“The Network will be visualised”

The Synopsis :

Increasingly we live in a world which is marked by boundaries and difference. Our actions are categorised and labeled for reference, sign posting and evaluation. The Network breathes and crackles between these spaces, it makes the virtual tangible.

The Network overcomes these boundaries by supporting difference, tolerance and equity between individuals, machines and their actions. The Network is a production tool for artisans, a calibrating tool for media communicators and an ecological template for our continued survival and reinvention. It is as much a social mechanism as it is a cultural barometer for these plugged in data intensive times.

The Call Out :

SCREENGRAB is now entering its second year with an international call out for the AUS$2000 New Media Arts Prize and the companion exhibition in October for short listed applicants. We invite digital practitioners working in screen based media to submit works on the theme of THE NETWORK.
