Call for Applications

BIP 2007: BUILDING INTERACTIVE PLAYGROUNDS :: Elettrowave, July 20-21, 2007 – Florence [Stazione Leopolda] :: We are currently accepting applications to participate in BIP 2007, a festival about interaction design projects for events and public spaces.

After the great success of BIP 2006 edition in Arezzo (43 high quality proposals received from 12 different countries and 4 selected and presented projects) BIP goes to Florence, together with Italiawave and Elettrowave.

BIP is an international competition for interaction design projects for public events. Through an international call for works, opened to interaction designers, artists, researchers, architets and students, it aims to select, invite and show interactive installations, specifically conceived for events and public spaces. Simple and straight-forward projects, involving exploration, irony, play and social relationships, that can intrigue a curious and young audience. Projects that are able to transform festival locations into programmed spaces, active processes, playing with time, space and people.

Interaction Design applied to an electronic music festival's environment: nightlife, clubbers, a young, unrespectuful and challenging audience. BIP is an arena in which music and design live together and talk to each other, trying to tear down the usual distinctions between high & low, entertainment and research.

All project proposals must be submitted by May 10, 2007

More informations about BIP 2007 call for works and submission rules are available at: www.todo.to.it/bip2007

In the context of BIP - building interactive playgrounds festival Arsnova - Accademia per le Arti e le Scienze Digitali, in collaboration with Elettrowave and Associazione Culturale NADA, organizes Touchdown!, an intensive workshop about physical computing applied to videogames.
