*Call for Applications for Digital Rules & Regs **with VIDEOCLUB*
14 March - 13 May 2011
Participating artists will develop new work over a nine-week period
in early 2011. After artists have agreed to participate, rules will
be devised in response to their practices and announced at the
beginning of the development period (Monday 14th March). Both
artists will work to the same set of rules and must create new work
in response to these rules. Artists should not apply with a specific
or existing project in mind.
Digital Rules and Regs (DR&R) will take place online, using the web
as a creative platform and tool; artists will be required to have a
substantial digital-based practice to take part. The final outcome
of the project will be web-based final artworks or works in
progress, and will be accessible to the public to experience / see /
interact with through a website / online means.
DR&R is primarily a development opportunity for making new work,
rather than an exhibition or showcase; the primary goal is to
explore artistic practice. During the development period artists
will be supported by videoclub curator Jamie Wyld.
videoclub’s current curatorial strand is based upon notions of
Surveillance. videoclub is particularly interested in receiving
applications from artists with some experience of developing
creative work with surveillance technology.
DR&R with videoclub is the pilot online implementation of the Rules
and Regs development model. Public access to the artists’ creative
processes will be highlighted, with artists asked to keep public
blogs and post work-in-progress.
videoclub produces development and exhibition opportunities for
artists working with film, video and digital practices; providing
opportunities for the public to see, experience and engage in
discourse about artists’ work. videoclub works with a range of
organisations to show artists’ work, and has often worked in
partnership to deliver its programmes of work, including working
with White Night Brighton and Hove, Northwest Film Forum (Seattle,
USA) and A Wall is a Screen (Hamburg, Germany). Artists we have
shown include: Ben Rivers, Semiconductor, Laure Prouvost, Mat
Collishaw, Gary Barber and Daria Martin.
