Open call for projects. Deadline: August 31, 2008

International Project Development Workshop October 10 through 24, 2008
At the Cultural Center of Spain in Lima (Peru)

Organized by Medialab-Prado (The Arts Area - Town Hall of Madrid) and
the Cultural Center of Spain in Lima (Spanish Agency for International
Development Cooperation - AECID)

Call for the submission of projects to be developed as part of the
Interactivos? Lima'08: Magic and Technology workshop, led by Julian
Oliver (New Zealand/Spain), Clara Boj (Spain), Diego Díaz (Spain) and
Kiko Mayorga (Peru). At the end of the workshop, projects will be
exhibited at the Cultural Center from October 24 through November 6,

The call is aimed at artists, magicians, engineers, musicians,
programmers, designers, architects, hackers, psychologists, or any
other person interested in presenting a project on this topic.

Goals: to propose strategies of magic and illusion, in order to
harness some of the old and new technological resources to
collectively build software pieces and interactive installations which
can propose a rethinking of the usual scenario in magic tricks; to
broaden the topic through the exploration of the meanings of the magic
concept within the local context of Peru; to propose magic and
illusion as an approach for experiments on perception and attention,
behaviour and social relationships; and to propose a critical
viewpoint on the seduction of technology and its application on the
spectacle as a tool of persuasion and control.

The proposals will be carried out in multidisciplinary work groups
comprised by the author(s) and interested collaborators, with
conceptual and technical advice from the teaching staff.
