[1] project overview

In May 2003, Stasisfield will release its second compilation CD-R in the sonic planar analysis series. the audible still-life : sonic planar analysis : 02 will contain sound pieces based around a common theme featuring contributions by, among others,

jeremy boyle / john hudak / irving + orser / neil jendon

john kannenberg / koura / mou, lips! / jon mueller

plank / hal rammel / trace reddell / sawako / malte steiner

Simultaneously, a complementary digital art exhibition based on the same theme will be launched at the Stasis_Space gallery [http://www.stasisfield.com/space].

Both the compilation CD-R and the online exhibition will explore an interdisciplinary approach to artworks derived from a still-life set-up.

>>

[2] call for works : Stasis_Space exhibition

PLEASE NOTE: This call for works relates ONLY to the online exhibition portion of the audible still-life project.

Pieces for the audible still-life Stasis_Space exhibition will consist of audio portraits of still-life set-ups [no longer than 3 minutes in duration], as well as either a photograph or video clip of the corresponding still-life. Artists may also submit a drawing or painting of their still-life [digital or conventional media are acceptable].

In creating the still-lives, artists should approach their construction in the same manner in which a visual artist would set up a still-life for a drawing or painting. Still-lives should consist of either a single object or a grouping of objects specifically placed together by the artist.

Objects within the still-life should be chosen for both their visual and audible aesthetic value, and should be arranged in a manner that lends itself to visual and sonic exploration. This should NOT be approached as a sculpture, but rather as a grouping of objects from which an artwork will be made. The still-life is a catalyst for creating a finished artwork, NOT a finished artwork itself.

While creating your still-life, keep in mind the following questions:

1. What is a still-life?

2. Can a still-life move? Can it talk?

3. Why should an artist create art from a still-life in the 21st Century?

4. Does a still-life have to contain conventional "objects," or could the definition of "object" be approached from a different perspective?

The audio portion of each submission can EITHER be an untreated field recording of a still-life set-up, OR an audio composition created using sampled field recordings of the still-life set-up.

These recordings should be NO LONGER than three minutes.

>>

[3] submission details + what to submit

+ This will be a juried exhibition. Not every piece submitted will be included.

+ Audio pieces must be NO LONGER than three minutes.

WHAT YOU NEED TO SUBMIT:

1. a photograph or video of your still-life set-up.

1a. [OPTIONAL] a drawing or painting of your still-life, using either traditional or digital methods.

2. Your audio piece [ either an untreated field recording of your still-life or a composition using samples of a field recording of your still-life ]. Audio should be submitted either as an AIFF or WAV file.

3. Please include a short [ one paragraph maximum ] artist statement describing your piece and process.

4. A short artist biography and representative photo/image.

>>

[4] timeline

Target launch date : May 2003.

FINAL PIECES must be delivered ON CD-R ONLY by 31 March 2003.

>>

Stasis_Space call for submissions

call for submissions

[ the palimpsest project > version 2.0 ]

+ ABSTRACT:

Like an audio cassette that has been recorded upon too many times, a
palimpsest shows evidence of its past states of existence while
producing something entirely new with the combination of its inherent
layers of historical material.

The creation of an artistic palimpsest can take on many forms and
cover a variety of subjects. It may pose more questions than it
answers. It may be a thing of beauty or a jumbled mess. But it must
be infused with a sense of history, time and purpose.

The palimpsest project - which began when version 1.0 premiered on 30
September - seeks to create an ongoing series of digital palimpsests,
using an initial body of work as the basis for future work which will
reference each previous layer of content.

+ GUIDELINES:

Artists are asked to visit version 1.0 of the exhibition, located here:

[ http://www.stasisfield.com/space/present ]

Upon viewing the exhibition, interested artists should choose a piece
to rework according to the following guidelines:

1. Taking into consideration the palimpsest concept [a detailed
explanation of which may be found at
http://www.stasisfield.com/space/present/palimpsest/catalog/palimpsest.html],
participating artists should view the original pieces as SURFACES
upon which to create a new work. The surface should be erased, yet
still leave traces of the original work behind. The new work should
be created ON TOP of these traces while allowing them to show through.

