|[Nettime-nl] Fusedspace: call for inspiring applications|
FUSEDSPACE: Call for inspiring applications for new technology in the public domain Information and communication technology have fundamentally changed our relationship with public space. Technology has not only changed the way we use public space, it also has brought about its virtual expansion. Through technological innovations like the Internet, text messaging, mobile (tele)communication, intranet and gps we can freely share information and develop a community life on the web. Do these developments still offer unknown possibilities in favor of the public domain? Do you have an idea or proposal through which technology will make possible other interactions with the public domain, which will shed new light on it or in any other way will bring about innovation? Then enter the FUSEDSPACE competition. FUSEDSPACE is an international competition for ideas on inspiring applications for new technology in the public domain. We call for submissions · that succeed either in increasing or simplifying the accessibility of virtual public spaces. · that (by means of hardware or software) succeed either in making use of or increasing the public potential of the new media. · that (by means of hardware or software) develop facilities which generate or enhance ‘social coherence’. · that stimulate or define the debate on the newly formed public domain. · that search for modifications to utilities that predominantly are used commercially, and that can broaden cultural and social perspectives in the public domain. The total prize amounts to 17,500 euros. A number of nominees will be invited to take part in an implementation phase in connection with DEAF (Dutch Electronic Art Festival) 2004. Submission fee is 50 euros. The competition is open tot artists, architects, designers, students and anyone who is interested in the subject. Proposals can be submitted from 27 January until 31 May 2004. The winners will be announced on 16 July 2004. FUSEDSPACE is an initiative of Stroom (The Hague’s center for visual arts), InformatieWerkPlaats, SKOR Foundation for Art and Public Space and Premsela (Dutch design foundation) in collaboration with V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media, DEAF (Dutch Electronic Arts Festival) and Doors of Perception. FUSEDSPACE is sponsored by the Mondriaan Foundation, Prince Bernhard Cultural Foundation and the city of The Hague.
