An exhibition on Synesthesia curated by MA Graphic Design, Visual Arts, Camberwell College of Arts, London
Opening: 25th January, 6pm
Camberwell College of Arts, Wilson Road, SE5 8LU

The neurological condition, synesthesia, challenges conventional views about perception. Those who experience it are able to perceive a richer version of reality, in which certain senses trigger further, otherwise separate, senses. The name synesthesia literally means 'joined sensation', or 'sensation together', as different senses combine, this seemingly irrational coupling will shape the 'Eggshell Clangwave Oscillator System Looking Quiet' exhibition.

A synesthete may perceive letters or numbers as inherently coloured, numbers or dates of the year may be perceived as having a specific location in space or each its own personality, from the mere sight of a motion some synesthetes automatically hear sound. Through language we are used to associating sound with ideas, and the written word is associated with the sound it represents, but for the synesthete further involuntary sensations occur, they experience a deeper connection of the senses.

Graphic design at its richest thrives upon layered associations, the alchemy of a concept becoming form, multiplying the resonance of its meanings, revealing previously unacknowledged connections. A consideration of the highly subjective state of the synesthetic experience encourages an attempt to further these associations, to confuse and contradict the combinations of the senses. For touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing to be interconnected is a defiance of the usual view of reality.The relationship between multi-sensory experiences and creativity could lead to artistic insight - and it is from this departure point that the work of this exhibition is conceived, a new 'joined sensation'.

MAKE ART 2009 - What The Fork?!
distributed and open practices in FLOSS art

make art is an international festival dedicated to the integration of Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) in digital art. The fourth edition of make art – What The Fork?! distributed and open practices in FLOSS art - will take place in Poitiers (FR), from the 7th to the 13th of December 2009.

make art offers performances, presentations, workshops and an exhibition, focused on the encounter between digital art and free software.

We're currently seeking new, innovative FLOSS works and projects: music and audiovisual performances, presentations, software demos, and installations.

This year make art focuses on distributed and open practices in FLOSS art. 'What the fork?!' is about decentralisation. Forking is the new black. Forking, copying the source code of a project and continuing work on the copy instead of the original, used to have a bad reputation. It would split a project and its developer community in pieces, leading to different, often incompatible, projects. Wasted effort, rivalry and developer fights were all associated concepts. This is history. Forking a project with the intention to compete with it is another story, but the freedom to fork enables quick implementation of features and
customization, bypassing acquiring committer status, bugfix or feature request protocol, working in a distributed way, together with others but
not necessarily towards one goal, working from one source, cross-fertilising, inspiring, copying, patching, improving, experimenting, changing direction, and merging. This practice is boosted by decentralised software development tools, such as Darcs, Mercurial and Git. It's not about quick hacks, but about creating room to experiment, letting go of the one working copy and creating a multiplicity of ideas.

Deadline : 15th of July 2009.
For more details, please visit http://makeart.goto10.org/call

Call for submissions: This is not what I wanted Group show in Waterside Project Space in October 2009.

‘This is not what I wanted’ deals with themes of disappointment, boredom, expectation and anticipation, time passing and time-wasting, both in the production and reception of work. The disappointment of the works should not come from their failures (i.e. classically ‘bad’ work is not interesting in this context), and the boredom should be engaged in a sense deeper than that of time-consuming and painstaking craft.

The exhibition will consist mostly of visual artworks, but performative pieces will be considered as well.

Waterside Project Space is a large white-cube/warehouse space in Wharf Road, London N1, and hosts a programme of one-night exhibitions and performance events. See http://petitpoi.net/waterside/

Funding is unfortunately not available at this stage and participating artists will need to cover their own production and transport costs.

Send images of works with some text, proposals for new works, links, bios to Pierre d’Alancaisez at pierre@petitpoi.net.

A.9) Call for submissions: travelling alone

We are looking for submissions of video, 2D and 3D work to be exhibited in ‘travelling alone’, a programme of performance and visual art work at Waterside Project Space in London on Saturday 20 June.

‘travelling alone’ refers broadly to the artist’s journeys – on tour between theatres, galleries, homes, lovers. The relentless displacement, emptiness of hotel rooms and fleeting relationships formed all contrast with an outsider’s perception of the glamour of a jet-setter lifestyle.

