Call for Entries: Turbulence New England Initiative II

Turbulence.org is pleased to announce its "New England Initiative  
II," a juried, networked art competition. Three projects by New England
artists
will be commissioned and exhibited on Turbulence (http://turbulence.org) 

and in real space (venue to be announced). Each award will be $3,500. The
 
jury consists of Julian Bleecker, Michelle Thursz, and Helen Thorington.
This
project is made possible with funds from the LEF Foundation.

PROJECT CONCEPT: Net art projects are "art projects for which the Net is
both a sufficient and necessary condition of viewing/ expressing/
participating" (Steve Dietz). They live in the public world of the  
Internet.

Recently, however, wireless telecommunications technologies have enabled
computation to migrate out of the desktop PC into the physical world,
creating the possibility of "hybrid" networked art, works that  
intermingle and fuse previously discrete identities, disciplines, and/or
fields of activity such as the Internet and urban space. (See the
networked_performance blog http://turbulence.org/blog specifically  
the categories "Locative Media" and "Mobile Art and Culture.") 
 
Borders are disintegrating and new identities are emerging. We encourage 

applications by net artists and artists working on networked hybrid
projects.
