CALLS FOR NEW MEDIA

Some of these calls will be beyond our abilities, but it is good to know that they are out there, and good to learn about what the cutting edge is shaving away at...

Updated December 18, 2013
The notices are in no particular order, and some of the more recent are far down the page.
Many calls are issued with only a narrow window to the deadline.
When the deadline has passed, the notice is removed.
Calls come from many sources,
With many points of view,
Who are solely responsible for content.
Many calls have more rules and requirements than I have included here, sometimes because there isn't room.
It is always wise to go to the w
ebsite of the issuing organization to check for all pertinent info.

TRANSGRESSING MEDIA
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
CRITICAL THEMES IN MEDIA STUDIES
14th Annual Graduate Student Conference
School of Media Studies
The New School
April 5 - 6, 2014

EXTENDED DEADLINE: JANUARY 15, 2014

trans·gress /trans 'gres,tranz-/

1. infringe or go beyond the bounds

The graduate students of the School of Media Studies at The New School announce a call for proposals for the 14th Annual Critical Themes in Media Studies Conference that will take place Saturday and Sunday April 5 - 6, 2014.

This year,we welcome graduate student theorists, practitioners, and artists to share works and projects on the concept of transgressing.

In the contemporary media climate, the notion of "boundaries," whether defined, fluid, or imagined, has undergone productive shifts in a multitude of social, political, economic, creative, and technological research arenas. Responding to pressures of transi tion, critical media investigations offer formative influences in the buildup and breakdown of boundaries. The Critical Themes in Media Studies Conference invites insights relating to the complex understanding of transgressing media. We wish to showcase papers and artworks, including digital media projects and installations, that explore the notion of transgressing considering, but not limited to, the following questions:

In what ways are contemporary media revising or deviating from established norms by conceiving, perceiving, or disregarding boundaries?

How do emerging media transgress established media?

What about our contemporary culture encourages transgressing?

Do disciplinary boundaries elicit and encourage transgression?

What approaches in media design evoke spatial schisms?

The School of Media Studies at the New School, a pioneer of progressive education, was designed from its inception to be a home for both theory and practice-based scholarship. In keeping with this tradition, we welcome submission of academic papers, artistic works for exhibition, and interactive projects from graduate students across all
disciplines.

Paper and Project Submissions: We ask all applicants to present their work in an abstract of 200-300 words describing the concept and content of their presentation.

All submissions must be received by January 15, 2014.

To submit and for more information, please go to criticalthemes.newschool.edu/2014/



Submitters will be notified of the committee's decision by no later than February 14, 2014.

The conference and exhibition will take place at The New School 66 W 12th Street, New York, NY 11021.

Vector Game + Art Convergence Festival, Open Call for Artworks

Deadline January 1, 2014.

Now in its second year, the Vector Game + Art Convergence Festival is a five-day series of game art exhibitions, screenings, performances, workshops, and panels centred around games as the tool and inspiration for contemporary art making. Until January 1, 2014, Team Vector invites you to submit to its festival programming. Vector 2014 will take place from February 19 to 23, 2014, in Toronto, Canada.

Game art is a diverse field characterized by a wide variety of creative practices. Accordingly, this open call invites submissions from artists working in many different contexts and media. For Vector 2014, we are seeking works that critically address the politics, technologies, representations, and aesthetics of video games. Artists at all stages of their creative careers – from emerging to established – are e ncouraged to submit their work.

Works For Exhibition
Works of all media will be considered for inclusion in an exhibition surveying a wide spectrum of practices within game art. We seek video installations, games, interactive works of new media, print media, sculpture, textile, and more. In particular, we are looking for works that push beyond simple expressions of fandom, and which explore the convergence of game-making and media art to challenge assumptions about gaming writ large. Formal investigations of the video game medium are as welcome as works that push the broader concept of ‘games’ into the experimental.

Works for Film/Video/Machinima Screenings
For this program, we are looking for work that experiments with the concept of machinima to produce engaging films or videos. Machinima is a moving image art form that involves repurposing computer graphics from video games in the creation of new cinematic work s. Although early machinima was gamer-oriented, it has since been used to create a new form of video art that combines hacker aesthetics with found footage practices. Machinima has also been used by artists to critique and comment upon video game culture, alienation in contemporary culture, death, and many other themes.
The submitted work should make use of videos game footage or video game engines in some capacity. Narrative as well as experimental non-narrative work will be considered, but the narrative work should push the boundaries of traditional/classical storytelling in some capacity. Due to programming restrictions we are looking for work under 20 minutes; however, please contact us if you have made a longer work and and feel that it fits our mandate.

