ASPECT V.19: Communication

ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, a biannual DVD publication, is currently accepting submissions of time-based work for V19: COMMUNICATION.

As the tools of communication continue to evolve, so does language itself. As globalization expands our notion of community and networked culture shrinks the boundaries between public and private, the strategies through which we communicate are thrown into question. In light of this questioning, we are looking for media artworks that address language and communication as their primary subjects. We will review installation, video, performance, sound and any other work best documented in time-based format.

ASPECT asks artist/commentator pairs to submit proposals of time-based work. Commentators may be curators, historians, critics, or educators who can offer a distinct perspective on the work. Criteria for selection will include the qualifications of the commentator and the quality of the work. Audio recordings of the commentary will be assembled after the submissions have been selected.

Submissions must include:

  • Video documentation (less than 15 minutes in length)
  • A brief (100 word) statement regarding the submitted work
  • Resume of the artist, resume of commentator
  • Contact information for the commentator and artist
  • Brief notes outlining the proposed commentary with respect to theme

Submissions must be received by August 1, 2011, sent to*:

ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art
46 Waltham Street, suite 108
Boston, MA 02118
