context for the networks ability to transfer and
transform. Similarly art can be thought of as a space in-between:
“The work of art occupies a pivotal point between two sets of
behaviour, the artist’s and the spectator’s. It is essentially a
matrix, the substance between. It exists nether for itself nor by
itself.” (Ascott, R. 2003, Telematic Embrace)
On November 20th Open Ear will host an event curated by Garrett
Lynch (http://www.asquare.org/) entitled Network which will present
performances on this theme. Sound and visual artists / groups
working with networks as a thematic or technical element to their
work within live performance contexts are invited to contribute to
the event. Proposed performances can include the use of networks to
dynamically generate or enhance performance, to collaboratively
create a performance through a network, to discuss the nature of
networks and their impact on society etc. All proposed performances
are required to be audio-visual, audio or visual with selection
preference given to audio-visual works. Performances can last up to a
maximum of 30 minutes each.
As the event is free we are unable to offer individual payment but
will provide access to a supply of equipment (please include a list
of requirements in your proposal and we will attempt to cater for
this) at the venue, suitable refreshments and possibly accommodation
if required. Contributions to the event will be included in the DVD
of all six events published by the C3U Music Label later in 2008.
Proposals should take the form of a word / pdf / rtf / txt document
(two pages maximum) with:
1) A description of the work (500 words maximum).
2) Images to give us an idea of the proposed work.
3) A full list of required equipment (please note that the event will
host several performers so complex configurations involving lengthy
set-up times will not be catered for).
4) Urls to previous examples of work online.
5) A short bio (200 words maximum).
6) Artist(s) / group / performer(s) name and contact details.
Please email proposals as attachments (not pasted into the email) to
Garrett Lynch (garrett [at] asquare dot org) no later than 12pm
(GMT), Friday 02/11/07.
