AUTOMATED

Eligibility:

AUTOMATED

Automated is a digital art exhibition exploring the notion of Automation.

Defined as 'To operate machines or computers that reduce the workload traditionally taken by a human to produce.' Automation can be seen in effect on different levels, as anything made on a computer is defined as automated art, but different technologies, software or tools can vary the workload massively.

Our intention is to present a showreel of new media artists, focusing on digital rather than analogue, featuring artists that use data as their material.

This exhibition will display works of art from the latest mediums of technology, enveloping different digital cultures ranging from gif. art, glitch art, graphic art and generative art - to name a few.

There is a growing world of 'digital art' and it expands past Hockney and his iPad.

Curated by Samuel Morgan

NB: Submission is free. If you are selected, we will ask for a £20 contribution and some of your time. Please read ‘how to submit’ and our FAQs for full details.

Deadline: 23:59 on Sun 22 March 2020.

The sensation of home

Share

City:

Eligibility:

According to the International Migrant Stock 2019 the UN revealed that the number of migrants worldwide has risen by almost a quarter since the beginning of the decade. By 2019, there were 272 million immigrants, 51 million more than in 2010. Over two fifths of all international migrants worldwide in 2019 had been born in Europe (61 million) or in Central and Southern Asia (50 million). So how does this affect the sense of home? Is home where you come from or the place you go? I ask what home means to someone who never lived where one comes from and if home is even a place to locate.

I believe the search of home is deeply connected with the search of oneself, because someone does not always belong where someone started. While for some people the importance lays in the past, for others it is located in the future. Taiye Selasi (writer and photographer) asked a very interesting question during her TED Talk : “What are we seeking when we ask where someone comes from? And what are we seeing when we hear the answer?” We are much more than where we are from. Identity is something triggered by the outside but created by the inside. So when the focus shifts from looking for a locality towards creating a relation, home can be defined as the sum of all experiences which brought one closer to oneself. Home is then no longer on the outside but much more on the inside.

In conclusion, home can be where we come from. It also can be where we go. But by stopping movement, we can not only find the way home but also realise that home is where we are, because home is within.

The exhibiton is addressing artists who challenge the essence of home and reflect on the aspects of existence including ‘rituals, relationships and restrictions’ (cf. Taiye Selasi). Focussing on both praise and critical reflection, „The sensation of home” invites the artists as well as the audience to examine multiple alternatives and unexpected perspectives. What is the aesthetic of home? What does home mean in our multicultural and international societies? And what answers are coming from the artists of our time?

Phantom Perspectives

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Phantom Perspectives explores the relationship between art, science and technology by testing the boundaries of our perspectives. By considering the ocular capacities of the human eye, each artist seeks to tackle perception, whether it is focused on our bodies, our sight, or the walls of the gallery itself.

The multi-disciplinary approach will interrogate our perspectives of reality through an immersive environment. Life is often regimented, controlled and reasonable, bearing the imprint of a socially constructed perspective. Yet, Phantom Perspectives seeks to present the intangible through physical and virtual representations of a new reality that can be attained through the removal of influence.

Subverting the traditional viewing experience, the exhibition presents one that encourages participation and active engagement of the audience. Through this interrogation of perceived normality, we can question our increasingly mechanised society by utilising art to blur the rigid perspectives that can be imprinted on our reality.
