Open Call: Relaxation Machine
What is the relationship between technology and relaxation — between technology and sleep, even? How do our dreams relate to the divinations and future-looking inclinations of the technological landscape? What are the consequences of ‘always on’ digital culture? How does technology create new sources of pleasure and relaxation, while at the same time denying these in the name of productivity?
Print Screen Festival and NewHive are inviting artists to submit work based on the theme of “Relaxation Machine” using NewHive’s multimedia publishing platform. Artists are encouraged to design pages with original text, animations, audio, videos, or make use of NewHive’s code editor to build works from scratch. The top selections will be exhibited in the Print Screen Festival at the Holon Cinematheque and Mediatheque in Israel during the festival June 22-25th 2016.
A jury of judges, including Liat Berdugo, Net Art and Special Programs Curator of Print Screen; Lindsay Howard, Curatorial Director at NewHive; Lior Zalmanson, Artistic Director of Print Screen will select one artist to receive an award of $250. Tag your newhives #relaxationmachine by May 1, 2016 for consideration.