The performance part of the evening will be curated by Isira Makuloluwe and the visual work by Pierre d’Alancaisez. We already have four performers who are developing new work, and we are currently looking for submissions of video, 2D and 3D work to complete the installation. There is unfortunately no funding and no artist’s fee can be offered, but limited technical support is available.

See http://petitpoi.net/waterside/
Please send links, images, texts and bios to pierre@petitpoi.net by 14 June.

Making Time
Inspired by the work of artist Tehching Hsieh, we want to work with one artist for one year to explore the idea of time. How might a performance last an entire year? How do we mark time and how does it mark us? How do we document time? How can we make the time to make art?

On one side of A4, propose how you would work with us to create a year-long performance. It might be something you do each day, a series of weekly actions, or take place entirely online. It can blend into your life, or mark a departure from it. You can work alone or with others.

To apply you must be a UK based artist whose practice is live, requires an audience/witness, or addresses the concept of liveness. We actively seek applications from Black and Minority Ethnic artists.

Application deadline: Friday 3 July 2009
For more information, contact Alice Booth (details above) or download attached application form.


The Mark Tanner Sculpture Award is now the largest sculpture prize of its kind in the UK. It is unique in its combination of offering both financial support towards the production of new work and a solo exhibition to an exceptional emerging sculptor.

Application deadline is 31 May 2009

Initial selection is by panel. We are pleased to announce that this year's guest selector is Cornelia Parker .

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS- SAATCHI'S BEST OF BRITISH An Incredible Opportunity for Contemporary Artists

Saatchi’s Best of British, launched by the BBC and The Saatchi Gallery, is a nationwide open submission for contemporary artists.

The website http://www.submityourart.com is now open. The deadline for submissions is Sunday 29th March at midnight.

Following the selection process, six artists will be given the opportunity to work out of a prestigious studio space in East London over the Summer, where they will make work for a group exhibition to be held in London in early September.

This will form the key element of a 4 x 1 hour documentary series for BBC Two, due to be broadcast in the Autumn 2009.


The Summer studio programme will include: - Funded access to facilities and assistance towards material costs in preparation for the group exhibition. - Regular studio visits by some of the most influential figures in contemporary art, including artists, critics, curators, gallerists and collectors. - An intensive programme of professional development through gallery visits, discussions, lectures, technical assistance, and studio visits with professional advisors. - Intensive focus on integration into London and international art networks. - Paid accommodation in the heart of East London with living expenses provided.




In addition to the studio programme and group exhibition in London, one artist will also be given the opportunity to exhibit their work alongside other established artists at The Saatchi Gallery's forthcoming exhibition, 'Newspeak: British Art Now', at The Hermitage Museum, St.Petersburg. The exhibition will also move to The Saatchi Gallery,London at a later date.

The series has been commissioned by the BBC Two Arts Department and will concentrate on the people involved, taking the time to get to know them and to understand how they set about creating their work. At heart this is a documentary series about art: how it's created, how it embodies ideas, and how it achieves value in our culture.

We look forward to receiving your application.

RePlace…: Open Call For Submissions

Following on from the success of no place, an exhibition that focused on place and space, [noplaceprojects*], in collaboration with photographer Mischa Haller, invites participants working in photography and video to engage with the theme, RePlace.

As city dwellers, we are constantly aware of the ever-changing urban environments that are replaced; reinvented; reconstructed and re-arranged. Advances in technology and communication means that many cities are all experienced in similar ways with shared infrastructures and ways of working, regardless of culture and destination.

By aiming to push boundaries in presentation, RePlace is interested in exploring these ideas further, not only in relation to the appropriateness of media to theme, but also in relation to the environment in which we show, where we can play with those issues surrounding the transformation of no place, to place.

[noplaceprojects*] are aiming for a May/June 2009 opening, with a final selection of six-eight participants in early Spring. Venue TBA. Please be aware participants are expected to share costs.

To express interest please email, with supporting visuals and biog to:
liz.helman@dsl.pipex.com or mischa@mischaphoto.com

[noplaceprojects*] are Liz Helman & Polly Gardiner.

