Call for Submissions: Blur+Sharpen Digital Screening Series

Blur + Sharpen is a monthly screening series at the University of
Southern California, dedicated to showcasing recent, experimental
digital media art that hovers at the intersection of design, motion
graphics, animation and video.

We are currently seeking submissions for two programs in Spring 2006:

             The Art of Remix: from re-generated Hollywood trailers
to database narratives, all forms of remixed images, sounds and
stories will be considered for this program

             The Pleasure of Text: this program explores innovative
uses of text as a central component of graphical, temporal and
spatial design.

Blur+Sharpen was founded in 2001 and is currently sponsored by the
Institute for Multimedia Literacy at USCís School of Cinema-
Television. The series is co-curated by Steve Anderson, Peter Oleksik
and Holly Willis and is free and open to the public. In addition to
having their work seen by an active community of faculty, students
and media makers, accepted contributors will receive a copy of the
program disk and have shipping/duplication costs reimbursed. There is
no fee to submit work to Blur+Sharpen.