CALL FOR ARTWORKS:
Yoko Ono Fan Club: Call For Works And Proposals

Yoko Ono Fan Club: Call for Works and Proposals
Visual Studies Gallery at UB Art Gallery, Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo


Yoko Ono Fan Club is conceived in the spirit of Fluxus, in the belief that absurdity, play, arbitrariness, and randomness (among other qualities) are forms of resistance to and negation of one-dimensionality–marked by an elevation of Reason above all–as described by Herbert Marcuse in One-Dimensional Man. While the text was published in the 1960s and the forces in play have evolved, we still believe the paths mentioned above to be viable and useful in the present day.

In this spirit we invite works ranging from instructional texts, performance scores, proposals for happenings, performances, and the like, to more traditionally mediated though no-less-subversive works, installations, so-called 'new media', interactive works of all sorts, as well as documentation, propositions, manifestos, papers, and any other sorts of cultural production that are in the spirit of this call for work and proposals. Brief (250 word maximum) statements of intent may accompany your works, to enlighten the feeble and one-dimensionally-suffering minds of the jury. The jury seeks, for this show, to use the gallery space to question its own premises, exhibit difficult-to-exhibit works, and generally bring attention to an otherwise dispersed sort of art. There is a strong desire to stage performances, happenings, and other active sorts of pieces as a regular lunchtime series during the run of the exhibition; works and proposals directed toward this circumstance are encouraged.

Fine Print and Important Details: 

Exhibition location: Visual Studies Gallery at UB Art Gallery, Center for the Arts. By mail: 201 Center for the Arts / UB North Campus / Buffalo, NY 14260-6010
 
Submission deadline: 11:59pm Thursday January 2, 2014 
Notificati ons: on or around Thursday January 16 
Works to be delivered to the gallery by: 4pm Thursday January 30
Exhibition opens: Thursday February 27 with opening reception 5-7pm
Exhibition closes: Saturday March 29
Entry fee: none. See below for instructions regarding shipping.

To submit work for consideration:

Please include the following, omitting or including vital details as appropriate, and submit by email to YokoOnoFanClub@gmail.com
- Email subject should be SUBMISSION - [artist's name]
- Artist's name
- Contact information
- Title of work
- Date of work
- Dimensions/duration of work
- Medium of work
- Media files (jpg, sound, brief video, or other as necessary to present/represent the work, not to exceed 25MB)
- Statement of intent, if desired
- Works submitted must be ready to hang or display, as appropriate.
 
Jury/Cu ration:
The juror and curator and author of this absurd-and-earnest call is Julie Rozman, second year MFA candidate in the Department of Visual Studies, and Curator and Gallery Manager for the Visual Studies Gallery at UB Art Gallery.
 
Shipping, insurance, and disposal:
Artist is responsible for any and all fees associated with roundtrip shipping and insurance of materials.  Should the Artist fail to provide written instructions subject to approval by the UB Art Gallery for the dismantling, removal, and return shipping of the work by 4pm April 11, 2014 or fail to provide required assistance for dismantling the Work, it shall become the property of the Gallery, which may utilize or dispose of the work as it may see fit.
 
Permissions and paperwork:
Completion of the requisite forms and releases, including copyright, is required, and will be forthcoming. There is also a desire to create a published representation of the exhibition. Accepted artis ts agree to their works' inclusion, with attribution, in such a publication.

CologneOFF X - 10th Cologne International Videoart Festival
"Total Art


Founded in 2006, Cologne International Videoart Festival is celebrating in 2014 its 10th festival edition
During 10 years, CologneOFF was supporting "art & moving images" and and encourage artists to use this exciting medium creatively.
For Cologne International Videoart Festival, CologneOFF X is representing the final festival edition, afterwards Cologne International Videoart Festival will continue as an exhibition format of artvideoKOELN international in the framework of its global activities of "art & moving images".

TOTAL ART
CologneOFF X ist standing under the theme of "Total Art", showing video as a multi-facetted artistic audio-visual medium, which is executed solely by its creator, including filming, cutting, editing, composing, post-priducing etc, thus the whole creation in one single hand.
The digitalization of video made it only possible, that artists can create such a "total art" work, due to the affordability of the entire production. It is not even necessary to have the most advanced professional equipment. A creative person can use even cheap production tools for creating excellent art works.

But, "Total Art" is not only related to the creative production of a video, but also to the artistic contents, encouraging submitting artists to use all their creativity to go steps forward in exploring the artistic potential of video.

CologneOFF X is
- looking for art works using video as a medium in all its variety, but for submitting only single channel videos are eligible, a hybrid type of work which can be used for different presentation forms like screening, projection and installation.
- expecting new and experimental artistic approaches in transforming essential issues of human existenc e into the language of the "moving images".
- inviting film & video creators - to submit up to 3 videos (max duration 10 minutes, exceptions possible)) in following categories -->
(experimental) film - videoart - documentary, whereby animated and very short (60 seconds) forms are particularly encouraged.
Only online submissions are eligible.

