Signs of Our Times 3
no deadline for ongoing blog
An international call for works in .jpeg format only, sent via internet to be:
1. Displayed on The Signs of Our Times blog for posterity
2. A new deadline will be set at some point for the next exhibition
(possibly at the new Mobius space in 2012).
All properly formatted works will be accepted; this is not a juried show. You may submit up to 3 “new”* works, that is, if you are already featured in a blog post numbered less than #231, you are welcome and encouraged to submit up to 3 more works.
Have you ever been walking, bicycling, driving, sitting in a bus or train and suddenly seen a sign which made you do a double take? or seen a sign whose meaning escaped you or initially gave you pause and then perhaps you comprehended its meaning or didn’t? or a sign which made no sense at all? or a sign that just made you laugh or cry hysterically for some unfathomable reason?
This call is about those puzzling/surreal/emotionally evocative signs of our times. “Of our times” is defined as either drawing from your own personal experience/history or the collective’s present, near past or imagined future.
RULES AND REGULATIONS:
Please submit one of the following:
a photograph of an actual sign with or without text in any language and with or without other accompanying information/text/graphics,
photograph of a work in any media which is your interpretation or memory of an actual sign with or without accompanying information/text/graphics
an imaginary sign which may or may not contain text in any language which would prove thought-provoking or puzzling or even humorous to another observer of your imagined sign. In this last case, the actual jpeg file might actually BE the sign if you wish OR you can submit a photograph of the sign you created in some other media.
In essence, the actual signs may be real or something created or manipulated by you in any media but the actual work you submit must be in the form of a jpeg file sent via the internet.
Please email the following to: Jane @ mobius.org
