Call for Contributions

The City as Interface @ Impakt Online
This is a call for art projects that fit the topic of ‘the City as Interface’. Impakt Online invites artists, filmmakers, architects, urban planners, researchers, programmers and the like to submit their proposals for online projects that consider the city as interface, buildings as responsive surfaces, mobile phones as tools for playing and mapping, and technological traces as data for art and research. With the Impakt festival focusing on The Matrix City this year, Impakt Online 2010 offers a space to explore the City as Interface.
About the topic
In December 2009, the Institute of Network Cultures (INC) organized an event on Urban Screens in which artists, architects and theorists presented their research and design projects that regarded the city as a space of informatics, buildings as interactive surfaces, and mobile phones as pocketsize urban screens. With this call, Impakt Online wishes to build on this research and design practice, and collaborate with the INC, the International Urban Screens Association, and other parties such as Vurb.eu and De Verdieping on commissioning new works within this field of interest. Engaging with changing conceptions, structures and practices of urban landscapes, the Impakt Online topic of “The City as Interface” works meaningfully with the Impakt festival’s overall theme of ‘Matrix City’. ‘Matrix City’ maps out the recent developments in this new urban landscape along two regularly intertwining lines. In ‘Universe in Universe’ the city is viewed as a gathering place of subcultures and communities, and ‘Media In Situ’ reflects on the city as an immersive audiovisual environment, as a modal structure in which virtual and real systems merge.

About this call
Impakt online will select and support a max. total of three online projects to be presented at Impakt.nl/online. In addition, applicants may also submit a proposal for a residency at Impakt headquarters in Utrecht, which includes a workspace and housing facilities for a period of two months.
