Call for Entries: NETWORKED – SciArt Center and The Nook Gallery

“Submissions surrounding the ideas, functions, structures, and results of BEING NETWORKED are encouraged.

DEADLINE:   April 29, 2019
LOCATION:  Los Angeles, Calif.
Submission Fee:  $20

Networks are everywhere; the human body contains networks for vital biological functions like genetic signaling, cellular metabolism, and neuronal communication. Organisms use networks to adapt and thrive, such as the “wood-wide web” of fungal tree root connections. Networks are a hallmark of modern life, from the networks of transportation to the multi-faceted network that is the Internet.

Networks connect us across scales, geographies, and time. In looking at the systems of life through the lens of network science, how does the structure of a network affect its function? What can we learn from the networks formed by the forces of nature, micro to macro? How have social networks changed with the influx of communication technologies like Facebook, Snapchat, and WhatsApp?

“NETWORKED” will be on view at The Nook Gallery (Los Angeles) from July 13th – August 29th, 2019.

Stephen Nowlin: How ArtScience Doubts the Supernatural

The supernatural is an oxymoronic entanglement that the arts must continue to unravel if they are going to pair with true science and assume with any integrity the mantle of ArtScience.

From Interalia Magazine:

This essay introduces two recent exhibitions and examines the origins of ArtScience in relation to the nineteenth century’s transition from representation to abstraction. While that progression was a seminal step in art history, the author proposes that a no less seismic impact resulted from its spatial reorientation – from expressions structured in pictorial imaginary space to those structured in actual, real space. That realignmnt echoed what science had been incrementally doing for four hundred years, by replacing fabricated comprehensions of reality with concrete ones – and in the process, shifting ontological and epistemological dispositions away from the supernatural and toward the natural…

NASA Invites You to Create James Webb Space Telescope-inspired Art

We want to offer more artists a chance to participate…

How?

  • Browse through NASA images and videos and see what inspires you.
  • Create art! (Note: this is not limited to art you can hang on a wall.)
  • Share it on social media.

Why?

In November 2016, a small group of artists was selected to visit NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, to see the James Webb Space Telescope in person, and to be inspired to create art. They have been busy ever since, producing amazing work that we are presenting for exhibit during Spring 2017 at the Goddard Visitor Center (date TBA).

Their offerings include painting, poetry, sculpting, textiles, woodworking, music, silk screening, 3-D design, jewelry, posters, tattooing and letterpress printing.

Though we were only able to physically accommodate a small number of artists, we were so impressed by the number of talented people who were interested in participating. We want to offer more artists a chance to participate virtually…
