[rohrpost] ART OR SCIENCE PROJECTS IN VARIABLE GRAVITY


Hallo rohrpost, eine wirklich aufregende projekt ausschreibung (oder wollte
noch keiner von euch jemals den zustand der schwerelosigkeit testen?)

Gruesse, jan

> LEONARDO announces itsco-sponsorship of the:
>> 
>> MIR Campaign: Opportunity for Art or Science Projects in VariableGravity
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 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 period
> s 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.
>> 
> &
> gt; 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 ‚?ózero gravity‚?Ā 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 artists‚?Ā projects and up to 3
>> scientific experiments for participation.
>> 
>> For information and proposal form, go to:
>> http://mir.v2.nl/
>> 
>> Please email your intent to make a proposal as soon as possible to :
> mir@v2.nl
>> 
>> The MIR initiative is supported by the European Union‚?Ās Culture 2000
> fund.
