CALL to participate at Unleashed

We would like to invite artists, researchers, geeks, and such like to take part in a weekend of collaborative co-exploration of long known or newly to be discovered aspects of media art. Unleashed will take over Apiary Studios in East London and create the opportunity to host or participate on a artistic research projects. In the spirit of D.I.Y, free, and local community we want to help to kick start new or refine existing projects, meet other interested parties, and engage in valuable exchange of knowledge, critique, and experiences.

We are looking for people who are interested to propose and host a project at this event. All projects should use some sort of technology, be situated in the field of media art, and focus on an open and inclusive approach. We are especially interested in projects that either conceive new tools for making art or make use of existing open source/open technology solutions (such as openFrameworks, Arduino, Processing, PD) to create new pieces or performances. Whilst allowing people to access its underlying technology but also engage in a critical reflection on its political, sociological, or art historical contexts.

Each project host can specify his/her own timeline and use of the space for that weekend as well as expected outcome.

We are happy to receive your short proposal (250 words with a suggested time line), no matter how obscure it might be, by the 29th of May to

Location: Apiary Studios , 458 Hackney Road, E2 9EG London

Date of the event: 25.06 and 26.06 2011, 10.00-19.00

Thanks a lot and hope you get involved!
