Remediating the Social [uk Edinburgh]

Remediating the Social :: Conference: November 1-3, 2012, Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh, UK :: Exhibition Opening: November 1, @ Inspace, University of Edinburgh :: Call for Artworks – Deadline: March 31, 2011.

The Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice (ELMCIP) project invites submissions for an electronic literature and digital arts commissioning programme. Selected works will be presented in an exhibition and performance event as part of the final ELMCIP project conference Remediating the Social in Edinburgh, November 2012.

ELMCIP welcomes proposals for installations, artworks and performances that address how network-based creative practice can effect and reflect upon community formation and the role of creativity in social ontologies. Submitted works should engage “born digital” literary and artistic practices. This can include works that employ generative, interactive, networked and/or hypermedia techniques. Works which could exist without the computer being involved in their production AND diffusion will not be considered. Projects that engage liveness and the performative in media are especially welcome.

Remediating the Social will be hosted by Edinburgh College of Art in collaboration with New Media Scotland and University College Falmouth within the framework of the ELMCIP research project. The event will be held at Inspace, a purpose-built research and exhibition facility at the University of Edinburgh, fully instrumented to facilitate engagement with developments in new technologies, scientific research and creative practice. The exhibition will continue after the conference for three weeks.

The conference programme will consist of expert presentations, across a range of disciplines and modes of inquiry, addressing examples of creative communities that have formed around various practices, media and discourses. Case studies, papers and panels, discussing examples arising from the ELMCIP project and other contexts will be presented. The conference will be e-cast, allowing for remote attendees to freely monitor events and put questions to conference, further highlighting mediating technologies in the formation of networked communities. There will be a separate call for conference papers and presentations later in 2011.

Submissions should include:

• 250 word abstract describing the conceptual and artistic details of the work
• A4 page detailing the technical requirements and budget for mounting the work
• Biographical statement of no more than 250 words

The technical description should include clear indications of technical and other resource requirements, duration (if applicable) and space requirements. Wherever possible the commissioners will seek to ensure that the necessary equipment and resources will be available for accepted works, although this will depend on the requirements of each individual project. Visual evidence of the proposed work, including diagrams, documentation and/or simulations, would be appreciated. This can consist of a web page containing the material, with the URL indicated in the submission, or a PDF appended to the proposal. Submissions will only be accepted electronically.

Proposals will be peer reviewed. Authors and producers of shortlisted works will be notified soon after May 31, 2011, and the curatorial committee will liaise with them to assure optimal presentation and the fit of each work in the overall programme of the event. A final selection of works will follow and a number of proposals will be selected to be supported as commissioned works. This support will only be available for works that have not yet been produced and which the curatorial committee consider to have exceptional artistic quality, thematic relevance and logistical viability.
