Lucida Lab call for installations and interventions


Deadline:
Sat Mar 15, 2014 17:30

Location:
vancouver, Canada

Vancouver-based art and curatorial collaborative Lucida Lab is looking for artists, designers, industrial designers, animators, illustrators, media and installation artists for the upcoming Eco Fashion Week event in April 2014. Lucida Lab will be curating a series of performances and artistic interventions for the Spring edition of the event, scheduled April 27th – 29th, 2014. Celebrating their 8th season, Eco Fashion Week (EFW) informs and inspires the fashion-conscious, and sustainable-minded, alike, in a way that harmonizes beauty and the environment.

The theme for both performances and artistic interventions focuses on a “68lb challenge,” a weight that represents the amount of clothing discarded by the average Canadian every year. What does 68lbs of textile waste look like to you? How do you propose a response to the 68lb challenge?

Consideration will be given to projects that fit the Eco Fashion Week mandate, such as waste, sustainability, recycled materials, creativity, aesthetics and innovation. There are possibilities for installations, works that respond to the 68lb weight in different media, public interactive pieces, or pre-existing works that fit within the criteria for this project proposal. For all applicants, please note that the work must be transportable and must be installed on location within a couple of hours.

Successful applicants will be provided with access to free materials from Eco Waste (including wood, concrete, brick), a production residency with the Vancouver Parks Board Field House Artist in Residence program (thanks to the support of LocoMoto Art Collective), press and promotion before and during Eco Fashion Week, all-access tickets to the event, complimentary drinks and a gift bag valued at $100.00

Send your ideas and proposals along with your name and contact information to lucidalab@ecofashion-week.com or use the contact form below.
Deadline is March 15th at 5:00pm. We thank you for your submissions, but due to the volume of submissions, only those shortlisted will be contacted. Successful applicants will be notified by March 30th.

Initiated by Studio XX in 1997, and evolving as quickly as technology itself, the HTMlles Festival is an international platform dedicated to the presentation of women’s independent media artworks from all facets of contemporary technological creation, including but not limited to: digital storytelling, cyber art, short film and video art, audio and electronic art, installation, locative media, 3D animation, game art, virtual reality, electronic publishing, design, performance and interdisciplinary practices.

HTMlles 2010:

From IMAX to the Canadarm, to Softimage, MotionBuilder, Maya and the BlackBerry, Canada’s technological innovations have changed the world. Inspired by Studio XX’s 2008 TransCanada Pipeline Tour, and Canada’s central role within a worlwide context in 2010, the 9th edition of HTMlles will focus on the work of Canadian/Quebec-based media artists exploring concepts of . HTMlles maintains an open and international focus.

As we resist - or converge with - a globally interconnected future, is it relevant to define our origins and explore common values? Can we have more than one at any given time, or no at all? Whose rights are recognized in what homelands?

As a nation, how do we imagine new forms of connection to expand our parameters of citizenship, identity, language and our understandings of democracy and interactive communities?

What defines a place of belonging? When and how do we belong? How do we create a secure home and when is it time to leave it?

What role do Open Source methodologies (F/LOSS) and digital technologies play in creating a sustainable future? What do digital technologies reveal about the state of the natural world and our perception of landscape?

HTMlles seeks stellar media works focusing on woman-centered experiences that are shared and distinct within a national context and/or which highlight the development and richness of Canadian/Quebecois media art practices.

HTMlles invites proposals of audience-ready works from emerging, mid-career or senior artists and curators based in Canada or Quebec. Collaborations with international artists or international works about Canada-based artists are also eligible.
