And great it is!
Big congrats to you Honor, one of those talks that makes you wonder why on
Earth (so to speak) it's never been given before. In other words, one of the
important ones ;)
I thought some of you might be interested in two major new
commissions we are calling for expressions of interest for. We seek
to commission two artists, each with a strong international track
record, to create two new works which will be exhibited as part of
Brighton Festival 2012, England's largest arts festival.
I am including the brief below. The deadline is 11 July.
If you know anybody who you think might be interested in this, I'd be
thrilled if you could forward this on to them.
Voices of the Sea
Call for expressions of interest
11 July 2011
Voices of the Sea is a unique commissioning opportunity created by a
partnership of arts organisations. In Brighton and Hove, UK: Fabrica,
Blast Theory, Brighton Festival, Lighthouse, Photoworks, the
University of Brighton and in France, the Musee de Beaux Arts Calais.
We seek to commission two artists, each with a strong track record,
to create two major new works, responding to the coastal context and
maritime heritage of South East England.
The commissions are inspired by The Boat Project
http://www.theboatproject.com by Lone Twin, beginning its maiden
voyage in 2012 and visiting Brighton as part of Brighton Festival.
The commissions are part of RELAY, a programme by Turning Point South
East (a network of visual arts organizations). Like The Boat Project,
RELAY is connected to the Cultural Olympiad 2012.
A gallery-based commission - Voices of the Sea
Exhibited at Fabrica, Brighton in April-May 2012
For Voices of the Sea, the commissioning partnership is seeking
expressions of interest from visual artists, with an international
profile, who wish to create a new work to be exhibited at Brighton's
leading contemporary art gallery, Fabrica. It is also anticipated
that the work will be exhibited at Musee de Beaux Arts Calais in late
Fabrica is based in a former Regency church in the heart of Brighton.
It commissions new works, and re-frames existing contemporary visual
art installations in relation to the building. Recent exhibitions
have featured artists such as Janet Cardiff, Frederic Guerts, Martin
Parr, Brian Eno and Anish Kapoor.
Expressions of interest for Voices of the Sea should illustrate a
clear connection to the thematic concept set out in the briefing
document, should be strongly visual in nature and also demonstrate
how the artist utilises digital technologies within their practice.
We are particularly interested in artists who work with photography,
moving image and/or digital and interactive media.
A site-specific outdoor work / or mobile media work - Sea of Voices
For Sea of Voices, the partnership is seeking expressions of interest
from artists who wish to create a site-specific work, which will link
the exhibition at Fabrica with The Boat Project. It is envisaged that
Sea of Voices will act as a "conceptual mooring line", between
Fabrica on Ship Street, and the Brighton Marina, where The Boat
Project will be docked, during it's visit to Brighton.
We seek to commission a work creatively signposting the route between
the two locations. It may take the form of a sound-walk, it may take
the form of a mobile or pervasive media project, or it may exist in
another form, as defined by the artist.
Expressions of interest should illustrate a clear connection to the
thematic concept set out in the briefing document. We welcome
proposals from artists who work with digital and interactive media,
pervasive gaming, locative media and mobile applications.
We are equally interested in artists who have strong site-specific,
or location-based practices, who may wish to use other media to
develop an outdoor artwork.
As part of the educational and participative activities which will
complement the commissions, we will be collecting comments and
stories about Brighton and its coastal context. This audio material
may be used as a resource for the Sea of Voices. As such, we also
welcome proposals from artists who work with sound as a medium.

Kia ora all,
If you have 10 minutes and would like to try a quick online usability
test for the National Library, please go to http://bit.ly/lp74lI
If you're not familiar with these - it just asks you a series of
questions about where you would look for specific information. Based
on everyone's answers we can see what additional headings & links
might be needed.
Totally inspiring Honor.
And great it is!
Big congrats to you Honor, one of those talks that makes you wonder

I've rarely applied for a residency because until recently I had children to consider, however I did one residency in Aotearoa for
2 mths in Whanganui taking my then 6 year old son with me and leaving the other with his father and it was fabulous.
And it was an excellent networking opportunity for me.
Here in Europe where I've lived for the past 20 years I've not applied for any residencies because it was not possible to take a child with me
or it was geared for a single person, or because of my age. I moved to the Netherlands when I was 29 and most residencies and other opportunities have an age
limit of 30 or 35 and in those first years it was impossible for me with young children to apply anyway.
However I've done short term projects, 2 or 3 week things which were like residencies in that I had accomodation and some funding and often there
was a goal at the end such as a festival or exhibition adn I've found even the more chaotic experiences useful.
Such as being stuck in the North of Finland for 2 weeks with promises of equipment for a video installation and then finding that there was
nothing and no tools and being with people who seemed so distant.
So I just had to go and find a solution. (I usually make it a mission to learn a handful of phrases of the language when I'm somewhere
and having done this for years, now that's not such a big deal, until I hit Finnish :))
Anyway even that was an amazing experience because of the difficulties and although I swear I'll never ever want to have any sort of network in Finland (:))
of course the experiences I had, have made me a richer person. And I have amazing footage. At one point I was so angry with my inability to communicate, that I
took my video camera and set it up on a tripod in the middle the town's central intersection and footpath,
and filmed people passing by while staring back at them. So I'd say that even chaotic residencies are useful.
I'd argue for institutes keeping open calls because it is an opportunity for fresh blood. If institutes only invite those they want, they will only get the known.
And besides if an institute wants a particular artist they can always invite that artist to apply, or alternate the process,
with one year an invite and another year an open call.
Re: the work in applying. Well I don't do this very often, but if I do apply, I see the process of applying being about
sorting out how I present what I'm presenting and so even though, I particularly hate having to write an "artist statement" in Dutch
I know it isn't a waste of time because it is about types of message or path or vision (in words) which for me is also part
of the art making /presenting process, even if I not conscious of this type of process, while working on a new project.
