The voting for the 2005-2006 Rhizome Net Art Commissions is now
underway. If you are eligible to vote, please go to http://rhizome.org/commissions/voting/
to vote for your favorite
This is the second year we have used this process, and last year it
went off without a hitch. My only major problem with last year was that
voter turnout was sort of low, so please spend some time to evaluate
the applicants' proposals and let your vote be counted. After all, this
is not another silly online poll. Your vote will have a genuine effect
on the decisions regarding who will be awarded ... so if you care at
all about the proposals you like, and the art you like, getting a
commission, please take the time to vote!
I have emailed all the candidates, and asked them:
+ not to participate in list discussion on any of the work under
+ not to change their proposal sites during the discussion in an
attempt to win more votes.
For everyone else, please remember to be polite in discussing the
submissions. We want people to talk openly about the proposals, but we
also have to keep in mind that in any open call like this, you're going
to get proposals that vary in quality. So please accentuate the
positive. We want this to be a pleasant experience for every artist who
submits a proposal.
Thanks in advance for participating. And please email me if you have
any questions about how this whole thing is supposed to work.
