*Submissions close midnight Sun 28 Mar*
We are seeking to commission an artist, group or studio to create an 
art-game exploring ecology and the Anthropocene, responding to the 
Daisyworld Simulation <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daisyworld>. We are 
open to proposals that use gaming as a medium in its widest sense, 
however it is important to consider how the work could be exhibited in a 
gallery setting and published online, using platforms such as Steam and 

Phoenix has previously commissioned a number of game-based works that 
have been exhibited physically and published online. These include The 
Indifferent Wonder of an Edible Place by Studio Oleomingus 
and Killbox by Joseph DeLappe.

Daisyworld is a computer simulation created in the 1980s by James 
Lovelock and Andrew Watson to demonstrate the Gaia hypothesis proposed 
by Lovelock and Lynn Margulis in the 1970s. This is the idea that Earth, 
and all its inhabitants form a self-regulating system. In order for life 
to survive on a planet, it must optimise the environment, which happens 
through evolutionary responses.


  * £4000 Commission fee to cover production of work.
  * Development support during the production of the work.
  * In venue and online exhibition (with a separate budget).
  * Publishing and distribution to online platforms.


Applications will close at midnight on Sunday 28th March.
Shortlisted applicants will be contacted by Monday 5th April.
We would like to interview shortlisted applicants.

The full callout information, accessible versions and application form 
can be found on our website,
