Compact-Impact Night (CIN) is a notorious new media and design exhibition that promotes the latest ideas and creations in technology, and places them in the design and technology store Compact-Impact for public viewing.

The idea behind the CIN project is to encourage new media artists, designers and technologists to create works beyond the prototyping phase and to give them an outlet for presenting their works to the public; be it art, installation, interior design, product design, space design, web, toys, video manipulation, games, or music.
Compact-Impact has an established technology and design presence in New York for over three years. The CIN project, in the production of Doron and the help of Kiho and Yoshimi, the owners of Compact-Impact, aims at bridging the gap between concept and production by displaying artworks in a retail environment.

The Theme of the coming CIN is Games. By ‘games’ we mean small-scale computer games, Internet-based games, technology oriented toys, electronic gadgets, installation-based games, etc. We will accept all formats of games, in the conditions that they are new media based and are retail oriented. We also welcome all kinds of Prototypes.

Please consider the following factors in your work:

* Exhibition space - Artists are encouraged to visit Compact-Impact during store hours for a closer look.

*The works should be “self contained” as much as possible. The gallery can provide only limited technical assistance:
2 LCD projectors
4 PC’s
9 Flat screen VGA/RCA flat screen monitors
Wireless Web connection
Limited audio and video equipment