More details, the regulations and entry form can be found online on

CALL FOR PAPERS:
Media-N, Journal Of The New Media Caucus, Is Pleased To Announce A Call For Papers For Spring And Fall 2014 Editions.

Media-N, Journal of the New Media Caucus, is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for spring and fall 2014 editions.

This is a single call for two consecutive editions on the theme of "Art and Networks," to be published spring and fall 2014 respectively. Below are details about each edition’s submission timeline and particular focus within the theme - READ ON!

TITLE OF THE EDITIONS
Art & Networks: Revealing, Critiquing and Composing Global Infrastructures” Edition One - Hardware ---- Edition Two - Software

1) Edition One / Hardware
deadline for proposals: 11/15/13

2) Edition Two / Software
deadline for proposals: 06/15/14

GUEST EDITORS
Dr. Meredith Hoy & Dr. Kris Paulsen (Edition One - Hardware)
Kevin Hamilton & Terri Weissman (E dition Two - Software)

Media-N Editor-in-Chief
Pat Badani
.................................................
GENERAL DESCRIPTION Editions One & Two

“Art & Networks: Revealing, Critiquing and Composing Global Infrastructures” -
Our telecommunications infrastructures are composed of multiple layers, and serve as grounds for conflict at multiple scales. To address networked infrastructure through art or scholarship is to make visible both the material, physical supports of everyday telecommunication, as well as its informational processes, its necessary protocols for organizing knowledge, sensation, and labor. As in all infrastructures and sociotechnical systems, these two layers - the physical and the informational, the hardware and the software – are interdependent, and result from simultaneous, sometimes even conflicting, interests at work in their construction. For 201 4, across two consecutive editions, Media-N will explore how artists engage, visualize, study, and critique these processes of formation.

The Spring edition will focus on the physical structures of these channels, and the networks they construct; the Fall edition will address the knowledge protocols and epistemes necessary to networked information, and the archives that emerge. Both will explore the role of visualization in knowing our shared networks.
........................................
........................................

Edition Two / Software
Co-Guest Editors:
Kevin Hamilton (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign)
Terri Weissman (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign)

Whereas the first edition of this series on Art and Networks seeks papers that examine the physical components—cables, satellites, and o ther built structures—that make global telecommunication transmissions possible, the second edition seeks essays that focus on the seemingly invisible conventions, protocols, languages and knowledge structures that shape contemporary networked life. The storage and retrieval of digital files, multiple forms of instant communication, remote monitoring of international events, 6.5 trillion in daily foreign exchange transactions—all of these actions also depend on technologies that are intrinsically intangible: graphical user interfaces, norms of use,knowledge taxonomies, mathematical algorithms, and so on. While artists, scholars and critics of digital media have addressed these aspects of digital life as modes of representation, they have spent less time understanding how these intangible components function within larger flows of commerce and communication.

Part II of this series of Media-N thus seeks to address these issues by turning attention, for example, to the way the jpeg image compression format functions not only as a particular approach to visual phenomena, but also as a way of facilitating the flow of such phenomena between users. Or, how, for instance, have artists visualized the linguistic dynamics of online social space? What have we learned from artists about the influence of software development protocols and processes on everyday consumer experience? Visualization designers such as Wattenberg and Viegas showed us the knowledge structures and taxonomies at work over time in Wikipedia editing processes; who is doing the same for the filters at work in search algorithms? Artists such as Stephanie Rothenberg or Andrew Norman Wilson have brought to light the hands of labor in global digital trade—who else is making tangible the routinely intangible components of virtual exchange? We welcome submissions that address these or other related topics, histories, or critiques.

TIMELINE for Submission for Edition Two / Software
June 15, 2014: Deadline for submission of abstracts/proposals.
July 15, 2014: Notification of acceptance.
September 15, 2014: Deadline for submission of final papers.

ABSTRACT GUIDELINES
Please send your submission proposal with the following information, by email to: kham@illinois.edu AND tweissma@illinois.edu with 'Media-N Submission' and your name(s) in the subject line.

Include your Email(s), Proposal Title, 300-500 word Proposal Description, up to 3 page Resume, and your Title/Affiliation (the institution/organization you work with - if applicable, or independent scholar/practitioner.)

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
“In My Computer” Book Series – Call For Proposals 2014

The Link Center for the Arts of the Information Age invites you to submit proposals for its ongoing book series “In My Computer”.

One's computer is a repository of valuable things that, for some reason, never went public: unpublished projects, drafts, short notes, private emails, unreleased interviews and texts, tales, poems, quotes, image or spam email collections, whatever.
If you think this content may be significant also for a wider audience and may work well in book form, the book series “In My Computer” may be the right jar for your jam.

