Data In, Data Out

The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University is seeking submissions for “Data In, Data Out,” a group exhibition of contemporary art of all media. Exhibition dates are October 31 through December 16, 2011. $15/5 entries. Deadline, Friday, October 7th, 2011.

Curator Jeanne Brasile seeks artwork that is made using algorithmic processes. While there is no generally accepted formal definition of algorithm, it could informally be understood as “a set of rules that precisely defines a sequence of operations.” Using the above framework, the set of rules shall be the building blocks that define how an artwork will appear in its final form. It also defines the artists’ creative process. This practice is in opposition to an end result in which a pre-determined image is created through studies. Included artwork shall be a visual manifestation met by following a set of rules or instructions that dictate final visual form through specific acts of sorting, processing or enacting based on the collected data. Artwork is sought in all media to provide a broad interpretation of algorithmically based art. Although computer and digital art will be considered, this is not solely a call for digitally based media.
