Run Computer, Run – GLITCH

Run Computer, Run focuses on the current economic, political and cultural factors that are shaping the Internet and the artistic responses to them through a series of exhibitions, seminars and a publication. The research will discuss and explore how the practice of the digital artist is transitioning, not only with the growth of digital technologies, but are increasingly being informed by offline factors that are affecting how the Internet as a creative platform is being developed. Run Computer, Run takes place during GLITCH festival at Rua Red from May 24 – July 13.

We are currently accepting submissions for the following categories:

How do we give value to immaterial goods? How do we buy and sell digital images? What is the relationship between economics and digital aesthetics? How can curators and artists create new platforms and models for the creation of economic exchange? These are some of the questions that this show attempts to answer. We are currently accepting artwork (video, jpg, gifs, 3d models or HTML content) that will feature in a unique gallery-based exhibition. The exhibition is composed of two parts – a gallery-sited virtual show, and the online production and distribution of materially-realised limited-edition goods.

In the gallery, each artist will be represented by an AR-code – an augmented reality marker embedded with visual information that can only be viewed with the aid of a computer or smart-phone. As visitors walk through the gallery, they can interact with the markers using either their smart-phone or one of the tablets that will be provided by the gallery.

The artwork submitted will then be produced as a series of limited-edition goods including apparel and digital prints. These goods will be made available online for the duration of GLITCH.

The following products will be produced for each artist included in this exhibition:
1 Limited Edition Tee (run of 20)
1 Limited Edition tote bag (run of 20)
1 A5 postcard
1 A3 digital print (run of 30)

These goods will be made available via this website for the duration of GLITCH.

All profits from the sale of these goods go to the corresponding artist.
