THE ART OF ISOLATION

hands-20333_1280.jpg

The pandemic is still here, yet we continue to network our analog bodies into global liminal spaces from our homes, and zoomed rooms​ — reaching out, beyond moments of isolation, joining a web of creatives, thinkers, makers, cultural weavers, students, and educators to tell the story of living through a pandemic. Together, we comprise a fiberoptic village of hackers, DIY content providers, artists, songwriters, technologists, and sound and art ecologists.

As a real-time ear- and eyewitness, Soundbox4 invites you to submit your unique way of creating during 2020. We imagine both solo and community-based collaborations. Open to wide interpretation ranging from isolation, perpetual selfies, communities in mediated dialog, glitches and technology breakdown, climate change, eco-art, personal identity, culture, social change, and activism. Be bold: Submit work that challenges arbitrary boundaries between peoples, disciplines, geographies, beliefs, genders, politics, race, and identities.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submit work by midnight Sunday, Feb. 7.  Digital works should be no longer than 10 minutes but can range anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes. Prerecorded “live” performances should be 15 minutes or less. Send a link to your work to soundbox97331@gmail.com.
