CONFLUX 2006 - September 14 - 17. 2006
Conflux is the annual New York City festival where visual and sound
artists,
writers, urban adventurers, researchers and the public gather for four
days
to explore the physical and psychological landscape of the city.

Say hello to Brooklyn! In 2006, Conflux will be held in Brooklyn for the
first time. McCaig-Welles Gallery in Williamsburg will serve as our
headquarters, with events taking place in and around the gallery.

Conflux 2006 is produced by Glowlab and curated by Glowlab and iKatun.

CONFLUX SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Participants in Conflux share an interest in psychogeography [
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychogeography ]. Projects presented range
from interpretations of the classical approach developed by the
Situationists to emerging artistic, conceptual and technology-based
practices.

At Conflux, participants, along with attendees and the public, put these
investigations into action on the city streets. The city becomes a
playground, a laboratory and a space for the development
of new networks and communities.

WHAT TO SUBMIT
Here are examples of the types of projects and events we're looking for:

- exploratory drifts/d=E9rives
- walks with hacked maps or experimental navigation techniques
- alt.tours by foot, bike, subway, bus
- social/environmental research and fieldwork
- workshops
- temporary public-space installations/interventions
- performance projects
- street games
- mobile-tech/locative media projects
- social networking projects that focus on cities and urban life
- project presentations, panel discussions and lectures.
- film/video works for a film series event.
- audio projects and musical performances for night events

Projects may take place in the neighborhood surrounding the gallery, in
other public-space locations in NYC, in the gallery or in a different 

venue
you provide.

PLEASE NOTE:  We are not doing an exhibition this year. You may provide
handouts, maps, flyers, etc. for your project but not artwork for the 

walls.
There will be wi-fi in the gallery.

ABOUT FUNDING
Conflux cannot provide individual project funding, but we may be able to
assist in other ways, such as providing a letter of support, the help 

of our
volunteers and discounts at local restaurants and other businesses.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

PROJECT SELECTION
These are the criteria the curators use in selecting projects for
Conflux:

1. Relevance: How does the project relate to psychogeography? Does it
address issues central to classic psychogeography and/or propose new
methods? Does the project take a unique approach to exploring/
understanding/changing the city and/or local neighborhood?
2. Experience: How do people experience the project? Is the public
experience of the project well-thought-through? Does it encourage
dialogue
between the diverse communities of New York City?
3. Feasibility: Is the project scope reasonable? Does the project have
its
own funding? Can the participants travel to Conflux with their own
funds?
