Call for participation.

operate at the junction between awareness of art history and a willingness
to approach a modern world. This is embodied by the use of contemporary
technology. Image, object, body and communication. Integrating photography
and video by touch up and mixing ...

The art scene in general in DC is very diffuse. Unlike other cities in
which I've lived (Toronto, Buffalo, Pittsburgh) there aren't any strong,
lively arts organizations that act like glue to bring the community

for me to enter, as I am a writer, and one of those theory people who can appear
