pd~convention04 - Call for works
The pd~stammtisch graz is organizing the first pd~convention. It will
take place in Graz in the week from 27th of September until 3rd of
October 2004. We aim to program a wide spectrum of presentations
regarding pure-data, the OpenSource/FreeSoftware realtime computer music
system by Miller S. Puckette. The program will include technical talks,
workshops with various levels of expertise and a number of artistic
works like concerts, installations and interventions. The pd~convention
is a cooperation between the pd~stammtisch graz, Medienkunstlabor, ESC,
mur.at and the iem.
CALL FOR ART-INSTALLATIONS
We are looking for art installations that are realized with pure-data
and/or within the context of pure-data. Therefore, this call for
installations specially targets on the pdcommunity. Since most
communication of the pd-community and development of pure-data is done
off-site (via internet technologies), we would like submitted works to
be installable without the need for the artist(s) to be on-site. Thus,
works should be technically simple.
The installations will be located in and outside of the
Medienkunstlabor, which is situated in the Kunsthaus Graz. A tramway
station is directly in front of the Medienkunstlabor. Therefore, this
place is highly frequented by both residents and visitors to the
Kunsthaus that are potentially interested in art.
Indoors installations will be accessible by passengers during daytime,
outdoors installations are permanently accessible.

audience: The primary target group of the installations are the ordinary
passers-by that do not necessarily have any knowledge of art
