Seeking NYC-based Visual Poets / Artists


Deadline:
Sun May 31, 2015 21:25

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America


LES-based artist seeks visual poets / artists to participate in a public + online art project in the Lower East Side and Essex Market.

Work will be created using my visual poetry app, Poetics, to create texts, photos, and stories connected to LES culture. The process can collaborative, solo, and/or in interaction with the public.

The project is tied into the 75th Anniversary of Essex Market and Lower East Side History Month, supported by the Essex Market, NYEDC and the Artists Alliance.

Sessions creating work will be mostly street-based and experimental, occurring between May 15 and 30th.

A custom Tumblr has been created where a curated collection of the work created will be shown in realtime. The various organizations involved will be highlighting and reposting some of this work.

Courtesy of Essex Market, the Poetics app is free for the month of May. You can download a copy here:

For some background, this is a link to the past artwork / installations leading up to the Poetics software:

INTERESTED?

Please send a link to your work, a short introduction about your interest, contact info, and any questions.

Ideally your background includes text, writing and visual skills, particularly photographic, use of apps and tech, with an ability to channel interaction with people into dynamic compositions of text + image.

A few notes: an iPhone is required. Unfortunately, participation is unpaid…there was a major budget cut. Coffee and food is on me.

LES-based artist seeks visual poets / artists to collaborate in a public art project at Essex Market in the Lower East Side. This is paid work, yes, a poetic miracle.

Dates: May 9th and 30th at the market. Includes prep work and some production in the streets

We will be using my visual poetry app, Poetics, to create visual poems and more generally, channel stories with people flowing through the market.

The project is called Market Poetics, tied to the 75th Anniversary of Essex Market and Lower East Side History Month, both occurring in May, in collaboration with NYEDC and the Artists Alliance.

We will be working within one of the market stalls, also moving in the market and surrounding streets, creating and projecting work as a realtime slideshow on a wall of the market, also online.

May 30th will be a public block party as well so it should be lively.

I’m looking for artists / poets with text, writing and visual skills, particularly photographic, tech savvy, with ability to channel interaction with people into a collaborative compositions of text + image.

Someone from or connected to the Lower East Side is a plus, for channeling local history, language, etc. Fluency in Spanish is also helpful.

For some background, here’s a link to the past artwork / installations leading up to the app software, which is now at version 1.25. It is currently used in over 150 countries, also to teach in schools:
