STRP art & technology festival : CALL FOR PROJECTS - extended Deadline 10 JULY

The first edition of the STRP festival will take place in
Eindhoven(Netherlands) between the 18th and 20th of November 2005. Its
focus is on the commonalities between art, popular culture and
technology. As part of the festival there will be performances,
exhibits and presentations in a historical space. STRP will take place
on the 'holy' ground of the forbidden city of Philips, where in the
20th century numerous technological innovations were made. A place
where Einstein worked at one point and where one of the most ambitious
amalgamations of the arts and technology took place: "Poeme
Electronique," a collaboration between the architect LeCorbusier with
architect/composer Iannis Xenakis, artist Jean Petit, composer Edgard
Varese and filmmaker Phillipe Agostini. Coincidence or not, Dick
Raaijmakers also was closely involved in this project. STRP gets its
inspiration from this amalgamation of technology and art.


STRP is looking for projects/installations/proposals that fit under
one of the following themes:

1) Press "Start" : gaming, interactive installations and playful art
works, in which the public can take an active role in the experience
and realization of the work.

2) WE ARE THE ROBOTS : robots, robort art, installations.
