OPEN CALL: Terminal01

Sep 12, 2006 6:06 pm
Year Zero One is seeking submissions for Terminal01 (T01), an interactive networked art exhibition to be lauched at Toronto Pearson International Airport in the spring of 2007. T01 will consist of a kiosk housing a touch-sensitive screen, an audio-video output, an embedded web camera, sensors and projection screen. Artists will be invited to create site-responsive computer generated work based on their experience and interpretation of air travel environs, airports, mobility, flight data and networked communities. Emphasis will be given to works with a generative component or works dealing directly with themes relevant to travel (space-time).

Toronto’s Pearson International is ranked 22nd among the world's busiest airports by international traffic and receives over 30 million passengers per year. With a current mandate to present a diverse range of exhibitions the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) will host the T01 exhibition for a six month period in 2007. Designed by Canadian architect Moshe Safdie, Toronto Pearson's new Terminal One empahsizes natural light and transparency: " In an attempt to demystify the chaos of travel, many details in the building were designed to reveal the workings of an airport terminal." T01 will be an extention of this notion of transparency where artwork reveals complex processes through visual and aural representations.

Please Submit Proposals through the online submission form (Requires Flash 8 plugin). Deadline for submissions is December 1st, 2006. Artist fees paid. T01 is curated by Michael Alstad and David Jhave Johnston.
