Looping the Loop, Dublin: An invitation to full time students

PRIZE - Euro 1200
An invitation to full time students to submit work for projection in Meeting
House Square, Dublin

Deadline for submission - 1st April 2002

Full time graduate and postgraduate students are invited to submit work on
video to Looping the Loop an international exhibition of student work
selected from open competition.

As a part of the 7th European League of Institutes of Art's [ELIA]
conference Dublin 24-26 October 2002 the selected work will be presented as
an open air projection in Dublin's Meeting House Square which is set in the
centre of the ever popular cultural district of Temple Bar. The conference
theme is C=F3mhar, the Irish equivalent of the English word 'reciprocity'.=
is hoped that submitted works should reflect the spirit of this process in
their regard for the role that the audience play in the face of the work.

Please check out the conference website, which is accessible via

We are all familiar with the simple device of looping short video work onto
longer one hour or three hour video cassettes. These tapes are then in turn,
set to the repeat button on the video recorder. The ease of presentation
availed by this simple but effective method has played a major role in
bringing video art into the mainstream of work currently to be found in the
gallery. On the other hand the concept of the loop has been used since the
earliest days of film animation as an integral part of the action of the
work itself. Cyclical works that bring us back to the beginning only to
repeat the action have fascinated audiences for generations. This method of
presentation is not only eminently suitable to presenting individual works
but is also appropriate to the video compilation format which itself can be
looped. As an outdoor public space Meeting House Square has a recent history
of film and video projection but by it's very nature also catches a wider
audience of people who are just passing by. This 'passing audience' are far
more likely to engage with the work projected if they get caught in the loop
of the action of the work itself.

If you would like to submit video loops [silent or with sound] of no more
than three minutes duration or if you have work that you think would be
suitable for looping please send work on VHS or DV standard to:

The Selection Committee
'Looping the Loop'
National College of Art and Design
