Hi Crumb folks!

I am attempting to put together a book that collects people's individual
diagrams of where they think that new media art in the 1990s 'went'. In
other words, did it merge with the larger art world, spin out into its own
scene, get absorbed into social networking, or something else - and the
curators here obviously are experts in looking for these types of trends in
culture. This is the first email I've sent about this - Crumb is the
mothership of this topic, and it would be wonderful to have people involved.

Anyhow - I'll post the call for submissions below - and I've posted the
call and a FAQ at http://newmediaart.xyz - but please drop me a note if you
have any questions. I'd absolutely love to get a number of experienced
curators here to draw out diagrams of their thoughts and submit something
-- this is a topic that I assume is close to your hearts and practice...
and an excuse for curators to draw up a storm. I'm looking forward to
seeing what you come up with.

Here's the call - feel free to forward it if you like - thanks!

NEW MEDIA ART XYZ
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS (DEC 31 / 2018 DEADLINE)

What happened to new media art in the 1990s? At one point, it seemed
to circulate in its own scene as a cohesive "thing" - but a few
decades later, it's unclear where new media art went and how it
evolved. Did it die, institutionalize into its own festivals or
events, move into the larger art world, get swallowed up by social
media platforms like YouTube or Instagram, or move into experimental
HCI, the maker movement, critical design, or something else? What is
the ‘XYZ’ shape or timeline of how new media art has evolved over
the past 20 years?

"NEW MEDIA ART XYZ" is a collaborative publishing project that
explores ideas about where new media art in the 1990s 'went'. The
project seeks submissions from old and young new media artists,
curators, festival organizers, writers, electronic artists, media
theorists, hackers, haters or others interested in the topic of how
new media has shifted, moved and evolved in the art community over the
past two decades. In particular, the project is looking for
submissions of single page A4 or 8.5" x 11" hand-drawn black-and-white
diagrams that illustrate your concepts of what happened to new media
art since the 1990s. The diagrams can be in portrait or landscape
mode, can use any drawing medium - although pen or marker on white
paper will likely reproduce best. Submissions must be hand-drawn (no
computer aided design allowed), it must not be purely a text-based
piece of writing (a diagram is required), and it must be received by
December 31st 2018. Quick diagrams are welcomed: consider taking 5
minutes and drawing something on the nearest clean sheet of paper for
your submission.

The drawings will be curated by Garnet Hertz, Canada Research Chair in
Design & Media Arts. Hertz will select approximately 50 to 100
drawings, write an introduction, design the book, produce it as a
physical publication, and release it online for free six months later.
The hardcopy version of "NEW MEDIA ART XYZ" will be printed in a
limited and numbered edition of 300 copies, all of which will be given
away for free by Hertz. Free copies will be given to all accepted
contributors, and after handmade copies and free online sources are
released, it may be reformatted into a commercially available book.

Snail-mailed contributions can be sent to: Garnet Hertz, Emily Carr
University of Art + Design, 520 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V5T
0H2, Canada. Scanned contributions should be at 300dpi or greater and
emailed to [log in to unmask] Submissions can also be directly
uploaded at http://newmediaart.xyz.

Hertz's past book projects have included 'Critical Making'
(http://conceptlab.com/criticalmaking/) and 'Disobedient Electronics:
Protest' (http://disobedientelectronics.com). As experimental
publishing projects, these books explore alternate modes of
disseminating knowledge. Approaches include making academic-oriented
handmade bookworks, and giving artists more platforms to speak about
theory related to their work. NEW MEDIA ART XYZ has a diagram-only
policy for submissions in order to give more of a voice to artists
that do not usually express their ideas in writing — and it
encourages writers to draw. More information on Hertz can be found at
http://conceptlab.com/ and more information on this project (and this
call) can be found at http://newmediaart.xyz/.

Consider contributing something by December 31st 2018, and in exchange
we will work hard to do something interesting with it. Contact Hertz
directly if you have questions about this project, and please feel
free to forward this call for submissions to people that have
something interesting to contribute on the topic of new media art.
