pd~convention04 - Call for works

The pd~stammtisch graz is organizing the first pd~convention. It will 
take place in Graz in the week from 27th of September until 3rd of 
October 2004. We aim to program a wide spectrum of presentations 
regarding pure-data, the OpenSource/FreeSoftware realtime computer music 
system by Miller S. Puckette. The program will include technical talks, 
workshops with various levels of expertise and a number of artistic 
works like concerts, installations and interventions. The pd~convention 
is a cooperation between the pd~stammtisch graz, Medienkunstlabor, ESC, 
mur.at and the iem.


We are looking for art installations that are realized with pure-data 
and/or within the context of pure-data. Therefore, this call for 
installations specially targets on the pdcommunity. Since most 
communication of the pd-community and development of pure-data is done 
off-site (via internet technologies), we would like submitted works to 
be installable without the need for the artist(s) to be on-site. Thus, 
works should be technically simple.
the place

The installations will be located in and outside of the 
Medienkunstlabor, which is situated in the Kunsthaus Graz. A tramway 
station is directly in front of the Medienkunstlabor. Therefore, this 
place is highly frequented by both residents and visitors to the 
Kunsthaus that are potentially interested in art.

Indoors installations will be accessible by passengers during daytime, 
outdoors installations are permanently accessible.
