Zero One is seeking submissions for Terminal01 (T01), an interactive
networked art exhibition to be launched at Toronto Pearson
International Airport in the spring of 2007. T01 will consist
of a kiosk housing a touch-sensitive screen, an audio-video
output, an embedded web camera, sensors and projection screen.
Artists will be invited to create site-responsive computer
generated work based on their experience and interpretation
of air travel environs, airports, mobility, flight data and
networked communities. Emphasis will be given to works with
a generative component or works dealing directly with themes
relevant to travel (space-time).
TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Toronto’s Pearson International is ranked 22nd among
the world's busiest airports by international traffic and
receives over 30 million passengers per year. With a current
mandate to present a diverse range of exhibitions the
Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) will host the
T01 exhibition for a six month period in 2007. Designed by
Canadian architect Moshe
Safdie, Toronto Pearson's new Terminal
One empahsizes natural light and transparency: "
an attempt to demystify the chaos of travel, many details
in the building were designed to reveal the workings of an
airport terminal." T01 will be an extention of this notion
of transparency where artwork reveals complex processes through
visual and aural representations.
Please Submit Proposals through the
online submission form (Requires Flash 8 plugin). Deadline
for submissions is January 3, 2007. Artist fees paid. T01
is curated by Michael Alstad and David Jhave Johnston.
