call for work--Idea Fest--Mersive Tech

  • Deadline:
    Aug. 25, 2006, midnight

Call for work:

Mersive Technologies is building the highest resolution, seamless display ever seen by the public. The display is composed of 80 digital light projectors blended into a seamless image containing 60 million pixels. These pixels will be packed into a display that is 27 feet across and 15 feet tall. The resulting 160,000 lumens of brightness will be seen for many city blocks in the heart of downtown Louisville, Kentucky as part of the 4-day International Idea Festival (www.ideafestival.com).

The display will showcase media from artists and content creators across many domains including science, engineering, medicine, gaming, entertainment, and art. We are looking for media that can take advantage of this increased resolution as well as the public nature of the project. Works selected will reflect both technical and conceptual possibilities presented by the future of high-resolution displays.

Content will be edited into a continuous video loop that will display contributions throughout the 4-day event from 8am to 10pm. Accepted contributors will retain the copyright to their material and will receive acknowledgment on the display, on a printed schedule at the event, and at Mersive's website. All electronically contributed content will be deleted at the end of the event.
