Visual Deflections: New Call for Artists

Visual Deflections returns as a showcasing opportunity for new and emerging artists working in lens-based imagery. Building on its previous success at the Roxy the project aims to stage a screening to provide an opportunity to engage with contemporary artists working with the moving image. There will also be a limited amount of space for video installation and still imagery.

The event will be held in Corbet Place in Shoreditch on the 29th August 2009, in association with Back to the Wood. The brickwork of this venue in the Old Truman Brewery provides a stripped back aesthetic for cutting edge music and contemporary art.

Work will be selected around the idea of Visual Deflections which infers the interruption of the image through distortions of time, movement, light and space. It may also suggest a manipulation of assumptions and identifications that reverberate between the spectator and the projected image.

- Images that would benefit from a durational viewing (eg projection). On CD jpeg or tiff (300 dpi)
