    *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.