I've worked with Rita before on the Bargehouse Show last year - and will be showing work at this show too -
under the name Genetic Moo. There will be a charge for this show (above the initial entry fee) of maybe £100 - £150. this is to cover the cost of hiring the gallery which is a new one in a very popular area (bricklane-shoreditch). This charge depends on the number of people who apply and how many she takes on (the gallery would probably hold up to 15). given the area this is reasonable charge. The main reason for showing is that Rita puts on a good show and the location is good. Rita is also looking to get arts council funding to reduce fees and also finding the artists work as visiting lecturers etc... she's fun to work with and particularily interested in promoting 'digital' art.

13-15 May 2008, Vienna, Austria
Call for Submissions: Deadline 10 February 2008

The Mobile Music Workshop 2008 is the 5th in a series of annual
international gatherings that explore the creative, critical and
commercial potential of mobile music. They are inspired by the ever-
changing social, geographic, ecological, emotional context of using
mobile technology for creative ends. We are looking for new ideas and
ground-breaking projects on sound in mobile contexts. What new forms
of interaction with music and audio lie ahead as locative media,
ubiquitous networks, and music access merge into new forms of
experiences that shape the everyday? Can they change the way we think
about our mobile devices and about walking through the city?

The emerging field of Mobile Music sits at the intersection of
ubiquitous computing, portable audio technology and New Interfaces
for Musical Expression (NIME). It goes beyond today’s personal music
players to include creative practices of mobile music making, sharing
and mixing. The mobile setting challenges existing notions of
interfaces and interaction, stretching music to new creative limits.
The workshop has been at the forefront of this innovative area since
2004. Past editions of the event have taken place in Amsterdam,
Brighton, Vancouver and Göteborg in collaboration with the Viktoria
Institute, STEIM, Waag Society, Futuresonic, NIME and others.

The 2008 edition of the workshop will be held in Vienna, one of the
hotspots in the European for laptop, glitch, and electronic music.
Hosted by the University of Applied Arts, it will feature three
evenings of performances and installations, an exhibition in the
heart of the city, invited speakers, paper presentations, posters and
demo sessions as well as hands-on tutorials. Besides the workshop
proceedings, we will publish a catalogue that will gather key
contributions from the last 5 years. We invite artists, designers,
academic researchers, hackers, industry professionals and
practitioners from all areas, including music, technology
development, new media, sound-art, music distribution, cultural/media
studies and locative media and more to present and discuss projects,
prototypes, applications, devices, performances, installations,
theoretical and historical considerations.


Submission deadline: 10 February 2008
Notification of acceptance: 14 March 2008
Submission deadline for final papers: 14 April 2008
Registration deadline: 14 April 2008


Please upload your submission in any of the three following
categories at http://ocs.waag.org/. Submissions will be peer-
reviewed by a committee of international specialists in the field.


We invite submissions of workshop papers presenting new projects,
approaches or reflections exploring the topic of mobile music.
Potential submissions could include but are not limited to mobile
music systems or enabling technologies, interface design, legal
issues, user studies, ethnographic fieldwork, social implications,
art pieces and other areas relevant to mobile music. Accepted paper
authors will be given a time slot during the workshop for
presentation and discussion of their work. They are encouraged to
bring a demo of their work if possible.

Format: 4 pages in ACM SIG publications format (for templates, see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). More artistic
submissions are free to pay less attention to the academic or
technical detail of the format, and to include more media instead.

Posters and Demos

We also invite the contribution of posters and demos that document
work-in-progress projects or ideas in similar areas of mobile music
technology as the papers. There will be a poster and demo
presentation session where attendees will be able to discuss work
with the authors. The most robust of the demos will be offered the
opportunity to exhibit to the general public during the open sessions
(although this is not mandatory). Posters will be on display for the
duration of the conference.

Format: 2 pages in ACM SIG publications format (for templates, see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). More artistic
submissions are free to pay less attention to the academic or
technical detail of the format, and to include more media instead.

Installations and Performances

We invite mobile art installations and performances in the genres of
mobile music and locative audio. There will be an exhibition space in
central Vienna, and the possibility to show work in the city. There
will also be a series of evening performances/concerts/parties.

Format: Please follow loosely the ACM SIG publications format (for
templates, see http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html)
without too much academic or technical detail and include more media
instead. Please indicate if your project would be suitable for indoor
or outdoor, installation or performance.


The workshop will have both closed sessions for registered
participants and sessions open to the general public. The number of
participants for the closed sessions of the workshop is limited to 50
places. Accepted submitters are given priority, other participants
