One of Telefónica Foundation's main objectives is to promote the
relationship between art and the new technologies. As a part of this goal,
Telefónica Foundation is announcing the eleventh edition of the
international VIDA competition to recognize artistic excellence in the
field of artificial life and related disciplines.
The competition is open to art projects that explore the interaction
between "synthetic" life and "organic" life as a reflection of the field
of artificial life. 572 artists from 32 countries have participated in the
ten previous editions and prizes have been awarded to more than 100
projects which included robots, electronic avatars, chaotic algorithms,
cellular automats, computer viruses and virtual ecologies.
VIDA 11.0 will award a total of 80,000 euros to winning projects in two
categories: one open to already-finished projects and another as an
incentive for production in Ibero-America, Spain and Portugal. The winning
works of art will be exhibited, as usual, at the Telefónica Foundation
stand at ARCO.
The works of art submitted will be reviewed by an international panel made
up by Mónica Bello Bugallo (Spain); Daniel Canogar (Spain); José Carlos
Mariátegui (Peru); Sally Jane Norman (France-New Zealand); Simón Penny
(United States-Australia) and Nell Tenhaaf (Canada). Terms and conditions
of the competition, which is open to participants from all over the world,
are available in Spanish, English, German, Portuguese, Korean and Chinese.
