dorkbot Seattle Dorkbot call for proposals

From Seattle Dorkbot:

We are pleased to announce the call for proposals for Seattle Dorkbot’s art exhibition “Strange Things” is up! As in previous years we are seeking a broad range of art that uses electricity as a major component: interactive installations, art that borders the line between physical and digital art, kinetic sculpture, large scale collaborations, lighting installations, web- based art, networked art, ubiquitous computing…to name a few. This year we are also inviting artists to create and collaborate on works that explore the theme “Emergent Communication.” Artists are encouraged (but not required) to work in groups to build pieces that communicate with each other (and potentially the viewers and environment) in novel ways, to create a larger system that’s greater and more complex than its individual parts.

2009 Theme: Emergent Communication
This year we are also inviting artists to create and collaborate on works that explore the theme “Emergent Communication.” Artists are encouraged (but not required) to work in groups to build pieces that communicate with each other (and potentially the viewers and environment) in novel ways, to create a larger system that’s greater and more complex than its individual parts. Methods of communication are up to the artist(s); you could use anything from two pieces bumping into each other to complex network protocols sharing media. Artists will be encouraged to document how their pieces communicate so that others can create works to join in the conversation.
Meetings will be held in Seattle starting in January to spark ideas and connect artists and engineers, and a wiki will be made available for sharing and documentation. If you have an interest in participating in this part of the show contact Eric McNeill at strangethingsseattle [at] gmail.com .
