CALL FOR ART Data In, Data Out
The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University is seeking submissions
for “Data In, Data Out,” a group exhibition of contemporary art of all media.  Exhibition dates are October 31 through December
16, 2011. $15/5 entries.  Deadline,
Friday, October 7th, 2011.
Curator Jeanne Brasile seeks
artwork that is made using algorithmic processes.  While there is no generally accepted formal definition of algorithm, it
could informally be understood as "a set of rules that precisely defines a
sequence of operations."  Using the above
framework, the set of rules shall be the building blocks that define how an artwork
will appear in its final form.  It also
defines the artists’ creative process.  This
practice is in opposition to an end result in which a pre-determined image is
created through studies.  Included
artwork shall be a visual manifestation met by following a set of rules or instructions
that dictate final visual form through specific acts of sorting, processing or
enacting based on the collected data.  Artwork
is sought in all media to provide a broad interpretation of algorithmically
based art.  Although computer and digital
art will be considered, this is not solely a call for digitally based media.
