<nettime> Art In Motion festival



Dear Nettime:
My name is Janet Owen and I am Festival Director for Art In Motion II, the 
second annual international festival of time-based media presented by the 
University of Southern California School of Fine Arts.

We are currently sending out our worldwide call for entries and I  hope that 
you will consider sharing the information via nettime.

I have pasted details about the event and the entrycall below and would be 
happy to pass on any more that you require.

Thank you for your consideration.
Best regards
Janet Owen

ART IN MOTION II
CALL FOR ENTRIES
DEADLINE: JANUARY 1, 2001
SUBMISSION IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL

THE FESTIVAL: The Second Annual International Festival of Time-Based Media 
Presented by the University of Southern California School of Fine Arts, in 
collaboration with the Santa Monica Museum of Art. The festival will take 
place Thursday–Saturday, February 15, 16, 17, 2001on both the USC Campus, 
Los Angeles and at the SMMoA, Santa Monica.

Unlike most film festivals, galleries and media venues which are organized 
around a specific media or genre, Art In Motion is organized around a 
central theme, and the only criteria for submission is that works be 
'time-based'.

FESTIVAL THEME: "The Vanishing Author?"
Throughout the 20th century the concept of "The Author" as an individual 
"artist-genius" with a unique vision was continually challenged. Now, in the 
21st century, new technologies have multiplied access to authorship and 
re-invigorated "The Author" concept.  At the same time they have ushered in 
an age of infinite reproducibility where there is no "final cut" and no 
definitive, authoritative voice. In effect the role of the "author" is being 
perpetually destroyed and recreated. The consequent fluidity is forcing a 
rupture and reassessment of our perceptions of "authority", "self", 
"meaning", "value" and "originality" that is radically impacting cultural, 
social, political, economic, and legal interactions.

Entries may address the festival theme directly or indirectly. If, for 
example, you are an "Author", or your work is made collaboratively, employs 
sampling and appropriation and/or is available for others to sample, then it 
is addressing the theme. Send it to us!

SUBMISSION CRITERIA: Works in time-based media completed after October 
1,1998. Time-based projects include those created in film, video, digital 
video, animation, sound pieces, digital media, CD-ROMs, websites, 
installations and performances – all hybrids are welcome.

SUBMISSION IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL
