CALL FOR PROJECTS: extended deadline, *August 2nd*
The sixth edition of make art – in-between design: rediscovering
collaboration in digital art – will take place in Poitiers (FR), from
the 4th to the 7th of November 2010.
make art is an international festival dedicated to the integration
of Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) in digital art.
make art offers performances, presentations, workshops and an
exhibition, focusing on the encounter between digital art and free
*in-between design: rediscovering collaboration in digital art*
Today's market production accelerates the spread of non-critical and
standardized aesthetics, by means of locked top-down distribution
mechanisms and a series of tools that enforce it. At the same time
new forms of methodologies inspired or powered by free software,
participatory practices and peer-to-peer networks are fueling many
Internet subcultures. Some of these emerging practices will lead to
competitive social productions, while other will remain as pure
For example, a common hypothesis is that by adopting production and
distribution methods based on free software and open standards and by
sharing the sources of one's work with others, the collective knowledge
base and aesthetic sensibilities can freely interact to explore
uncharted, hybrid directions which no longer reflect the supremacy of a
single idea. Such an assumption raises several questions:
- Does the sharing of artworks "recipes" and tools help debunk
the myth of the isolated design genius?
- By leaving the possibility of ongoing development and refinement,
is it possible to ever produce a "final" design?
- Can these methods and technologies inspire new forms of creation or
tools, beyond self-referential productions?
- Is it wishful thinking to approach collaborative graphical design
in the same way as an open source software project?
- Is Free and Open Source licensing a catalyst for creation or does
it add an extra level of complexity?
- Can the limitation of one license trigger new forms of constrained
We're currently seeking new, innovative media art and design works and
projects focusing on the above theme and questions:
- graphical artworks and installations
- project presentations
- software and hardware demos
We're also seeking audiovisual performances that will take place
during the festival evenings.
The submitted projects must fit this focus and be made in a free/libre
and open source environment, this includes both its optional
dependencies or production tools and the operating system. We are
asking you to publish the sources of your project under a free culture
license of your choice or release it into the public domain.
Projects that do not meet these criteria will not be considered.
