Pixilerations is an annual new media showcase in Providence, Rhode Island that investigates the state of new media arts through installations, concert performances and film/video screenings. It is part of the larger FirstWorks Festival (www.first-works.org), a multidimensional performing arts festival held in Providence each fall. Pixilerations is produced by FirstWorks in collaboration with the Rhode Island School of Design, Brown University and the City of Providence's Department of Art, Culture + Tourism.
THE SUBMISSION PERIOD FOR WORK IS MARCH 1st - MARCH 31st, 2010
PIXILERATIONS [v.7] invites artists, musicians and film/video makers to submit work for the 2010 showcase of New Media art. This year's theme is "Pairings" -- two are better than one. While Pixilerations does not require submissions to align with a theme, we are looking for work that:
a) pairs media (eg: sculpture and video, digital images with objects);
b) is the result of pairings of artists (eg: video artists and painter, digital artist and dancer), or uses duos of contrasting elements;
c) links different forms of working (eg: drawing and moving images, visual collage and music);
d) joins content drawn from different realms (eg: science and art, anthropology and photography);
e) employs social pairings (eg: war and peace, fear and security).
