Call for Artists: Trampoline Platform Event "Territorial Play"
Part of the Tracing Mobility Programme
Deadline for Submissions: Monday 12th April 2010
Trampoline is inviting submissions for a platform event, Territorial
Play, scheduled to take place mid May as part of Radiator Festival's
forthcoming Tracing Mobility programme launching in Nottingham.
Territorial Play aims to illustrate, annotate and animate discourse
around current trends towards a 'mobilised city'. With the emergence
of location aware mobile devices and near ubiquitous access to
electronic networks in urban and rural areas, a new city is forming
beneath our feet.
This dynamic 'hybrid-city', is a city in flux, where ideas of
authorship and ownership are left at the door. What are the cultural
implications of this emergent public domain and what possibilities do
the architecture and protocol of networked space present to affect
change in real space?
We are inviting artists, performers, visualists, filmmakers,
designers, game-players, writers and others to stake claims, occupy
space, command territory, re-imagine the public domain, uncover hidden
terrain and return to our day jobs the next day leaving no trace.
The event will take place over one day, using Nottingham's Broadway
Cinema and Digital Media Centre as the base of operations however we
welcome submissions that engage with the public and spaces in and
around the city.
Submissions should include:
**Images/documentation/video (DVD/CD/VHS in standard format) OR URL to
**A4 Proposal/Description of work
**A completed submission form
