[rohrpost] Repost: switch media chiang mai_ art festival PATHIAHRNELECTRON [SUPERNATURAL]: call for submissions + entry form


First Call for Submissions switch media_ art festival pathiharn electron
[supernatural] - Chiang Mai, Thailand - 6th-30th April 2004

Please forward to interested parties.

switch media chiang mai is an independent, non-profit artists
organization run by an international team with different backgrounds and
skills in art, new media and project-management. switch media is guided
friendly by an international advisory board. In cooperation with
different partners switch media organizes a media art festival in Chiang
Mai, Thailand with the title PATHIHARN ELECTRON [supernatural] from
6th-30th April 2004. The title developed from discussions regarding the
approach to the use of new media (art) - as being different from a
western one. pathiharn electron [supernatural] will evaluate this topic
by asking questions: What is the difference between the visual-graphical
languages of east/west in expressing "supernatural" as in movies,
videos, animations, computer games? What is the difference between
eastern/western cultures of spirituality/supernatural, its
socio-cultural relevance and its expression in new media art? What is
the difference of the socio-cultural impact of digital media (art)
between east/west - is there a ghost in the machine?

The festival will consist of lectures, workshops, video-/digital
art-screenings and exhibitions. It will be mainly focused at the Chiang
Mai University Art Museum but it will also be spread throughout the city
- Chiang Mai "social space", internet cafes, night markets, night
foodstalls, bars, shopping malls, rice fields. An international
conference will close the festival.

We hereby invite interested artists and theorists, organizations and
institutions to participate in pathiharn electron [supernatural]. We
especially invite the neighbouring region.

switch media accepts any form of digital media art - which includes
digital video, sound & music, computer based/generated works,
online-experiments, software, games, asf. As the festival will happen
throughout Chiang Mai we especially look for submissions which can be
used in installations. Deadline for submissions: 15th January 2004. A
team of curators will select the works. Selection results will be sent
out by mail or email in February 2004. switch media will produce a
documentation.

All submissions should be send to:
switch media chiang mai, c/o Chiang Mai University Art Museum, 239
Nimanhemin Road, Chiang Mai 50200, Thailand.
