The opportunity – Open Artist Call for Interactive Data Sculpture for our 2023 Exhibition

The MOD. exhibition for 2023, FLEX, will invite visitors to consider pushing limits.
The exhibition will explore provocations like:

This exhibition will explore concepts associated with flexing boundaries. FLEX will invite visitors to question what they are capable of and where the limits are in their future. It will engage visitors in identifying what is possible and what we might want to avoid.

MOD. is inviting submission from artists for inclusion within the Gould Interactive Gallery.  In this space we are exploring how we set limits as a collective:

What ethical frameworks do we use to place limits on our actions and behaviour? 

Where are the ethical boundaries for new technologies and scientific research?

Who decides?

In doing so we are inviting you to propose an interactive artwork that allows visitors to respond to a set of ethical questions exploring these issues.

Your design outcome must fulfil the requirements of the brief.  Some questions that might provoke your thinking around this include:

The Brief:

Theme: Interactive data sculpture

Media: Sculpture in media as deemed appropriate by the artist.

Target audience: Young adults aged 15-25
