*Open Call for Artists: Black Box 3.0*

Eligibility: International
Location: Seattle, Online
Application Deadline: May 31, 2016 at 5PM PST

Festival Dates: September 21 - October 2, 2016
Hashtag: #BlackBoxing
Shareable URL: bit.ly/blackboxing

Artists from around the world working in any medium are invited to submit
work to Black Box 3.0. A multi-platform program of significant scope, Black
Box is an annual international arts and technology festival produced by
Aktionsart in Seattle. The festival explores how technology is transforming
the arts, culture, and public life.

Black Box is a platform for the most talented and innovative artists,
filmmakers, designers, curators, technologists, hackers, and makers in the
Pacific Northwest and beyond. The festival features new work by
international contemporary artists who are collected by major museums and
routinely featured on the international art circuit. It is also an
essential voice for emerging talent. Black Box is open to all arts
disciplines and mediums, including visual art, performance, design,
fashion, music, folk and traditional arts, literature, media, film,
research, theater, and more.

Core programming is nomadic and experiential, presenting projects in
unexpected spaces throughout the city. The tightly curated festival
includes exhibitions, screenings, discussions, workshops, installations,
performances, and hybrid formats. An online channel - which received over
25,000 visits in 2015 - premieres and distributes festival content to
audiences in Seattle and beyond.

Black Box collaborates closely with a selective partner network of
Seattle’s most adventurous institutions. Past partners include Seattle Art
Museum, Seattle International Film Festival, University of Washington,
Seattle Center, and Cornish College of the Arts. In 2015, Black Box
exhibited over eighty artists including new work from Pierre Huyghe, Ed
Atkins, Sue de Beer, Phil Collins, Josh Kline, Gillian Wearing, Roman
Signer, Zach Blas, Petra Cortright, Lisa Tan, Stan Douglas, Knut Asdam,
Kalup Linzy, Robin Rhode, Ellie Ga, and Julien Prévieux.

There is no overarching festival theme beyond the umbrella of “arts and
technology”, which is intentionally open. Attention will be closely paid to
intellectually rigorous and socially urgent ideas, emerging technologies,
and experimental projects that present new modes of creating and thinking.
We are interested in works that respond to the following themes, tools or
mediums: augmented and virtual reality, gaming, expanded and immersive
cinema, social media, architectural mapping, generative software, systems,
mobility and mobile apps, wearables, digital labor, interactivity, data
visualization, experimental and interactive documentary, surveillance,
biotech, holography, space exploration, 3D printing, robotics, production
and distribution tools/platforms, artificial intelligence, machine
learning, hypercompliance, deep web, blockchain, digital culture,
sustainability, innovation, disnovation, transmedia, utopia.

Technology disrupts the arts, but how do the arts disrupt technology? What
is the role of artist and creator in an increasingly mechanized world? How
can artists leverage new tools to produce, distribute, create access, and
build audiences for their work? How does technological innovation and
disnovation shape public life?
