PIXILERATIONS [v.4]: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

 a showcase of
 digital media and
 interactive performance
 September 28-October 13, 2007 | Providence, Rhode  Island
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: April 20, 2007
APPLY ONLINE AT www.pixilerations.org < http://www.pixilerations.org/> 
Submissions are accepted in the following categories
▫ Installations
▫ Do you have a minute?: multimedia projected works from 1 still image to 1 minute
▫ Film/video screening
▫ Interactive performance incorporating real-time music and/or video & sound-only acousmatic/radiophonic works
We are surrounded by stories. We are embedded in stories. And if we believe the poet Muriel Rukeyser that “the universe is made of stories, not atoms,” then we are these stories.
Stories must not be confused with just plain facts. Rather, facts draw whatever power they have from the stories they tell and their manner of telling. There is always something added to facts to make stories. One way to think about this something added is as ornament: a poetic metaphor, a musical riff, or a visual flourish can all serve to deepen and broaden the stories that support them.
Just as some stories are better served straight and to the point, the very meaning and beauty of others rests on the power of ornament to enhance, expand, and invoke. In both cases, it is nearly impossible to disentangle a story from its ornament.
Part of the larger FirstWorksProv festival, Pixilerations [v.4] investigates the state of New Media arts through installation, interactive concert performance and film/video screenings. Pixilerations [v.4] – the fourth annual showcase of New Media arts – invites artists, musicians and film/video makers to submit work that investigates connections or disparities between story and ornament.
The Pixilerations [v.4] Gallery opens the evening of Friday, September 28 and remains open for public viewing from noon to 8pm through October 13, 2007. Installations will be exhibited in the Sol Koffler Gallery in the Rhode Island School of Design’s Center of Integrative Technology located in the Mason Building at 169 Weybosset Street in downtown Providence.
Performances will be held on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29, 2007 (location TBA).
Hosted by the Magic Lantern Experimental Film Collaborative, a film/video screening is scheduled for the week of October 1, 2007 at the Cable Car cinema on South Main Street, Providence.

Leap of Faith

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

Contact: Risa Gilpin
e-mail: risa@rihumanities.org


 On this, the first day of Spring, the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities is excited to announce their annual spring series, this year, LEAP OF FAITH.  Under our Humanities Council’s overarching theme of “Common Ground: What Unites Us? What Divides Us?” our April/May series, LEAP OF FAITH unpacks “faith” as it relates to the part of the human spirit that allows us to leap without necessarily knowing where we’ll land.  The philosophical notion that not everything can be proved, that the humanities inform our understanding as much as scientific proof does.  Through artistic and creative endeavors we see the embodiment of this faith – shared visual, intellectual, poetic, musical experience connects something essential in human beings – we seek significance and meaning in our lives – this is the faith that we will focus on in this series of public programs.  These are uniting and dividing forces common to all humanity. 
 
Surprisingly, the Council has had to operate under it’s own particular brand of faith leaping these last few months, after a forced evacuation of it’s Westminster Street offices following a flood there in January.  Staff all leaped together – in order to continue operations and carry on the critical work of the humanities (with the help of wireless and human aides!) …but, that’s another story…
 

The Leap of Faith series opens with award winning poet Marge Piercy* (SEE SECOND PRESS RELEASE ON MARGE PIERCY) presenting a reading The Art of Blessing the Day on Thursday, April 19, 2007, at 7:00 pm at the First Unitarian Church, One Benevolent Street (corner Benefit), Providence, RI and closing with the Aurea Ensemble and Blair Thomas, Puppeteer presenting Grace Notes twice, on Sunday, May 20, 2007, 2:00 pm at the United Congregational Church, 4 Commons, Little Compton; and 7:30 pm, Beneficent Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, 300 Weybosset Street, Providence, RI. 
All events are FREE and open to the public.  The schedule unfolds as follows:
THURSDAY, APRIL 19, April 19, 2007;  7 pm 
First Unitarian Church, One Benevolent Street (corner Benefit Street), Providence, RI
Marge Piercy – The Art of Blessing the Day

Bring a poem you love, find a new or old one here (our well-stocked poetry shelves just happen to be in the Reading Room, where we gather for salons), recite one from memory, make one up on the spot, or just enjoy the variety of those read by others!
