Deadline Thursday 14 December 2017
Aimed at: Artists of any discipline, at any stage in their career, whose work can be produced as a digital image
BLOCK_CHAIN>THE POWER OF TWO borrows its terminology from the blockchain, the powerful digital algorithm, originally created for Bitcoin, which dissipates data across the Internet, logging each and every exchange in immutable transparency. In a similar way, this experimental process, where each pairing of artists will serve as a catalyst for the next, will be documented at every point, the process of transaction and exchange of ideas, dissipated online through social media platforms.
Chapel Arts Studios is a research-based arts organisation, which centres on the subject of constructive dissent, explored through a collaborative lens. BLOCK_CHAIN >THE POWER OF TWO is a further iteration of this exploration, bringing artists together to interact and respond to the subject of dissent be that political, personal, environmental, societal, material or whatever way artists wish to interpret it.
HOW TO APPLY Application can either be by individuals or in pairs. You must be familiar with Instagram and social media in general, and have the ability to produce a high res image of your work. Please send a PDF with;
- 3 images of your work,
- A max 250 word statement on how your work might relate to dissent
- and a one page CV to include your contact details.
Name your PDF file , Surname_inital, ie. Smith_J, and email your application to email@example.com with the subject title, ‘Application for Block Chain’.
