Sound & Vision, 2022
Mark Watkins, Staffordshire, UK
/DRI:M/SPACE is hosting an Open Call for collage art for the second issue of the magazine which will be available as a PRINT publication and DIGIMAG. Collagists are challenged to enter works that fit the brief:
Sound & Vision
From the Co-Curator, Mark Watkins:
The ‘cut up’ writing technique made famous by author William S. Burroughs inspired the likes of David Bowie, Kurt Cobain and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke - cutting out sentences, phrases and words and rearranging them to create lyrics for poetry and songs. Lyrical collage!
For this callout:
Choose a favourite song. Select one line from the lyrics and let that be the inspiration for a collage.
Include the chosen lyric with your submission.
So dust off your vinyl or plug in the iPod but be sure to turn up the volume!
All open call entries require a non-refundable submission fee >
$5 for 1 entry, $10 for 2+ entries.
All participants will receive a copy of the DIGIMAG (normally $10.99!), the same stunning publication as the print edition in a responsive digital flip-book format.
This non-refundable submission fee goes towards printing costs, design, shipping supplies, and hosting fees.
*/DRI:M/SPACE does not want to deter anyone from participating due to the submission fee! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work it out.
Deadline to Apply > April 17, 2023
Format > Provide high-res images @300dpi minimum, which is suitable for soft & hard-copy publications. Once you pay the submission fee an email will be sent to you with instructions on how to submit your image.
Share > On Instagram using the hashtag #drimspacesoundandvision - let's inspire each other with our entries!
Selected artists will be notified via email.
Personal invites will be extended to a selection of open call winners to collaborate on Issue 03 and, in return for their participation, will receive a double-page artist spread with bio/statement.
One collagist will be chosen to grace the cover of Issue 02 and will be the next co-curator for /DRI:M/SPACE Issue 03.
