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:
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
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
