CALL FOR MACHINIMA ENTRIES

GALLERY MASKINEN WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO SUBMIT YOUR
CONTRIBUTION TO PARTICIPATE IN A MACHINIMA SCREENING
AT THE 2 MARCH 2010

Machinima is the use of real-time three-dimensional (3-D) graphics
rendering engines to generate computer animation. The term also refers to
works that incorporate this animation technique which includes videos
recorded in computer games or virtual worlds.

Originally a practice that arose from the animated software introductions
of the 1980´s demoscene, machinima is today a powerful artistic tool that
promote the relationship between art and new technologies with the ability
to reinterpret and re-code content from computer games and virtual worlds.


The machinima screening will take place the 2 March 2010 in HUMlab at the
Umeå University in the northern part of Sweden. We are interested in any
forms of machinima based work and you can contribute with as many works as
you like. We prefer that you send the works, for example, via
www.sendthisfile.com or www.yousendit.com to galleri.maskinen {AT} gmail.com.
If this is not possible DVD´s can be sent to:

Rasmus Albertsen
Glädjens Gränd 2, 0102
90363 Umeå
Sweden

DEADLINE FOR WORK(S) 19 February 2010

NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE OF WORK(S) 24 February 2010

The event will take place at the 2 March 2010 between 5 pm and 8 pm

Maskinen is an artist-run, non-profit gallery. Our ambition is to run a
nontraditional gallery that doesn?t necessarily work inside ?The White
Cube? and give place to lesser-exposed trends in the different forms of
contemporary art. Established, as well as un-established artists are
represented in Maskinen. More info: http://gallerimaskinen.se

HUMlab at Umeå University is a vibrant meeting place for the humanities
and information technology. A large and diverse studio environment serves
as the most important manifestation of this basic idea which involves
bringing people together, looking at information technology as tool,
medium, study object, and activist venue, and doing things that have never
been done before.
HUMlab is localized at the very center of the campus, and attracts people
from the whole university and from the outside. Many international
visitors come to HUMlab, and there is often a number of simultaneous
activities going on in the space. More info: http://www.humlab.umu.se/

The development of HUMlab has been supported by the Kempe Foundations, the
Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary
Foundation and others.
