FUTURESONIC 2009 ART STRAND

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A commission valued at GBP 5000 is available to create a new artwork,  
plus Futuresonic can support a limited number of other projects.

Each year Futuresonic's Art strand commissions new artworks and  
presents exhibitions on art, technology and social themes, with a  
focus on artworks that are participatory, sited in public space, and  
in an urban context. Futuresonic is a space to critically explore the  
latest upgrade affecting today's digital culture. The festival  
features art exhibitions, performances and interventions, including  
many world firsts - transforming the city into a space of  
experimentation, making it come alive.

2009 is the culmination of the Environment 2.0 project. Within the  
festival and throughout the year, Futuresonic will be exploring the  
Environment 2.0 theme, the interface between our digital footprint  
and our environmental footprint. Through Cracks In The Pavement is an  
exhibition featuring artworks that seek to inspire social change, and  
local innovations that enhance sustainability. Post-Car Futures is an  
exhibition exploring new mobilities from the wheel to wirelessness,  
and new ways of travelling and new ways to stay still.

Futuresonic invites submissions of artworks, social innovations or  
technological interventions for inclusion in the Futuresonic 2009  
festival and on the Environment 2.0 theme.

Submissions deadline -- 5pm, 13 October 2008. *We invite you to  
submit expressions of interest to Gala Pujol at  
fs2009 {AT} futuresonic.com in advance of the deadline.

Electronic Arts, Singapore, 30th July 2008. Presented by Drew  
Hemment, ImaginationLancaster and Futuresonic.

A forum for discussion and quick fire presentations invites  
participants at ISEA2008 to explore new thinking on environmental  
sustainability and at innovative approaches to grass roots and  
creative intervention on the environment. The focus is on the  
interface between our digital footprint and our environmental  
footprint, non-Western perspectives, and on creative intervention to  
enable social change.
