The Society for Art and Science Tohoku Branch will hold a general competition, in which excellent works and assistant technologies for art work creation will be awarded. Details are as follows:
Competition entries should be interactive and non-interactive works and digital technologies in media arts. This will be a hybrid event with both online and in-person participation for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) countermeasures. For online submissions, entries will be accepted in the form of the artwork itself (still images, videos), or a video of the artwork (including a description of the piece and a demonstration). For in-person submissions (interactive works and digital technology), applicants will be required to present and demonstrate their work themselves on the day of the exhibition at the venue. Additionally, depending on changes in the social situation, the event may be changed to an online-only format. Some of the possible works and technologies are presented below, while the entries are not just limited to the examples.
Interactive contents and interactive systems: games, media arts, VR/MR contents, robots, interactive installations, physical computing, Web designs, ...
Still images and movie contents created using digital technologies: computer graphics, perspective drawings, design drawings, rendering, movie installations, animations, videos, projection mappings, ...
Digital technologies and tools that support creation of works and whose validity is confirmed through viewing: CG, CAD, CV, VFX, image/movie processing, communication technologies, sensor technologies, sound technologies, HI/VR devices, real-world interface, physical computation, simulation technologies, visualization technologies, display technologies, ...
(Note: If a presentation or demonstration is not conducted, please make efforts to enable the understanding of the appeal points of the work through the work itself or demo visuals.)
Works that do not have a presentation or demonstration on the day of the event will be exhibited online. Using the thumbnails and links submitted at the time of application, we will prepare an Art & Technology Tohoku 2023 portal site where you can view each applicant's work. Additionally, we plan to screen these works at the venue.
