Calling For Informations
Chiara Passa is developping for Medialab in Madrid a project called Art Calling-Digital Art Stories.The purpose of the project is to bring people closer to digital art in an easy way. “Art Calling-Digital Stories” is a public art project that invites people to listen to stories about digital art (through phone booths used as a communicative medium).
People using “Art Calling-Digital Stories” only need to dial a telephone number (listed on sticker on the booth) which is linked to a switchboard (from a telephone company) with various vocal options and also various audio files. For instance, one of the audio files could be about software art and it will correspond to the phone’s #5 key. The person wanting to listen to information on software art, must call the number, hear all the vocal options and later push button #5. Inside the booth people will find another sticker with instructions about how to connect with different stories. Every tale will be told in English. The stories are about the most interesting artists, artworks and events on interactive art, software art, modified video games, demo scene, hacking tools, digital animation, video installation, sound art, from the beginning to present day, several selected by Passa herself.
The “Art Calling-Digital Stories” audio files will also contain additional materials such as bibliography, webography, info about artists, specific projects, festivals and various resources. Submissions regarding artistic material and artist’s works can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
