Art.CHI Call for Participation

The Proposal for Artworks: Open call for interactive artworks of any form

The artworks proposed can include many different forms including sound, vision, performance, dance and theatre, as well as works that are not so easily categorized. The proposal should include the following (in CHI EA format):

  *   Description of the work including written texts, images, sound, video
  *   Artist's statement giving background to the ideas and creation process
  *   Inspiration, sources, materials, any research related to the artwork
  *   Artist Profile: short bio, track record including previous exhibitions

Proposals should be sent by email to David England, [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by the following date:

  *   Submission of Proposals: 5th Jan 2015
  *   Notification of Selection: 2nd Feb. 2015
  *   Date of Workshop: 18-19th April 2015

Criteria for Selection

We are looking for novel, thought-provoking, evocative, sensorially-rich interactive art experiences created by a diverse and broad group of creative practitioners. The selection will be based on the criteria listed below.

Originality and Novelty: the proposal should demonstrate work that is highly original, creative and imaginative. It should exemplify novel concepts in surprising and challenging ways that add something to what exists already.

Aesthetics: the work should have a strong aesthetic element and communicate effectively through form, function, behavior and emotion. Aesthetically interesting qualities include features that are pleasing and exciting as well as provocative.

Realization: the work must have a tangible aspect, in the form of an installation, object or art piece that can be included at a reasonable cost. It should be built and executed to a high standard suitable to be exhibited at CHI 2015.

Value: The proposed work has the potential to open doors to new ways of thinking about interaction, evaluation and aesthetics, both in HCI and the Interactive Arts and/or critiques present and emerging forms.
