POSTED BY: Fereshteh Toosi | Sat Jun 2nd, 2007 8:51 p.m.

IF AL GORE CAN DO IT, WE CAN DO IT BETTER.

WHAT: Artists and activists are asked to submit outrageous, playful,
somber, or weird slide show lectures (aka Powerpoint/Keynote) about
sustainable living, local foods, carbon emissions, ecological issues,
green design, etc.

CONTEXT: This will be part of a 4-day exhibition called "You're not as
green as you are cabbage looking", in which a Washington DC art
gallery will be transformed into a mock accountants' office (H&R
Cabbage), where visitors will be able to receive a report of their
carbon footprint.

MEDIA: Video documentation of slide lecture/presentation or live
performance of slide lecture/presentation. Running time should be 3-10
minutes.

WHEN & WHERE: Screening of presentations will take place at
Transformer Gallery in Washington DC on Thursday 2 August 2007,
6:30-8:00

WHY: If Al Gore could do it, we can do it better. The presentations
should interpret environmental subjects broadly: taking wild creative
liberties, giving a straightforward presentation chock full of
information, or a little of both. How can we exploit the theatrical,
educational, or absurd aspects of this type of information
architecture?

DEADLINE: Please submit videos (NTSC mini-DV, VHS, or DVD) or detailed
proposals for live performances of your slide lecture postmarked by 20
July 2007. If you propose a live presentation, please keep in mind
that there is no stipend or funding for travel to DC. Only submissions
with SASE will be returned.
