Curators Leo Kuelbs and John Ensor Parker are looking for artists to submit work to “Codex Dynamic”, a video projection exhibition that will be presented under the Manhattan Bridge for this year’s DUMBO Arts Festival, September 28th-30th.
The video projection will consist of two site-specific large-scale mapped projections, rotating with a selection of a single-channel video artworks presented in a gallery format.
The brief is as follows:
Conceptualization of time has evolved through the ages. Cultural, historical and technological differences are bridged by the fact that our concept of time has always been rooted in the natural world. From early observation of the Moon’s cycles and seasonal changes, to today, as our knowledge of the natural world increases, so does our understanding of time. The Laws of Relativity provide us the opportunity to speed up, slow down, go backwards or even stop time; and with Quantum Mechanics, time is said to be unrelated to space and may simply be a direction at any moment, affording an object the possibility of simultaneously existing at different places.
Things to consider:
- Your video runtime should be very close to 3 minutes.
- Consider the site and event. The Manhattan Bridge is a DOT site and children and families will be present.
- Single-channel videos shall have no audio.
- Selected artists will be provided technical guidelines and further instructions. Artists interested in submitting their 16:9 single-channel videos for consideration should upload your password-protected video to Youtube by August 25th.
