Signal Culture Cookbook Vol 2

The original Signal Culture Cookbook (edited by Tammy McGovern) is a nearly 300 page e-book featuring innovative techniques and creative practices employed by artists working in the field of experimental media art. Nearly 3 years after the original release, we are inviting artists, toolmakers and researchers to submit their unique recipes for the second edition of the Signal Culture Cookbook.

We are interested in proposals that push the boundaries of traditional how-to’s, tips and tricks found in most DIY publications. We are seeking innovative and unusual ways people work with video processing, image and sound manipulation, augmented reality, VR, mobile apps, “obsolete” hardware, social hacking or any other conceptual media-informed practice.

Previous articles in the first edition of the cookbook have included real-time glitch video processing, direct laser animation on film, transforming your drawing into a fake computer, wi-fi mapping, visualizing earthquakes in real time and using swarm algorithms to compose new musical structures. There’s even a great, humorous article on how to use offline technology for enhancing your online sentience. What unique perspectives and techniques would you like to share?

Proposals for articles need to include a brief description of your idea (500 words or less), a short bio/CV, 3 supporting images and/or URL of project idea, and your contact information to ATTN: Signal Culture Cookbook

Cookbook submissions will be selected by a competitive juried panel. Accepted articles should be no less than 500 words in length but no more than 2500 words and will need to include images that illustrate your idea. We can also include video and sound embedded with your article, when appropriate.

Deadline for proposals: March 10th 2018
If accepted, the deadline for completed articles is June 1st 2018

Please go to for information about the first cookbook.

Signal Culture is an experimental media art residency located in Owego, New York. We encourage the creation of new work, building of community, and connection to history in the field of experimental media art by providing artists, researchers, and innovators with residencies, resources, and exhibition opportunities.
