Evolving Spark Network Exhibition
March 5, 20:00 -- 02:00 and 8 -- 13, 14:00 -- 18:00
V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10

'Evolving Spark Network' by Edwin van der Heide is installed for one 
week in V2_'s exhibition space. Come and visit us during the Rotterdam 
Museum Night or in the following week. An electric spark is the most 
elementary way of creating light and produces the briefest audible 
sound. Edwin van der Heide took inspiration from these facts in 
developing this spectacular installation, in which sparks fly back and 
forth 15 feet above the audience's heads, flashing and crackling.



Call for Proposals Summer Sessions 2011
Deadline for submissions: March 31

V2_'s Summer Sessions are brief themed residencies that allow promising 
young artists to collaborate with V2_Lab developers. We are looking for 
art projects that fit one of the Lab's three areas of focus: wearable 
technology, augmented reality or ecology. Each proposal should be 
conceptually sound and outline a concrete, realistic plan. Your plan 
must be submitted as a video.



Call for Freelance Mechatronics Engineer
Deadline for submissions: March 18, 2011

'Protei' is a fleet of autonomous oil spill cleaning robots. For the 
further development of 'Protei' (June-August 2011), V2_ is looking for 
someone with experience in electronics, mechanical engineering and 
affinity with sailing. The task will be to design and build a full-scale 
prototype for 'Protei' together with an on-line international open
