<nettime-ann> Open Up: Call for projects on digital facades (Madrid, Spain)


Call for projects on digital facades:
Open Up

Deadline: December 10, 2009
Dates of the workshop: February 9 through 23, 2010
Venue: Medialab-Prado in Madrid (Spain).

Worskhop tutors: Jordi Claramonte, Chandler McWilliams, Casey Reas, and Víctor Viña. Directed and coordinated by Nerea Calvillo.

Open Up is a workshop for the development of projects for the digital façade in Medialab-Prado's building. This call is addressed to the presentation of proposals to be collaboratively developed during the workshop-seminar taking place in Madrid from February 9 through 23, 2010.

The goal is to explore the relation between the urban screen and public space, to experiment with the screen’s communicative, narrative and visual capacities and to investigate its potential to offer new forms of participation such as receiving and participating in the different phases of content production. Selected projects will be developed under the supervision of teachers, technical assistants and an extensive group of collaborators.

Projects presented in this call will have to explore aspects such as: development of strategies for public participation, activation of urban space through the screen, foster public visibility of agents that normally have none, visualization of public collectives; interaction with portable devices, etc.

All those interested in collaborating in one of the selected projects can sign in from January 5 through February 8, 2010.

Check the call guidelines
and submit your project before December 10, 2009. No entry fees.
