Agence TOPO ‘Geoweb’ call for submissions – deadline 15 August 2008

Residency program for Web art production under the artistic direction of
the independent curator Sylvie Parent.

Topic: The Geographical Web or Geoweb

Throughout 2009, Agence TOPO will produce a body of Web works comprising geographic references. Nowadays, the popularity of cartographic and earth visualization tools such as Google Maps and Google Earth has become an increasingly tangible component of how we experience the Web. Moreover, the use of geolocalization systems, such as GPS, is spreading and increasingly present in the digital world. Artists are appropriating these technologies to create travelogues, to reflect on urban space, and to conceive collective psychogeography and locational media projects. Artists interested in this theme, and by the production context offered by Agence TOPO are encouraged to submit their proposals. The projects could also include an “off screen” component, such as performance, installation, exhibition or mobile networks, that complements and expands the Web features and possibilities.

Submission deadline: 15 August
