Remediating the Social
 
CALL FOR SUBMISSION OF ARTWORKS
 
The Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in
Practice (ELMCIP) research 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, highlighting mediating technologies in the formation of
networked communities. There will be a separate call for conference papers
and presentations later in 2011.
 
Conference: 01-03 November 2012, Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh, UK
Exhibition opening: 1 November, 2012, Inspace, University of Edinburgh, UK
http://www.elmcip.net/conference
 
Submissions:
 
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 indication 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 the 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.
