Since opening in 2008, Science Gallery has had over one million visitors. Today, Science Gallery is seeking proposals for its upcoming exhibition LIFELOGGING LAB, which will open in February 2015.
Curators for this exhibition are seeking up to 14 works. Proposals will be funded up to a maximum budget of €2600. Two outstanding original works may be commissioned with a higher budget of up to €7500.
From critical to creative, LIFELOGGING LAB will ask artists, designers and philosophers ‘where do we go from here’ and question whether we can record and analyse happiness, beauty and aesthetics the same way we record footsteps and heartbeats. This exhibition will explore novel methods for capturing data, for visualizing, and for analysing the insights that new data affords us about ourselves and society.
Submissions Deadline: Thursday, October 23, 2014 – 12:00
Decide if you’re going to do a video based or text-based proposal submission.
For a video based proposal submit an informal two-minute (max) video in which you:
- explain how the visitor will experience your piece in the gallery
- tell us a bit about yourself
- outline a brief budget breakdown
Record your video with your phone, webcam and upload it to your own YouTube or Vimeo account or directly from the gallery submission page, or directly to the gallery submission page in MP4 format.
For text based submissions, submit up to a 300 word proposal in which summarize the same information: what the visitor will see/hear/experience, a bit about yourself, and a budget breakdown.
For each type of submission, you can also include images to illustrate your project.
You’ll need to either create an account on opencall.sciencegallery.com or you can log in using your existing Facebook or Google accounts.
