THE ELEVENTH INTERNATIONAL ART AND ARTIFICIAL LIFE COMPETITION
VIDA 11.0 NOW ACCEPTING ENTRIES
 

  • The purpose of the competition is to award prizes to electronic works of art created with artificial life technologies
     
  • Projects will be accepted from 15 June to 6 October 2008
     
  • For this edition of VIDA 11.0, the prize money has doubled to 80,000 Euros
     
  • The competition rules and all the information on previous editions can be viewed on the Vida Internet website.

One of Telefónica Foundation's main objectives is to promote the relationship between art and the new technologies. As a part of this goal, Telefónica Foundation is announcing the eleventh edition of the international VIDA competition to recognize artistic excellence in the field of artificial life and related disciplines.

The competition is open to art projects that explore the interaction between "synthetic" life and "organic" life as a reflection of the field of artificial life. 572 artists from 32 countries have participated in the ten previous editions and prizes have been awarded to more than 100 projects which included robots, electronic avatars, chaotic algorithms, cellular automats, computer viruses and virtual ecologies.

VIDA 11.0 will award a total of 80,000 euros to winning projects in two categories: one open to already-finished projects and another as an incentive for production in Ibero-America, Spain and Portugal. The winning works of art will be exhibited, as usual, at the Telefónica Foundation stand at ARCO.

The works of art submitted will be reviewed by an international panel made up by Mónica Bello Bugallo (Spain); Daniel Canogar (Spain); José Carlos Mariátegui (Peru); Sally Jane Norman (France-New Zealand); Simón Penny (United States-Australia) and Nell Tenhaaf (Canada). Terms and conditions of the competition, which is open to participants from all over the world, are available in Spanish, English, German, Portuguese, Korean and Chinese.

Marco Papa - Dancing on the Verge


DATE:  n/a

Website:  www.dancingontheverge.com


Marco Papa invites the public and all who supported the making of Dancing on the Verge to continue their support in the project, this time with a physical effort; their joint effort will give shape to what might emerge as the project’ s main piece: an impressive sculpture made out of 11 blocks of black granite, representing Gene Anthony Ray, a.k.a Leroy Johnson, the rebel dancer from the film “Fame”.

Those involved in the Black Gene installation’s performance will be unable to see the outcome of their action, the result of their strain will be concealed from them; the only thing visible will be a reflection of themselves in their own strain. It is about the generous gesture that a group, a community, make for the benefit of the spectators. In this case their joint effort will create the sculpture of the dancer in his most famous dance figure.
