Call for Contributions: Video Vortex Split: Online Video and the Arts

On 22-23 May, 2008 the fourth edition of Video Vortex will take place in
Split, Croatia. Department of Film and Video by the Academy of Arts
University of Split and Platforma 9.81 with Institute of  Network  
from Amsterdam will organize the event. After previous events on Online
video and responses to YouTube in Brussels, Amsterdam and Ankara, this
event will focus on the moving image on the Web.

We invite contributions for the following themes:

- Telepresence and Web Aesthetics
Video meets Web Aesthetics: how is the phenomenon of telepresence
incorporated in various art forms, such as music, theater, visual arts,
literature and cinema? What are underlying aesthetics in all of them and
what are specific interface contexts.

- Social Cinema
Has cinema found its way onto the Web? Did it change the essential
features of cinema? What are the new possibilities of collaborative
production? Does the future of Film museums and Cinematheques lie in the
on line cinematic databases?

- Architecture and Moving Image
Online video offers an immense database for the moving image to be
displayed in urban public space.  What are the existing  
visions of this future? (think Blade Runner, Minority Report,  
Children of
Men,etc.) Which visions can be directly implemented and which will  
film scenography?

- Video Sharing
Distribution, licensing, collaborative production, video hosting,  
What are
the standards and alternatives for sharing, licensing and hosting moving
images on the Web?

- Technology and politics of the moving image
Future of visual browsers. Control of moving image communication. Moving
image production in relation to cultural, technological and political
dominances. Open standards and codex politics. Surveillance issues.

- Literature and video online narrative
Narrative strategies on the web. From screenplay writing with hyper  
broadcasted self and narrative avatars to collective narrative processes
leading to web literature, tag based video narrativity, public  
and performative real time literature.

Please send in a 500-word abstract and a short bio to Dan Oki
(danoki  xs4all.nl) before February 5, 2009.
