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.
