PEACE - Public Electronic Art Commission Exposition

Does peace mean getting a nights sleep without being woken by the baby ?

Does peace mean a good nights sleep without hearing your mother being
beaten up by
your father ?

Does peace mean a good  sleep without the sound of constant shells exploding ?

The commission is for a new multi media installation / video data
projection / web project / sculptural work, etc. by an individual artist or
collaborative group.

The budget for the project makes available a production budget of £3000.
The applicant should provide a proposed budget, including a full projected
expenditure incorporating allocation to r+d, production costs,
documentation, etc. The commissioned artist will also receive a fee of
£6000. There will be additional budget held by HTBA for installation costs,
marketing, accommodation and travel, education work and overheads.

This artists commission is in partnership with Hull University Institute
for Learning, Information Technology in the Community and Hull 700 is to be
launched and selected in 1999, developed and produced for completion by
June  2000.  We intend the work to leave a legacy for years to come.

HTBA is open to proposals such as:
virtual networks, social research proposals, light and audio projections
built into the fabric of the street furniture or surrounding architecture,
video images projected into public walking spaces or onto buildings,
publicly accessible computer terminals where the audience can respond and
create their own art, physical installations using images created in
locations across the city.

The finished work will be located or viewable in some way around Time Base
at 42 the High St. in the City's historic Heartlands area along the River
Hull Corridor, Hull's key site for regeneration.

Issues of ownership, authorship and censorship will be areas of debate
surrounding the work as we are hoping for something which crosses
boundaries between content and conduit.
