CALL FOR WORK: Dropout
Postmark DEADLINE September 15 2008

Seeking video, documentary and animation entries in relation to the idea of digital dropout for Volume 4 of INtransit, produced by the AstroDime Transit Authority. How does the loss or corruption of data alter information as it reaches us? What happens to the message when we become aware of the medium? When is a glitch not just a glitch? Digital decay, lost signal, system error, the cliff effect, rolloff, dropout, static, interference, noise, data loss, corruption, malfunction. Don’t put a magnet too close to your computer screen. Don’t store your DVDs in direct sun. Walk through a wall to get to the Minus World. Can you hear me now? Remember when all of your vacation film went through the x-ray machine at the airport? When technology fails, what is lost and what is gained?

Please mail your work to:

Ali Horeanopoulos
15 Channel Center Street
Studio 519
Boston, MA 02210

If you want it returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Preview copies should be on DVD, VHS, or mini-DV. For more info, contact AliNichole@gmail.com
