Tweak is two! Currently in its second edition, Tweak is an  
interactive art and live electronic music festival taking place in  
Limerick City between the 21st and 26th of September 2009. Its aim is  
to promote understanding of the use of technology within our culture  
and to explore contemporary issues (social, economic, psychological,  
aesthetic and functional).

The festival will consist of a 5-day exhibition, (interactive  
artworks, robots and installations) comprising of artworks from  
international and local artists, 3 days of workshops and many  
evenings of live electronic performance.

Digital technology has become a medium that has redefined the arts  
broading horizons and changing practices.  New works that explore  
interactivity and the possibilities opened up by multimedia and  
electronic technologies to create immersive experiences bring  
physicality and play to the digital medium.

We call for submissions from artists and designers who’s work has  
been labelled as ‘new media’, ‘physical computing’, ‘tangible  
interfaces’, ‘digital media’, ‘techno craft’, amongst other titles  
which attempt to define the field.

We are currently accepting proposals for the following categories:
Live Electronic Performance
Cinematic Works
Listening Post

The call for submissions is open from April 15th to July 20th, 2009.  
All submissions should have the participants name, work title and  
technical specifications as well as a work abstract in English  
(maximum of 200) and a brief biography(max of 200 words) about the  
author. Group works should have all members listed on the entry form.  
Please include links to video and photo documentation.

Submissions are open to professionals, researchers and design groups  
of the digital medium.
