The Autorino Center for the Arts invites submissions from artists who break new artistic ground with an experimental and pioneering spirit to create an interactive, site specific AUDIO/VIDEO WALK inspired by Janet Cardiff's work. Using the University of Saint Joseph as the backdrop, artists are challenged to create an Augmented Reality experience utilizing a live, direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by sensory input such as, pre-recorded performance, sound, video, graphics and/or GPS data, and thereby interacting with art and the campus.
Proposals should create an immersive and interactive audio/video walk that transforms a tour of the USJ campus, into an absorbing and immersive experience that engage the listeners using their own smart/wireless devices. Artists are invited to create unique experiences through layers of 3-dimensional sound, narratives (concrete or abstract), visuals and/ or interactive with the permanent elements of the campus. We encourage you to be creative and push the boundaries of emerging technologies that support the mission of the University of Saint Joseph.
Following the RFP Deadline, the review committee will conduct a review of all proposals and will short list up to 4 applicants for interviews and further consideration. The review committee will make the final selection and all applicants will be notified of status.
Proposals must be submitted by email and received on or before 10:00 PM on Monday, May 22, 2016 Proposals must include:
