AIM, the University of Southern California School of Fine Arts’ international festival of time-based media, in partnership with the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, is pleased to announce AIM V: SYZYGY (The Human Remix). AIM V: SYZYGY calls for entries that explore the question of the human/machine ‘remix’. Derived from a Greek root meaning “yoked or paired”, syzygy implies a state of interdependent duality that speaks to the increasingly permeated relationship between human and machine.
In this renegotiation of what it is and means to be human, we are exploring the ramifications of the ‘remix’ – its impact on human relationships (from global to interpersonal), on perception and the expression of subjectivity (human and/or machine), and on the experience of being a body (physical or virtual, flesh or machine).
The AIM V: SYZYGY (The Human Remix) exhibition will be held March 7 – June 6, 2004 at the Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena. AIM V will also include screenings on the video billboards on West Hollywood’s Sunset strip and satellite lectures and events in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Cusco, Peru.
Works must be 'time-based' and address the festival theme (however obliquely). Works may be submitted by anyone working in any discipline and/or medium.
Submission to AIM is free. Submit proposals and/or copies of projects (no originals please) in the form of a DVD, VCD, VHS (NTSC), Macintosh CD-ROM, or URL, as appropriate. Other formats can be accommodated by prior arrangement with AIM.
