Open call for collaborators: November 15, 2008
Open call for the submission of proposals to be collaboratively developed during two three-day workshops* (January and March, 2009). This call is part of the activities of the Light, Space and Perception work group, led by artists Daniel Canogar, Julian Oliver and Pablo Valbuena, and supported by Mediala-Prado in Madrid (Spain).
The goal is to work with local developers to create prototypes with the aid of these three instructors and the interested collaborators.
* Light and the city. Urbanism, media-façades, the fusion of physical and digital urban spaces.
* Augmented Reality, the use of projections on three-dimensional surfaces and physical objects, the use of light as a material.
* Set and stage design and the creation of atmospheres through the projection of light: perspective, optical illusions, etc.
* Investigation of the qualities of our visual perception and its limits.
* Development of new light technologies for artistic purposes.
More information and online submission form:
* Medialab-Prado does not cover lodging and travel expenses for selected participants.

electronic contributions to:
There will be three sets of 10 small envelopes. Each set of 10 is the same. So we will have the same thing three times. Each set of ten will be bound by a blue string, forming a single unit.
They will be MAILED: three packages going to three different places at the same time.
The people who receive the packages only have to take a picture of the Blue String Drawing in some particular location that is easily accessible to them. These will be Reference Points, which we will plot on a map. When they have taken the picture like they are supposed to do, then they email the picture to us and MAIL the package to the next person who is going to receive it. Once we have the picture we give them the address to where they are supposed to send the package next. Once the package arrives there the process is repeated until finally...
Each package will in the end arrive and be photographed at each of the Cleopatra's Needles (Paris, London and New York City) on Dec 12, 2012 at 3:35 pm.
We will document this journey at each stage.
We are looking for people all over the world who will receive the packages, photograph them, and forward them to the next person. The express interest and learn more please reply to:

Bizarre Cities tom VII: Spring 2009
Dear friends and mail artists,
I like to announce the new theme for next year's edition of Bizarre Cities: This time I like to explore the theme of "surveillance". All the global conspiracy theorists, CCTV collectors, state security lovers and street art activists among you are cordially invited to contribute.
The rules are the same as always: please submit 25 copies of a visual artwork in the format A4 (21x29,7cm or 8,27"x11,69" or something close to this). Please try to remain creative and avoid the "I want to be in" b/w photocopy, please. Bizarre Cities always contains a good number of "traditional" art techniques, like etchings, woodcuts or drawings. Texts are most welcome and could be submitted electronically.
For this theme I could also imagine receiving some short videos which would be burned on a CD and published together with the magazine.
I would suggest that your contribution should arrive not later than 31 December 2008.
As usual the copyleft and right remains with the authors and each contributor receives a copy of the assembling.
In case you are interested, please contact me. This makes it easier for resource planning and will avoid surprises at the censorship offices.
