Organism is looking for artists, designers and makers to take part in an interdisciplinary digital collaboration exploring symbiosis.
The following text includes all the details you need to apply to our open call. If you need to access this information in a different format please make sure you let us know at least two weeks before the deadline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organisms thrive on connection. They are all collectively tied to their environment. Some species develop particularly close biological relationships, leading their interactions to become essential to their mutual survival. This porous co-existence, rooted in collaboration, is called symbiosis.
Organism aims to establish a model for interdisciplinary collaboration that encourages creative cohesion through upskilling opportunities, peer learning and cooperative play. We are looking for five transdisciplinary artists to join us in developing an investigative digital project exploring the biological phenomenon of symbiosis.
Five artists will be selected to join the Organism Collective. They will collaborate remotely and liaise with Organism’s core team to develop an immersive digital installation involving visual, sonic, and interactive elements. The resulting piece will be experienced through a browser. We hope this will be the first of many projects developed by the collective.
What we are looking for
We welcome proposals from transdisciplinary artists, designers and makers worldwide. We would like to hear from practitioners working in a wide range of areas including but not limited to: sound art, digital art, sculpture, video art, dance, graphic design, costume design, animation, architecture, performance, poetry and creative coding.
Participants will not need technical skills or previous experience working digitally. Our core team will help artists access technical support where needed.
We are looking for artists with previous collaborative experience, such as supporting others with their creative projects, leading their own collaborative projects and participating in projects showcasing other people’s work. We hope to assemble a group of artists eager to work with and learn from each other.
