Aspect Magazine Accepting Artwork Submissions for its Fall 2003 Edition

BOSTON, Massachusetts, July 15, 2003

Aspect Magazine is accepting submissions for the fall 2003 edition of its biannual DVD publication featuring artists of the west coast of the United States. With the recent launch of Aspect Magazine, cutting-edge experimental artists finally have a magazine that embraces their mediums. Because the full effect of kinetic, time-based, experienced-based, and installation art usually requires a viewer's presence, traditional print media has proved inadequate in bringing such works to a wider public. Utilizing a multi-media format to showcase these works of new media art, Aspect creates a museum experience in the home or classroom. The first volume of Aspect focuses on artists of the Boston Cyberarts Festival and is available directly from the web site.

Aspect's second volume will feature artists from the west coast of the US. The staff of Aspect is asking curators, art critics, and members of the contemporary art community to help assemble and comment on works for the next issue by submitting a work of art on which they wish to provide audio commentary. Due to the format of the publication, the criteria for selection will include both the qualifications of the commentator and the quality of the video submitted. Audio recordings of the commentary will be assembled after the submissions have been selected.

Submissions should include:
- resume of the commentator
- brief notes outlining the contents of the proposed commentary
- video documentation of a work or small group of works by a single artist
- resume of the artist
- contact information for the commentator

Submissions must be postmarked by August 15, 2003 and sent to:

Aspect Magazine
322 Summer St.
5th Floor
Boston, MA 02210

Submitters will be contacted via email no later than August 30th, 2003. Accepted submissions will require an original or digital copy of the master video documentation.
