CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: TRANSFORMERS: Code and Data-Driven Animation

TRANSFORMERS: Code and Data-Driven Animation

Computer programming is an often invisible force that effects many aspects of our contemporary lives. From how we gather our news, maintain our libraries, or navigate our built environment, code shapes the interfaces and information they connect to. Artists who work with these languages as material can critically excavate code and its effects.

We seek submissions of animation and video that are produced through the use and manipulation of code and/or data. This can include, but is not limited to Processing, data sets, motion capture, procedural animation, and other forms of digital processing. Submitted work may include screen recordings or documentation of interactive, browser based, or live visual performances. The selected works will be screened during CAA and will have an online presence through the New Media Caucus Vimeo Channel and website. This program is part of the New Media Caucus’ participation in the 2016 College Art Association (CAA) Conference.

Preference is given to videos that are five minutes and under.(If longer videos are selected we will request that the artist provides a shorter excerpt).

The program will be selected by a panel of video artists including:

Mat Rappaport - Artist, Columbia College Chicago and v1b3.com
Darren Douglas Floyd - Artist/Filmmaker
A. Bill Miller - Artist, The University of Wisconsin - Whitewater