“In My Computer” is a series of books collecting unpublished material available in your computer, produced by Link Editions and available for free download in digital form and in printed form through the print-on-demand (POD) service Lulu.com and Amazon.com

. The concept wants to give value to the contents stored on our computer, a personal a rchive that is, from time to time, a den for our researches, a private diary, a place of accumulation and storage of digital contents. Since the distinction between public and private, online and offline is becoming increasingly blurred, the series is open to contents circulated online in any form. In this perspective, the book is an extraordinary tool for the rematerialization of the ephemeral, for archiving the impermanent, and for ordering the digital chaos we are living in.

Link Editions (http://editions.linkartcenter.eu/) is a publishing initiative of the Link Center for the Arts of the Information Age.

Take a look at our selection of the best new artists' tools for 2013 below.



EVENT | PROJECT LAUNCH:
A New Feminist Journal Of Art And Digital Culture

.dpi gets a makeover! (beta version)
Current issue's themed section: Hacktivism



Founded by artist-run-centre Studio XX in 2004, in Montreal, the publication .dpi has recently undergone a major transformation in order to assert itself as a feminist journal of art and digital culture. In 2013, with continuing administrative and technological support from Studio XX, the journal .dpi became an independent project, with a new platform (beta version) and new team including permanent editor in chief, Sophie Le-Phat Ho, and a new editorial committee composed of Julie Alary Lavallée, Amber Berson, Esther Bourdages, Christina Haralanova, Corina MacDonald, Katja Melzer, Candace Mooers and Deanna Radford.

In a time when social gains are threatened, funding for artist-run-centres is precarious, and the need for intelligent critique is urgent, the new crew at .dpi wishes to respond to a real need for the creation of an interdisciplinary community of those at once curious and critical of technologies, feminisms and art.

Bringing together a dozen local and international participants, .dpi 27 presents a themed section on hacktivism coordinated by Christina Haralanova, a feminist activist and researcher who is interested by freedom in technology and open-source software. "Hacktivism: the Art of Practicing Life and Computer Hacking for Feminist Activism" brings together unique perspectives and critiques of the current state of hacktivism, a fusion of hacking and activism.

The journal is a platform where the bold, critical, engaged and curious contributor may question issues related to feminism (in all its varieties), art and digital culture.

Square Inches Of Love - Open Call For Submissions Until Exhibition Space Is Full

 

OPeX studios, an L.A. architectural design company, invites you to Share your Creativity in Square Inches of Love. The Square Inches of Love project has the novel ambition to weave the digital and physical worlds through the mediums of architecture and design into a demonstration of the effect the digital revolution and increased virtual world interactions are having on the very concept of “space” and its use. The project’s perceived size and an open participation means of data collection will also demonstrate the power of collective creativity and the ability of virtual efforts to render great outcomes towards a socially sustainable future. In this project’s design, the model generates multiple levels of value from collected contributions which spans across business, pleasure, creativity, expression, education & philanthropy. See what happens with submissions, view renderings of the touring physical exhibition to be created from collected submissions, and decide what you would like to contribute.

Call for Submissions: Anomalous Press: Call for literary arts

From: ericamena Link: http://www.anomalouspress.org/

Location: AnomalousPress.org
We accept submissions all the time.

       Anomalous Press, a new multi-format multi-media literary arts journal, welcomes submissions of literary works of texts (poetry, fiction, nonfiction and translation) and especially seeks hybrid, muti- and new media, audio or video literary works, and images.
       We realize literary is a slippery term, and we most assuredly do not mean the fifth definition as listed on Dictionary.com. Neither do we think of the term as exclusive—H.G. Wells and Anaïs Nin created great works of literature. If it’s good, it’s good. Period.
       We want works that challenge us, and challenge you, to move outside our comfort zones, individually and collectively, and socially and anti-socially, and liminally and subliminally, and into spaces new and old and musty and fresh.
       Full guidelines available at anomalouspress.org

        AKTIONSART ( http://www.aktionsart.org ) is pleased to announce the launch of Feature – a monthly exhibition series curated by Julia Fryett showcasing contemporary artists working in film, video and new media.

        Feature is presented both on an online cinema, MUBI Garage ( http://mubi.com/garage ), and Big Screen Project http://www.bigscreenproject.org , an outdoor cinema in midtown Manhattan.

chaba sound review
        The aim of this blog is to provide those sound artists who prefer to release their work in the digital-only realm a small filter for content in the experimental/unusual/sound art categories of audio releases. I believe that while CD releases will continue to be an important format for distribution, digital releases will begin making a foray into the realm of the everyday.

        Submissions for review may be e-mailed to: chaba @ duchamp.inbox5.com

Best,
John
