perimeters, boundaries and borders
An interesting call for submission from artists, designers, architects, tinkerers and makers at www.fastuk.org.uk and www.folly.co.uk. They are looking for 9 existing works and in addition will be commissioning 6 new works
perimeters, boundaries and borders’ is an exhibition of contemporary art and design practice. It is especially concerned with object and spatially oriented disciplines, the use of digital technologies and the convergence of sculpture, product design and architecture. This exhibition will bring emerging and existing contemporary practitioners and technologies into the public arena and help to make cutting-edge developments in art and technology more accessible. ‘perimeters, boundaries and borders’ will be held from 29 September - 21 October 2006 at venues across Lancaster city centre in the North West of England. The main exhibition space will be the new CityLab development in Dalton Square. The aim of this exhibition is to present the very latest examples of work that blur the conventional boundaries of arts and design practice through the use of technology. The exhibition will include works which explore these creative perimeters, boundaries and borders including: computer-designed or manufactured objects and environments, visual and audio installations, pervasive and locative interactive artworks, computer games and 3D net based works.

Why do I blog this? Now that we're into space/place discussion, boundaries, perimeters and borders are certainly relevant because it allows to ask new questions regarding the relations between art and technology.
