Call for entries: Pixelache Helsinki 2011 – deadline 8 November 2010

Call for entries: Pixelache Helsinki 2011/programme sections: map me if you will and Computational Photography.

Pixelache Festival 2011 looks for works that collect, transform, and make use of the data of everyday life in unseen artistic ways. ‘map me if you will’ is a programme devised by guest curator Susanne Jaschko. One or two new artworks will be created by invited artists. This open call is for works which will either be presented individually or as a part of a the ‘map me if you will’ seminar. You can also propose workshops, performances and other related programmes. Open Call: Computational Photography – the return of the unexpected In computational photography, camera and picture-taking are perceived as concepts that can be modified in do-it-yourself spirit and are therefore open to discussion, redefinition, and hacking. This artistic approach to the field differs from how the term is understood in the photographic industry where the focus is on features that serve typical photographic purposes. This open call is for artworks of computational photography in the broad meaning of the term. They can be still or moving images, installations, online projects; or devices or social processes used to create new visual languages. The programme section is organised by guest curator Markku Nousiainen and in collaboration with Aalto University Media Factory.
