Read_me 2.3

Software Art Festival

May 30 - 31, Media Centre Lume, Helsinki, Finland

Deadline for entries: March 1

More info at: http://m-cult.org/read_me

Read_me 2.3 is a festival of software art that explores the territory 
between art and software culture. Read_me 2.3 draws connections between 
histories and practices in both software culture and art, and aims at 
creating an extended context, against which software art may be mapped.

Read_me 2.3 is the second edition of Read_me, the first festival dedicated 
entirely to the phenomena of software art (Read_me 1.2 at: 
http://www.macros-center.ru/read_me ).

Read_me 2.3 continues with the open structure of Read_me: all projects are 
submitted on-line to a publicly accessible database. However, the second 
Read_me edition has logically developed this idea further: the simple 
database / submission form has turned into the software art repository 
Runme.org (http://runme.org).

All projects, submitted to Runme.org up to the Read_me 2.3 deadline (1 of 
March) will be reviewed by a collective of  "experts" 
(http://m-cult.org/read_me/experts) and the best ones will be presented on 
the Read_me 2.3 event.

Read_me 2.3 is not a competition in the traditional sense, and it will not 
have monetary prizes. The festival event on May 30-31 will present, 
discuss, and celebrate a selection of works singled out and featured 
without ranking by the Read_me experts collective. Read_me 2.3 will
focus on the variety of discrete contexts and will aim at building bridges 
between them.

To submit a project for Read_me 2.3 go to 
http://m-cult.org/read_me/submit.php and follow instructions.

If you have any questions, please, contact og@dxlab.org and alexei@easylife.org


The project is a co-operation between NIFCA, The Nordic Institute for 
Contemporary Art (http://www.nifca.org), Lume (http://www.lume.fi),
and m-cult (http://www.m-cult.org).
