YEAR ZERO ONE is currently seeking entries for TRANSMEDIA 2002, the second bi-annual festival of digital works by Canadian and international artists broadcast on outdoor video billboards. The critically acclaimed TRANSMEDIA 2000, featured the work of 12 artists on a large LED video billboard at a busy intersection in downtown Toronto.
Fame is elusive, transitory, expensive and always in your face...in our accelerated and saturated media culture is Warhol's 15 minutes now far too long? YEAR ZERO ONE will allow artists 15 seconds to inject their electronic vision of fame in a public urban space to a large audience. Artists may choose to interpret this theme however they wish although works which address both the subjectand make use of the 'site specific' video billboard medium will be preferred by the jurors.
The YEAR ZERO ONE collective will select 12 works, ie: short format digital video, animation, etc., without the use of audio. Works must be exactly 15 seconds in length - we will insert artist credit and title in intro before each 15 second piece. Each selected artwork will be looped and broadcast up to 4 times per hour 24/7 for the duration of the 3 week show. The exhibition will be archived and available for viewing to a world wide audience on year01.com. Artist fees will be paid.
Please submit screening copy in quicktime video format 400 pixels wide X 300 pixels high to:
DEADLINE for entries: July 1, 2002
