Call for Entries: Infectious

Filed under: Call For Entries — Torrey Nommesen @ 12:25 am

INFECTIOUS OPEN CALL

Calling all cultural epidemiologists, microbial artists, viral marketers, digital immunologists, social modelers, pyramid schemers, fashion vectors, mimetic engineers, and carriers of dangerous ideas…

The Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin requests proposals for works to be included in a new exhibition entitled INFECTIOUS. Focused on contagion and its mechanisms in media of all kinds, the exhibition will explore both how things spread and why it matters from the perspectives of agents, hosts, and systems. INFECTIOUS will sample not only the workings of human diseases and immune responses, but the propagation of ideas and the recent developments in network theory that link all of this together.

Opening 18th April 2009, INFECTIOUS will run for three months along with a full complement of related performances, talks, debates and other events. Science Gallery plans to include within the exhibition works created in response to this call as well as components developed by project staff and advisors. Entries must be submitted no later than Monday, 1 December 2008, 5pm GMT.

Please visit this website for further details and Expression of Interest form.

Start infecting others! Please forward this email to friends and colleagues who might help this idea to spread.
