BIO
Joseph DeLappe is a media artist and educator. Working with electronic and new media since 1983, his work in online gaming performance, installation and sculpture have been shown throughout the United States and abroad. His work engages politics, war, work, play, protest and human/machine relations. Much of his work over the past decade involves taking creative agency in online shooter games and virtual communities. The intent is to create works that are formally and aesthetically engaging while conceptually connecting with the everyday; to reify the ordinary into the extraordinary; to intervene in social and political realities, both real and virtual.

His works have been exhibited throughout the world. Projects have been written about and/or he was interviewed in the following media contexts: Wired.com , Salon.com , The New York Times , CNN domestic and international, NPR (National Public Radio), CBC (Canadian Broadcast Company), and The Sydney Morning Herald . He is a native of San Francisco and has resided in Reno, with his wife and twin daughters since 1993.

There is no final deadline for this project, March 19, 2008, the fifth anniversary of the start of the Operation Iraqi Freedom, will serve as an initial first deadline for the jurors review of proposals. Works will also be freely rated by the viewing public on each individual artist's page.

Jurors include:
-Dr. Nadje Al-Ali, Centre for Gender Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, UK
-Yaelle Amir, Independent Curator and Writer, New York City, USA

Guidelines for Entrieshttp://www.iraqimemorial.org/proposals.html
This project seeks to highlight conceptions of memorials in the broadest context possible. From individual gestures of personal remembrance to monumental concepts functioning on a global scale - all ideations of memory that address the issue of Iraqi civilian deaths are welcome. From sketches on napkins to fully detailed digitally animated walkthroughs - the diversity of approaches to expressing your ideas will help to create an engaging and thought provoking repository of memorial concepts.

Who May Submit Proposals?

All artists, designers, individuals or collaborations are welcome and invited to submit proposals. You must be at minimum 18 years old to participate in this project.

Materials/Media/Processes
There are no restrictions in regard to materials, media or processes - this project seeks to encourage proposals from across the diverse spectrum of disciplinary and cross-disciplinary artistic practice. This open call for proposals is open to all creative practice, including but not limited to: visual artists, performing artists, designers, architects, audio artists. Artists and designers should think as broadly a possible in considering the proposed use of materials, media and processes. All artistic processes will be considered in this context (permanent/temporary, physical/ethereal, object/performative, formal/interactive, traditional/relational, analog/digital).

Site
It is up to each artist to define the context(s) as to where the proposed memorials would ideally be realized. There are no geographical, architectural, dimensional or spatial restrictions of any kind - as there is no defined location this is completely open to individual interpretation and imagination (physical/virtual, local/global, permanent/temporary). Artists are encouraged to consider the identification of site(s) as fluid yet critical to the proposal process.

What to Submit?

Artists are invited to use the format best suited to represent their individual memorial concepts. This can include, but is not limited to: drawings, diagrams, architectural renderings, scale models, photographs, descriptive texts, audio files, video or animated walk-through - whatever format most creatively represents the memorial concept.
