Open Call for Visual Poets/Artists to Collaborate On NYC Market Poetics Project

blogpoet

Lower East Side (LES) New York City artist is seeking two visual poets / visual artists to collaborate on a public art project at Essex Market in the Lower East Side.

Yes, this is paid work! 

Artists and poets with text, writing, visual skills, particularly photographic, who are tech savvy and passes the ability to channel interactions with people into collaborative compositions of text + image are welcome to apply.   Fluency in Spanish is also helpful.

The project is called Market Poetics and is tied to the 75th Anniversary of Essex Market and Lower East Side History Month– both occurring in May in collaboration with NYEDC and the Artists Alliance. Dates: May 9th and 30th at the market. Includes prep work and some production in the streets

This project uses a Visual Poetics app to create visual poems and to channel stories from the people flowing through the market.  The project work occurs within one of the market stalls, as well as while moving in the market and surrounding streets. We will be creating and uploading work to a project Tumblr blog and that will be projected as a realtime slide show on a wall at the market.

Here’s a link to the past public artwork installations that resulted in the development of the Poetics App software, which is now at version 1.25 and currently used in over 150 countries:   http://www.sic.ph/poetics   An iPhone is required, as it’s the sole platform thus far for the app.

INTERESTED? Send a link to your work, a short introduction about your interest and background, and contact information via the email on the site: http://www.sic.ph/poetics
