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

Call for Submissions: The Multiple eXposure Project Zine 1.0

Attention writers, researchers, photographers, visual artists, and image-makers!

The Multiple eXposure Project is a multimedia, multi/trans/inter-disciplinary artistic practice and research-based initiative that explores the many layers of image-making, participatory photography, visual ethnography, and performative encounter(s) between the image and the spectator.

We are happy to announce that we will be publishing the very first issue of our collaborative zine and we are now accepting submissions until December 31, 2014.

The theme of our upcoming zine is “Self-as-Subject”, an exploration of the “self” and its manifold permutations – its presence, identity, representation, liminality, and (dis)embodiment – in this day and age of digital madness, hyperreality and mobility.

The zine is multimedia so we are accepting text and image-based submissions related to the theme in any format imaginable such as: articles, essays, reviews, short stories, poetry, interviews, photographs (film or analogue), visual narratives, videos, digital art, illustrations, cartoons, mixed media, collages, experimental pieces, etc. Collaborative projects are very much welcome. Multiple entries are also accepted. Digital and printed copies of the zine will be released.

Some notes to remember:

–   Please include your name, short profile, country of origin, and blog/website (if applicable) in your email.

–   Photo submissions in jpeg format must include a title and description.

–   When necessary, please follow the proper citations (MLA style) in article submissions.

Please email your submissions to themultipleexposureproject@gmail.com. For more information on The Multiple eXposure Project, check out our website: http://www.themultipleexposureproject.co.nr.
