ICIDS 2020 Art Exhibition opens its call for interactive digital artworks
The ICIDS 2020 Art Exhibition opens its call for interactive digital artworks that explore this year’s curatorial theme Texts of Discomfort. The guideline for art works follows Barthes’s concept Text of Bliss, “the text that imposes a state of loss, the text that discomforts… unsettles the reader’s historical, cultural, psychological assumptions” (Barthes 1973, p12). Interactive digital art works that generate discomfort through their form and/or their content may actually inspire radical changes in the way we perceive the world.
Submitting artists are encouraged to mix technologies, narratives, points of view, to create interactive digital artworks that unsettle interactors’ assumptions by tackling the world’s global issues; and/or to create artworks that bring to a crisis interactors’ relation with language, that innovate in their way to intertwine narrative and technology.
Artworks can include, but are not limited to:
AR, MR and VR works
Mobile and location-based works
Screen-based computational works
Webdocs and interactive films
Submissions to the exhibition should be made using this form by June 12th. Any questions on the submission process should be sent to .
Full details on the exhibition theme, review process, and submission are available in the full Call for Submissions document.
