AUTOMATED

Share

City:

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.

Share

City:

Eligibility:

OPEN CALL TO ACTORS: Looking for actors to collaborate on a unique immersive art exhibition for two nights only on 26 & 27 February in the Old Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey.

The performance is part of a unique immersive art exhibition [INSERT FEELING HERE], an artist reflection on chasing our own emotions, the highs and the lows and making space for everything in between. The aim of the event is to make people feel and experience art becoming part of the creation process rather than observers. The audience will dive into the minds of 11 artists and get immersed into their practice.

We are looking for the following:

- Actors to encourage the audience to interact with immersions and ensure the flow of people from one immersion to the other.
- Actors to act as nurses in a lab room immersion designed to make the audience reflect on emotions, the brain and art
- An actor to impersonate Sigmund Freud in an immersion designed to make the audience reflect on how they feel

There will be a lot of scope for self expression and co-creation as part of the project.
