[Nettime-ro] MIR Campaign: Opportunity for Art or Science Projects in Variable Gravity



MIR Campaign
OPPORTUNITY FOR ART OR SCIENCE PROJECTS IN VARIABLE GRAVITY (INCLUDING ZERO
GRAVITY)
and OTHER ARTISTIC PROJECTS at the GAGARIN COSMONAUT TRAINING CENTRE

Call for Proposals ­ deadline 21 October 2002

The MIR partnership invites proposals from European and Europe-based artists
and scientists to undertake projects/research in variable gravity conditions
on a parabolic flights or using other facilities, such as the centrifuge and
the hydrolaboratory/neutral buoyancy facility used for EVA training, at the
Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre (GCTC), Star City, Russia.

A parabolic flight provides up to 20 cycles of 30-second periods of
weightlessness (zero gravity/microgravity) in freefall, interspersed with
periods of double gravity (2g acceleration) and normal gravity.

This is the pilot project of the MIR (microgravity interdisciplinary
research) initiative, which seeks to open up space and space industry
related facilities by matching artistic processes and scientific research to
give a new impulse to space art and space research.

The MIR partnership comprises 5 European art organisations focusing on art,
science and technology:

The Arts Catalyst, science-art agency, London, UK
Leonardo/Olats, Leonardo journal of art, science & technology and Leonardo
observatory for the arts and the techno-sciences, Paris, France

Multimedia Complex of Actual Arts, Moscow, Russia

Projekt Atol, arts-technology organisation, Ljubljana, Slovenia

V2_Organisation, institute for the unstable media, Rotterdam, Netherlands

The selection committee will be made up of representatives from these
organisations.

The opportunity includes a cultural exchange and working trip to Moscow and
Star City in early 2003, including the potential to participate in one or
two parabolic Ozero gravityı flights with the GCTC.

The opportunity is open to artists and scientists in any discipline, where
the lead proposer is based in any European country, whether or not EU
members. We will select up to 6 artistsı projects and up to 3 scientific
experiments for participation.

Please email your intent to make a proposal as soon as possible to :
mir {AT} v2.nl

The MIR initiative is supported by the European Unionıs Culture 2000 fund.
