ediblebook.jpgIt’s your last chance to participate in this year’s Edible Books and Tea event hosted by the Columbia College Library and Center for the Book and Paper Arts! —

According to the official press release… It can look like a book. It can act like a book. It can be a pun on a book. The only rule: it must be edible!

Bookmakers can contact event organizers by 5 p.m. on March 26 with entry name and book title to appear on the Edible Books’ menu. Entries must be delivered on April 1 between 5:30-6 p.m. at the Columbia College Library.

ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, a biannual DVD publication, is

currently accepting submissions of work for V16: Lo-tech, and V17: Hi-tech.

Artists have historically co-opted emerging technology, adapting and

expanding complex developments to suit their own goals. Conversely, there is

nostalgia for obsolete technology. We seek work that exploits antiquated or

sophisticated technology, either as an aesthetic or technical choice. We

will review installation, video, performance, sound, and any other work best

documented in time-based format.

ASPECT asks artist/commentator pairs to submit proposals of time-based work.

Commentators may be curators, historians, critics, or educators who can

offer a distinct perspective on the work. Criteria for selection will

include the qualifications of the commentator and the quality of the work. Audio recordings of the commentary will be assembled after the submissions have been selected.

V16: Lo-tech‹Due May 1, 2010

V17: Hi-tech‹Due August 1, 2010
