• To develop and publish an
online, trans-disciplinary book that will address recent artistic developments
made possible by computers, networks, and mobile connectivity
b) the shaping of creative practice that is open, contingent and participatory
c) the building of virtual communities which, in the words of Howard Rheingold, "becomes inevitable wherever computer mediated communications technology becomes available to people anywhere." (The Virtual Community, 1993)
Networked proposes that a history or critique of interactive and/or participatory art must itself be interactive and/or participatory; that the technologies used to create a work suggest new forms a “text” might take.
We aim to spark a conversation between researchers and practitioners, curators, artists, and academics in the fields of art (music, sound, dance, e-lit, visual art …), architecture, convergence, mapping, urbanism, games, sociology, visualization, cultural studies, and environmental studies.
In keeping with the transdisciplinary nature of the book, authors may consider, but are by no means limited to, themes such as:
• cyberspace and identity
All papers will be reviewed by our international committee.
Each of the commissioned chapters will contain text, images,
videos, and/or audio.
must be based on original, unpublished research.
(b) A 1000 word proposal that should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 250 words and a list of keywords to indicate the subject area of the chapter. [Each of the commissioned chapters will contain text, images, videos, and/or audio.]
(c) Three networked writing samples. Samples may include a blog entry, a Wikipedia article the applicant worked on extensively, or samples from any other participatory project (send URLs).
You may write the proposal in any language but you must submit it in English as well. If selected, the chapter will be published in both languages.
Final chapters must be no less than 5,000 words.
