Make It Yourself... Call For Existing Works Answered
Cybersonica with Openlab Workshops and Manchester Art Gallery present:
Make It Yourself
CALL FOR EXISTING WORKS
Make It Yourself is an exhibition of inventive Arduino and DIY electronic-circuitry projects to accompany the major solo exhibition Recorders by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer at Manchester Art Gallery between 18 September 2010 to 30 January 2011. See http://www.manchestergalleries.org/whats-on/exhibitions/index.php?itemID=73 for more information.
A rapidly expanding community of people worldwide is taking advantage of new, cheaper technology and a growing pool of shared knowledge to make things for themselves – useful things, clever things, silly things, unique things. Make It Yourself is a ‘small but perfectly formed’ show of a handpicked half-dozen of these hand-made devices.
We are now accepting submissions of existing Arduino and DIY electronic-circuitry projects from artists, hobbyists, hackers, DIY musicians and anyone interested in making things for themselves wishing to exhibit their work as part of Make It Yourself.
We are looking for pieces that reveal and demonstrate:
- unique devices born out of imagination or happy accident
- how everyday artefacts actually work
- custom-made tools born out of a frustration that nothing else quite does the job
- modified consumer products that now do something their manufacturers never conceived of
We expect creators of selected works to provide a project ‘info pack’ of design schematics, component lists, code and step-by-step assembly instructions.
Deadline: Monday, 13 September 2010
Notification: Friday 17 September 2010
