Subject: [CAS] NEW MEDIA ART XYZ - Where did new media art in the 1990s 'go'?Date: Wed, 26 Sep 2018 10:32:13 -0700

happened to new media art in the 1990s? At one point, it seemed to
circulate in its own scene as a cohesive "thing" - but a few decades
later, it's unclear where new media art went and how it evolved. Did it
die, institutionalize into its own festivals or events, move into the
larger art world, get swallowed up by social media platforms like
YouTube or Instagram, or move into experimental HCI, the maker movement,
critical design, or something else? What is the ‘XYZ’ shape or
timeline of how new media art has evolved over the past 20 years?  "NEW
MEDIA ART XYZ" is a collaborative publishing project that explores ideas
about where new media art in the 1990s 'went'. The project seeks
submissions from old and young new media artists, curators, festival
organizers, writers, electronic artists, media theorists, hackers,
haters or others interested in the topic of how new media has shifted,
moved and evolved in the art community over the past two decades. In
particular, the project is looking for submissions of single page A4 or
8.5" x 11" hand-drawn black-and-white diagrams that illustrate your
concepts of what happened to new media art since the 1990s. The diagrams
can be in portrait or landscape mode, can use any drawing medium -
although pen or marker on white paper will likely reproduce best.
Submissions must be hand-drawn (no computer aided design allowed), it
must not be purely a text-based piece of writing (a diagram is
required), and it must be received by December 31st 2018. Quick diagrams
are welcomed: consider taking 5 minutes and drawing something on the
nearest clean sheet of paper for your submission.  The drawings will be
curated by Garnet Hertz, Canada Research Chair in Design & Media Arts.
Hertz will select approximately 50 to 100 drawings, write an
introduction, design the book, produce it as a physical publication, and
release it online for free six months later. The hardcopy version of
"NEW MEDIA ART XYZ" will be printed in a limited and numbered edition of
300 copies, all of which will be given away for free by Hertz. Free
copies will be given to all accepted contributors, and after handmade
copies and free online sources are released, it may be reformatted into
a commercially available book.  Snail-mailed contributions can be sent
to: Garnet Hertz, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, 520 East 1st
Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V5T 0H2, Canada. Scanned contributions should be
at 300dpi or greater and emailed to garnethertz at gmail.com. Submissions
can also be directly uploaded at http://newmediaart.xyz.  Hertz's past
book projects have included 'Critical Making'
(http://conceptlab.com/criticalmaking/) and 'Disobedient Electronics:
Protest' (http://disobedientelectronics.com). As experimental publishing
projects, these books explore alternate modes of disseminating
knowledge. Approaches include making academic-oriented handmade
bookworks, and giving artists more platforms to speak about theory
related to their work. NEW MEDIA ART XYZ has a diagram-only policy for
submissions in order to give more of a voice to artists that do not
usually express their ideas in writing — and it encourages writers to
draw. More information on Hertz can be found at http://conceptlab.com/
and more information on this project (and this call) can be found at
http://newmediaart.xyz/.  Consider contributing something by December
31st 2018, and in exchange we will work hard to do something interesting
with it. Contact Hertz directly if you have questions about this
project, and please feel free to forward this call for submissions to
people that have something interesting to contribute on the topic of new
media art.  NEW MEDIA ART XYZ c/o Garnet Hertz, Canada Research Chair in
