Declare / Decay

Open Call [Declare/Decay]

Decomposition is a part of the natural ecosystem. It’s an essential process that involves time, death, decay, and breaking down. What does decomposition mean in a digitalized environment or cyberspace where there’s no physicality, passing time, or any organic substances? The theme is open to interpretation and could relate to the wide range of possibilities. The call is open to multiple formats including films, moving images, 3d artworks, photography, music, and sound art. We would also be very interested in hearing from anyone who is researching or writing about the subject.
The selected works will be presented in an online VR group exhibition titled “Declare/Decay”. It explores the differences and crossovers between what we understand as decomposition and its properties and meanings in the post-digital era. The virtual exhibition also questions what we as human beings can still consider as organic, physical, or natural.

● The duration of sound art and music contributions should be no longer than 5 minutes.
● The films and moving images projects should be uploaded on Vimeo or YouTube.
● The images and photos should be uploaded on google drive, dropbox, etc.
● 3d objects should be uploaded on google drive, dropbox, etc, and should not contain more than 10k polygons.
