A word from Candace Wiersema, member of the 8x8x∞ committee:
« Event: 8x8x∞ in conjunction with the Atmosphere Conference from Feb. 3rd to 5th, 2011
Submission Deadline: January 28th, 2011
I am writing to you on behalf of the 8x8x∞ committee. Sponsored by the Manitoba Association of Architects Public Affairs Committee, 8x8x∞ is an international exhibition of projected digital images held in Winnipeg in conjunction with the Atmosphere Conference 2011: Mediated Cities hosted by the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Architecture from February 3rd to 5th, 2011. We are hoping to get digital submission from as many cities around the world as possible. The submitted images will act as ‘wallpaper’ to the social events of the conference and then continue to digitally exist (infinitely?) on our website.
Brief: 8x8x∞ is an international exhibition of projected digital images (photos, drawings, collages, manipulations text,….) held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in conjunction with the Atmosphere Conference, put on by the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Architecture and Sponsored by the Manitoba Association of Architects. The format is for each entrant to submit 8 images that exemplify the conference’s theme of « Mediated Cities ». Images will run consecutively for 8 seconds each. An infinite number of submissions will be accepted. Entrants name and city will be identified on each image. The exhibition will be presented in a variety of public venues on walls, building facades, snowbanks, etc.
Goal: Too represent at least 100 cities from as diverse sources as possible around the globe.
Feel free to pass the invite on and have fun with it.
