THE QUARTIER DES SPECTACLES PARTNERSHIP AND ILLUMINART DANS LE CADRE DE MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE INVITE CREATORS TO USE DATA VISUALIZATION TO CREATE AN ARTISTIC INSTALLATION.
The massive growth in volumes of data in recent years, with a corresponding increase in public availability, suggests new perspectives and methods for understanding the world. This call seeks the unique perspectives of artists and other creative talents. Data from BIXI and STM will be used as raw creative material, filtered through an interpretive process aimed at making the data visible to the public.
This project is linked to an upcoming colloquium, Artificial intelligence and data serving creative work for public spaces. The colloquium will explore the possibilities opened by the creative use of data and collaboration among science, academia and art. The event will take place on February 22, 2018, at Montreal.
During the colloquium, five finalists will present their proposals to a jury and the general public. One proposal will be selected for production and exhibition at Illuminart 2019, during Montréal en Lumière. A production grant of $75,000 CAD will be awarded to the winner.
PROPOSALS MUST BE SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 12, 2018 AT 10 A.M.
