VIPER Basel | Competition

The VIPER Basel | Competition 2004 is an international competition.
An independent jury will nominate and award the works and projects
submitted in the categories [imagination | processing |

This category is open to works and projects dealing with traditional
and future forms of the moving image.
Possible submissions include analogue and digital films/videos,
experimental films (including sound/video), 2D and 3D animations,
extended forms of traditional cinema, linear and non-linear narrative
image sequences, mobile and innovative screen formats, split- and/or
multiple-screen arrangements.
They may be complemented by modes of individual and collective
interaction if wished.

This category is open to works and projects that are characterised by
processes and live elements.
Installations or systems can be submitted that are devised to involve
a local situation and/or an audience actively, thus emphasising the
ability to interact and improvise when handling digital information
systems. This includes performances, immersive and hybrid
(real/virtual) environments, «play- and social software»
applications, «smart objects», «intelligent and ambient systems» as
well as interface and interaction design.

This category is open to works and projects emphasising acting and
communicating within technologically defined networks.
Applications, prototypes and concepts can be submitted that use or
specifically apply network architecture that functions independently
of time and place. This includes for example location-related and
distributed systems (LAN/WAN/ WIFI etc.), mobile computing, GPS
applications, infrared and Bluetooth connections. The key feature in
each case is an unusual and/or experimental use of technologically
defined network topographies.
