Washington project for the Arts is currently accepting submissions for two open 
calls as part of Experimental Media 2012. Consisting of an exhibition of interactive
installation works, a video screening program, and a series of workshops, Experimental
Media 2012 will explore recent developments in the field of art and technology, 
including the  growth of open source software and hardware, the emergence of grassroots
 do-it-yourself hacker communities, and the increasing ubiquity of  networked devices
in daily life. While highlighting the creative  potential of this new technology,
Experimental Media 2012 also seeks projects that explore the broader social and 
cultural implications of these rapid changes.

An open call for interactive installation to be included in an exhibition at Artisphere
from April 12 through May 20, 2012.

While every artwork is interactive, this open call is searching for works that highly
consider elements of interactivity (in the broadest sense of the term), including
(but not limited to) immersion, community activation, artificial intelligence, behavior,
and experiments in sensor-based and computer vision environments. Some subjects 
to consider include notions of the multiple self, information visualization, digital
surrogates, emergent systems, digital nomadic systems, simulations and simulacra,
networks and surveillance, charged environments, bioart, and consciousness modeling.

An open call for video-based artworks to be screened at The Phillips Collection 
and at Artisphere [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=kx4z7fcab&et=1109068020042&s=5027&e=001RKKOxeoCJ-lvcBn_PtBAxmfIexpoo_zEqOevtEn3P3vz5agwLsFCIQyVuBnPAfplbTSePUeIh8iybnkU8SZyO-bv8ivJBApnG_MZ3_odokvmJaYetVA15w==],
in April and May of 2012. From the videos selected for the screening, one work will
be awarded the 2012 Kraft Prize for New Media, a cash prize of $750.

Within the broader context of developments in art and technology, this call seeks
video work addressing the ever-increasing flood of information and data in contemporary
life and the tendency to make connections and exchange information across disparate
fields of thought. These may include but aren't limited to exchanges and connections
that are physical, transmitted, informational, emotional, cognitive, social, political,
economic, cultural, chemical, molecular, electric, fluid, sonic, quantum, virtual,
or identity-based.
While the Experimental Media Exhibition will feature interactive works that employ
technology, artificial, and natural systems to build experiences through manipulating
the flow of information, the Experimental MediaVideo Screening will include works
that use video as a medium to similarly explore characteristics of this new landscape
of data flow, perception, and exchange between systems, whether human, gestural,
 cultural, chemical, political, or virtual. READ THE FULL CALL>> [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=kx4z7fcab&et=1109068020042&s=5027&e=001RKKOxeoCJ-lEVe-oZRhciL_AncqZONpkdHOYXv9e9N_64vVls5JHZbNK6r0_GImCLCa3st8lEM1Pwd7wz3lUCnxyJcbP_MeD3UQWT66SY8Je6lkpGG1BWkCHD45l4l_1NQZahKsrCxXhkjPhhUKYsg==]
