Theme : Intervention

Increasingly we live in a world which is marked by boundaries and difference. Our actions are categorised and labelled for reference, sign posting and evaluation.

Intervention is the new catchcry of these troubled times and no one is immune whether it be remote indigenous communities, Wall St banks, tropical forests, visual communication, economies of the state, small gatherings in shopping malls, subliminal advertising, ISPs, online discussion forums or pop cultural moments like Facebook and the Sopranos.

Screengrab’s inaugural exhibition and new media arts prize invites practitioners working in screen based media to submit works on the theme of Intervention.

All forms of screen based media are encouraged including multi-channel video, digital illustration, audio sculpture, photography, generative media, 2D & 3D anime.
