CALL FOR ART: ˈäbjəkt | OBJECT | əbˈjekt

The physical and psychological resonance of any particular object manifests itself in a multitude of ways from person to person. Experience and aesthetic preferences form unintended correlations w/in the individual which correspond to the larger perceptions of how one engages w/ their world. In film, particularly, an object [or a prop] can often carry a pivotal intention in the development of an auteur's worlds and characters which reflects in the viewer under their own specific circumstance.

ˈäbjəkt | OBJECT | əbˈjekt [subject to change] invites fellow artists to reassess / reconstruct / reinterpret a film prop which has severely impacted their viewing experience. The intent of this proposal is for artists to explore the tangible and intangible values of the object they decide upon and through it shed light on their perception of the world: fictional or not.

Proposals for review should be forwarded to my email address [click HERE] by Wednesday, January 16th. Artists which are accepted will be notified via email by Friday, January 18th, at which point the final due date for work will be Thursday, February 28th, 2013.

All interested participants should provide the following information: name, website [or a PDF w/ samples of work], statement of intent [250 words or less], and a series of sketches of their piece [size & media a huge plus]

Feel free to contact me w/ any questions / comments / concerns!

HAPPY 2013
