> Call for Proposals
> Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland is seeking
> proposals for an upcoming major exhibition and festival HACK THE CITY
> Call Opens: Monday 5 December
> Call Closes: Friday 20 January
> Exhibition duration: 22 June 2012 – 07 September 2012
> Festival dates: 11-15 July 2012
> Calling all hackers, makers, doers, data nerds, hobbyists, artists,
> citizen scientists, tech geeks, activists, edgy engineers and DIY
> urban planners...
> Science Gallery is seeking proposals for its 2012 flagship
> exhibition HACK THE CITY launching in June 2012. HACK THE CITY is
> curated by Teresa Dillon - Lead Curator/Researcher & artist, Linda
> Doyle - Director of CTVR, Josh Klein - TED Speaker and author of
> Hacking Work, Martin Kelly - IBM Venture Capital Group and Michael
> John Gorman - Director of Science Gallery.
> Currently more than half of the world’s population lives in towns
> and cities. This trend is expected to continue. Between 2025-2030
> of the approximate 8 billion people who will live in the world 5
> billion will live in cities. Yet the majority of our city
> infrastructures are based on inherited historical layouts and systems.
> Science Gallery’s 2012 flagship exhibition and festival HACK THE
> CITY will rethink our cities from the ground up through the spirit
> and philosophy of the hacker ethos - to bend, mash-up, tweak and
> cannibalise our city systems, to create possibilities, illustrate
> visionary thinking and demonstrate real-world examples for
> sustainable urban futures. It will capitalize on Dublin city’s
> history, legacy, population and infrastructure, transforming the
> city itself into a nimble “playground” and live urban hack lab.
> The exhibition and events will explore hacking for good – the
> repurposing of useful resources, the innovators who customise
> existing tools for new uses and who purposefully challenge existing
> hierarchies. What creative ways can we release untapped resources,
> harnessing what maybe considered as by-products or waste, to create
> alternative systems for public good?
> HACK THE CITY is Science Gallery’s major international exhibition
> and festival for 2012 and a flagship programme of Dublin City of
> Science. We are interested in receiving proposals for experiments,
> exhibits and events, which go beyond Science Gallery in to the city
> of Dublin and even connect multiple cities globally. Potential
> venue partnerships include The Ark, Temple Bar, Dublin and
> international partnerships with ZER01 in San Jose, California.
> Working with our international partners and local councils we will
> be creating city zones, which will test potential new technologies,
> creating situations for energy visualization, play, social
> networking and communications.
> As a centrepiece in Dublin’s tenure as European City of Science
> 2012, we are especially interested in submissions which utilise
> Dublin’s position, geography and demographic – as the capital of a
> small island, on the periphery of Europe, struggling to recover
> from a post-economic boom and the European home for a number of key
> multinational tech companies (IBM, Google, Facebook), innovators
> and entrepreneurs. Drawing on this vibrant community we encourage
> novel approaches to social and commercial ideas, which can be
> piloted and prototyped during HACK THE CITY.
> The exhibition will include existing and proposed works,
> innovations and inventions around the theme of HACK THE CITY. The
> exhibition will extend beyond the gallery through workshops, labs,
> events and off-site projects with Science Gallery becoming a hub
> connecting difference city zones to mobile and online worlds.
> Alongside artworks, designed objects and documentary artefacts,
> HACK THE CITY will encourage thinking differently about how we set
> up new business products and services, which address our urban
> demands, plus include special live performances, innovative
> installations, unique physical and mental experiences, high-profile
> talks, discussions and debates, web-focused interactions, games and
> collaborative experiences.
> We are seeking proposals for:
> Mass-participation experiments
> New products/services/start-ups
> Visualizations, maps and mashups
> Through our association with The Ark we are also interested in
> proposals which cater directly to a younger audience. You can find
> out more about The Ark's call, which is on the theme of
> biodiversity herehttp://ark.ie/downloads/
> Suggested areas of focus include:
> Augmenting the City – submissions that repurpose the physical city
> environs to allow a significant unique interaction with the
> surrounding city landscape, including AR apps
> City based projects, objects and experiences in the areas of public
> art / street art / community / new media, technology and design.
> Particular attention will be paid to projects that rethink and
> recycle the slack spaces in the city, uncover subcultures, subvert
> and reveal the architectural blueprint of the city itself.
> Projects which allow the city dweller to interact with and
> interject into the city, both in terms of its systems and
> infrastructure as well as it’s physical form.
> Particular attention will be paid to robust projects that have a
> significant visual impact or presence in the city itself and are
> designed to be economic with the available resources and tools.
> These projects should also contain a significant element that can
> be integrated into the Science Gallery exhibition space.
> We are particularly interested in receiving submissions, which are
> Dublin specific as well as projects, which refer to the global
> urban environment or connect different cities
> We are interested in projects that may have an element of longevity
> that can exist beyond the time span of the exhibition itself.
> Urban experiments – submissions which utilize the infrastructure,
> data and citizens of the city to carry out experiments
> Future of the City - submissions, which think broadly and diversely
> about how we live in cities, support subversion and play and allow
> our audience to experience live mappings of the dynamic city (flow
> of energy, transport, capital and people) and gain new insights
> into our future cities
> Playing with data - submissions for works, which connect data forms
> and physically embody data streams, bridging ‘on’ and ‘off’ line
> New business products and services – ideas which have commercial
> viability and provide sustainable solutions for our urban needs,
> including the use of open data, data mash ups and remixes
> Please feel free to forward this e-mail and link to other forums and
> individuals and do please contact us at
> teresa.dillon sciencegallery.com if you would like to suggest
> projects or people for the exhibition.
> We welcome projects that come with external funding. The maximum
> amount of budgetary support available for each approved application
> is €5,000. Each project must be delivered within this maximum
> production budget, which should include all fees, materials,
> shipping and travel costs as well as any other cost that may arise
> from participation in Hack the City. Please note that the
> production budget available for event-based proposals is
> significantly less and support will be given on a case-by-case basis.