2. Careful consideration of issues such as duration, image size
and/or functionality are crucial to the success of the project. The
original piece MUST be present in some way within the new piece in
order to merit inclusion within the upcoming exhibition.

3. While it is preferable that the new pieces remain the same media
as the original [i.e. a sound file should be re-interpreted as a
sound file, an image file as an image file, etc.], exceptions may be
made depending upon the final output.

+ SUBMISSION INFORMATION:

+ To Submit a Proposal:

Please email a proposal (NOT finished work) for your final piece to
space@stasisfield.com. Your proposal should include the following:

1. Your name

2. The name of the original piece you will work from

3. The media of your final piece (i.e. mp3, flash file, digital photo, etc.)

4. A detailed description of your new version of the piece, including
details of the process you intend to work with and how your
additional work will relate to the original piece

+ Deadlines:
All proposals must be received by 6 January 2003. Artists to be
included in the exhibition will be notified of their proposal's
acceptance by 13 January 2003.

+ IMPORTANT:
All accepted work must be received by 17 February 2003.

Final deliverable work will be accepted either on CD-R via
conventional mail or preferably a URL to its location online. Artists
whose works are accepted will receive more details about final
delivery with their acceptance notification.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Stasis_Space Call For Submissions

for our first ongoing exhibition

-| the palimpsest project : version 1.0 |-
------------------------------------------

+++

pa-limp-sest

Pronunciation: 'pa-l&m(p)-"sest, p&-'lim(p)-
Function: noun
Etymology: Latin palimpsestus, from Greek palimpsEstos scraped again,
from palin + psEn - to rub, scrape; akin to Sanskrit psAti, babhasti - he chews
Date: 1825

1 : writing material (as a parchment or tablet) used one or more times after earlier writing has been erased

2 : something having usually diverse layers or aspects apparent beneath the surface

Like an audio cassette that has been recorded over too many times, a palimpsest shows evidence of its past "lives"
while the combination of those inherent historical artifacts produces something entirely new.

The creation of an artistic palimpsest can take on many forms and cover a variety of subjects. It may pose more
questions than it answers. It may be a thing of beauty or a jumbled mess. But it must be infused with a sense of history, time and purpose.

+++

Taking definition 1 above as our starting point, Stasis_Space announces its first ongoing exhibition. the
palimpsest project will act as a storage space of digital history, a granular exercise in artmaking as much about process as content.

+++

Initially, a series of works will be collected and presented which will act as starting points for a series of
digital palimpsests. These pieces will hopefully include at least one of each of the following:

1. Imagery (photographs, paintings, comics)
2. Sound (mp3s)
3. Flash animation/interactivity
4. Digital Video

Our initial exhibition will display these "starting point" pieces. At that time, other artists are invited to add on to the source piece of their choosing while leaving concrete physical evidence of the previous state of the piece. This process will continue gradually over time, with subsequent exhibitions of the re-worked pieces taking
place at various points in the future.

Content suggestions: Although we are leaving the subject matter guidelines deliberately vague, works which display a sense of history (past or present) are preferred.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION:

To Submit a Proposal:

Please email a proposal (NOT finished work) for your final piece to space@stasisfield.com. Your proposal should include the following:

4. A detailed description of the piece and how it relates to the show's concept

Works in all media suited for presentation over the internet will be considered, including (but not limited to): audio, video, flash, shockwave applications, digital photography, traditional or digital painting, essays or any combination thereof.

DEADLINES:
All proposals must be received by 31 July 2002. Artists will be notified of their acceptance by 9 August 2002.

IMPORTANT:
All accepted work must be received by 6 September 2002. Work received after this deadline WILL NOT be eligible for inclusion in the exhibition.
