Call for Proposals:

HEDONISTIKA: An event for food scholars, artists, and roboticists / Call for proposals

POSTED BY: johannes grenzfurthner | Tue Nov 27th, 2012 12:26 p.m.

Hedonistika will be a three-day, multi-modal event held in Montréal, CA that brings together food scholars, artists, and roboticists to examine the innumberable (and often hidden) ways in which technology and food are related. By engaging with the hegemony-challenging ideology of hacking, participants will seek to interrogate and expose the mutually constructive bonds of food and tech, while proposing alternative, playful, and stimulating reconfigurations. Part festival, part workshop, and part symposium, Hedonistika will merge research-creation with critical analysis, and community engagement with celebration. (Plus, it will taste and look really cool.)

Hedonistika is looking for projects and individuals that explore the critical issues within these realms. The curators are accepting proposals for robotics, installation and performance work, completed or not for exhibition in the festival portion of the event. Artists should submit a pdf document comprised of...

· A short CV (2 pgs)
· Short description of the project (150 words max)
· Long description of the project (500 words max) including images if possible
· Short bio
· Description of support material
· Documentation of past work (no more than 10 items)
· URL to artist website

Hedonistika is scheduled for 2013 in Montreal and will be an Elektra sponsored event.
