Announcing an open call for light based artworks and installations....
Making use of an underutilized outdoor space in our Long Island City
neighborhood, this coming June, Flux Factory invites artists to develop
installations and light-based work, temporarily transforming and illuminating
the selected area at night. Artists, builders, educators, urban theorists,
covert geologists, and circuit benders will be asked to work collectively to
realize this project, through a series of group meetings and brainstorms. The
driving force behind Nightlight is to create a space that is playful, engaging,
and exciting to discover, while actively serving those who use the area as a
passageway after dark. As this is an outdoor installation, we are especially
interested in work which makes use of solar power or other alternative forms of
energy, and will hold up against the elements.
To apply, email exhibiti...@fluxfactory.org with "Nightlight" in the subject
line and attach a single PDF containing your project proposal, support sketches
or images (max 5 images or 5 minutes of video), examples of similar work (max 5
images or 5 minutes of video), your resumé or biography, and website URL if you
have one. In your project proposal, please also tell us about your favorite
secret spot in NYC. Applications are due February 17th and applicants will be
notified by mid-March.
