QUT Precints, IHBI and Science week 2010 brings to you Linear Progression; an exhibition showcasing creativity in science. Exploring the inherently aesthetic qualities of scientific images, the exhibition seeks to encourage scientists to consider their work, lab or self in a creative way.
We invite you to participate by submitting work in the form of a digital moving or static image produced as a result of your scientific work, representations of your lab space or yourself . Submissions need to be high quality and visually rich, inspired by the idea of Linear Progression, which could be shown either in one image or through a series of images that engage with each other.
We are unstoppable for we are fueled with an incredible urge to embrace the pleasure provided by difference, exchange and liberation. Our actions today are charged with an energy that is animated by the rise of change and a movement that is simply irresistible.
For its upcoming fourth edition, Montreal-based festival Artivistic is going sexy. From October 15 to 17, 2009, we invite participants to discuss, question, and imagine the proxemics of sexuality, technology and politics.
While keeping issues of power and control in question, we want to turn to the potency of pleasure, curiosity, humor, and desire in order to TURN*ON that which has yet to be thought and experienced differently.
Artists from across the globe will present leading edge art, created with electronic and digital technology, in an unprecedented multi-site exhibition in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Opening to the public on Friday, 7 August, the exhibition will continue through August. ISEA2009: The Exhibition will be on view at the Ormeau Baths Gallery, the Golden Thread Gallery, the Foyer Gallery of the University of Ulster Belfast campus, and at sites across the city in the public domain.

cover: HEIDE HATRY: HEADS AND TALESThe artist Heide Hatry initiated 3 years ago a collaborative project with 28 writers. The result was published as Heads and Tales by CHARTA Art Books, Milan/ New York in 2009. An exhibition will tour through the USA and Europe to promote the book.The portraits in Heads and Tales are photographic documentations of sculptures Heide Hatry created out of animal skin and body parts. She invited writers to select one image and create a life for her. As the work addresses issues of violence, death and gender identity, the writing reflects similar concerns as they are specific to women. “Finding a way to be a woman is finding a way to live with fatal knowledge,” says Catharine MacKinnon in her introduction, and Hatry and her collaborators speak that fatal knowledge which others are at pains to suppress.
