[Leonardo/ISAST Network] Leonardo Electronic Almanac CFP: Global Crossings (GX)


LEA Gallery cfp: Global Crossings (GX)

** Worldwide Call for Submissions **

Please feel free to spread the word widely:

LEA Gallery Special: Global Crossings (GX)
Guest Curators: Dennis Summers and Choy Kok Kee (gxgallery@astn.net)

The Leonardo Electronic Almanac Gallery
(http://mitpress2.mit.edu/e-journals/LEA/LEA2004/gallery.htm) is inviting
submissions in conjunction with the Leonardo Global Crossings Initiative.
The Gallery is looking to make visible the work of international artists,
professionals and scholars who live and work in a wide variety of situations
where access to established venues for exhibition, display and publication
is limited. Difficulty of access may be attributed to cultural, geographic,
ethnic, institutional or disciplinary diversity, or issues related to the
North/South divide, age, gender, etc. Through this Gallery we seek to
showcase little-known work in the art-science-technology field and to
counter the natural tendency of networks to be inward looking, thus
reinforcing established points of view.

We are looking for work that considers the global earth in some fashion or
another. It can be work that addresses global social, political economic,
spiritual, etc. issues. It can be work that physically or metaphorically
lies in multiple locations on the planet, it can be work that may have
personal relationships to multiple locations on the planet. Or anything else
that loosely falls along the concept of being "global" in nature.

LEA encourages international artists / academics / researchers / students to
submit their proposals for consideration. We particularly encourage young
authors outside North America and Europe to send proposals.

Form
--------

Create a single web page, in any common format that either documents the
work or actually is the work. As long as it is only one page, the work can
take any form. Try to avoid pages that require special or unusual plugins.
Keep in mind that many parts of the world do not have high-speed Internet
access.

Process
-----------

Zip all necessary files into a folder named after the contributing artist.
Send as an attachment to gxgallery@astn.net or if necessary, provide ftp
instructions.

In a separate attachment include:

- 300 word abstract / synopsis / description of work
- A brief author biography / resume
- Any related URLs
- Contact details

In the subject heading of the email message write 'Name of Artist: LEA

LEA cfp: New Media Poetry and Poetics


** Sincere apologies for cross-posting **

** Worldwide Call for Submissions **

LEA Special Issue: New Media Poetry and Poetics
Guest Editor: Tim Peterson (newmedia@astn.net)

The Leonardo Electronic Almanac (ISSN No: 1071-4391) is inviting papers and
artworks that deal with New Media Poetry and Poetics. This category includes
multimedia digital works (image/text/sound) as examined through the lens of
"writing," specifically any of those concerns central to avant-garde poetry
rather than narrative or prose: reader as active participant in the
"ergodic" sense, the use of chance or automatism inherited from movements
such as Oulipo (highlighting the literalized metaphor which automatism
becomes here), and the complex relations between the author, reader, and
computer-as-writer/reader which evolve from that interaction. Any work that
foregrounds the medium as such (for example, web poetry that incorporates
code) is also welcome. We would particularly like to emphasize the "poetics"
of new media writing as well, that is, the point where aesthetics intersects
with politics to create dynamic attempts at social change.

LEA encourages international artists / academics / researchers / students to
submit their proposals for consideration. We particularly encourage authors
outside North America and Europe to send proposals for
articles/gallery/artists statements.

Proposals should include:
- 300 word abstract / synopsis
- A brief author biography
- Any related URLs
- Contact details

Deadline for proposals: 15 Aug 2004

Please send proposals or queries to:
