Fabrica will commission one artist (or a pre-existing artist group), with a strong track record, to create a new work, that explores the possibility for (or actuality of) sustaining close personal relationships across geographical distance.
Located primarily online and through telecommunication, broadcast and/or social and networked media, this commission will investigate human to human contact, and intimacy, as increasingly mediated and entangled with nonhuman others.
The work and its process of production will be shared online, and presented by the artist as an event or ‘work-in-progress’ exhibition, at Fabrica during Brighton Digital Festival 2016.
Fabrica is inviting artists to apply whose practice incorporates digital and networked technologies, and who are living and working in the EU and/or Iceland, Norway, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Republic of Serbia, Turkey, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine.
Deadline: 12 noon (UK time) Tuesday 10 May 2016
