call for works

by IOhannes m zmoelnig last modified 2004-07-15 10:54 AM

this is the call for art-installations that are to be shown during the pd~convention04.

pd~convention04 - Call for works - v.2

The pd~stammtisch graz is organizing the first pd~convention. It will take place in Graz in the week from 27th of September until 3rd of October 2004. We aim to program a wide spectrum of presentations regarding pure-data, the OpenSource/FreeSoftware realtime computer music system by Miller S. Puckette. The program will include technical talks, workshops with various levels of expertise and a number of artistic works like concerts, installations and interventions. The pd~convention is a cooperation between the pd~stammtisch graz, Medienkunstlabor, ESC, and the iem.


We are looking for art installations that are realized with pure-data and/or within the context of pure-data. Therefore, this call for installations specially targets on the pdcommunity. Since most communication of the pd-community and development of pure-data is done off-site (via internet technologies), we would like submitted works to be installable without the need for the artist(s) to be on-site. Thus, works should be technically simple.

the place

The installations will be located in and outside of the Medienkunstlabor, which is situated in the Kunsthaus Graz. A tramway station is directly in front of the Medienkunstlabor. Therefore, this place is highly frequented by both residents and visitors to the Kunsthaus that are potentially interested in art.

Indoors installations will be accessible by passengers during daytime, outdoors installations are permanently accessible.

audience:The primary target group of the installations are the ordinary passers-by that do not necessarily have any knowledge of art
