"Call for Artists: Opportunity for Art or Science Projects in Variable Gravity"
2002-10-02 until 2002-10-21
Arts Catalyst, the Science-Art Agency
London, , UK United Kingdom

The MIR partnership invites proposals from European and Europe-based artists and scientists to undertake projects/research in variable gravity conditions on a parabolic flights or using other facilities, such as the centrifuge and the hydrolaboratory/neutral buoyancy facility used for EVA training, at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre (GCTC), Star City, Russia. Deadline for proposals is October 21, 2002.

A parabolic flight provides up to 20 cycles of 30-second periods of weightlessness (zero gravity/microgravity) in freefall, interspersed with periods of double gravity (2g acceleration) and normal gravity.

This is the pilot project of the MIR (microgravity interdisciplinary research) initiative, which seeks to open up space and space industry related facilities by matching artistic processes and scientific research to give a new impulse to space art and space research.

The MIR partnership comprises 5 European art organisations focusing on art, science and technology:

The Arts Catalyst, science-art agency, London, UK

Leonardo/Olats, Leonardo journal of art, science & technology and Leonardo observatory for the arts and the techno-sciences, Paris, France

Multimedia Complex of Actual Arts, Moscow, Russia

Projekt Atol, arts-technology organisation, Ljubljana, Slovenia

V2_Organisation, institute for the unstable media, Rotterdam, Netherlands

The selection committee will be made up of representatives from these organisations.

The opportunity includes a cultural exchange and working trip to Moscow and Star City in early 2003, including the potential to participate in one or two parabolic ‘zero gravity’ flights with the GCTC.

The opportunity is open to artists and scientists in any discipline, where the lead proposer is based in any European country, whether or not EU members. We will select up to 6 artists’ projects and up to 3 scientific experiments for participation.

For information and proposal form, go to: http://mir.v2.nl/

Please email your intent to make a proposal as soon as possible to : mir@v2.nl

The MIR initiative is supported by the European Union’s Culture 2000 fund.
