Aphids call for audio and video works
Aphids would like to invite you and your network of artists to become involved in Forever Now (www.forevernow.me), an international project seeking submissions of one-minute audio or video works that will be transmitted into space. Forever Now is a curatorial project that responds to our cultural obsession with immortalising ourselves. In the footsteps of the Golden Record sent into space in 1977 on the Voyager space probe, curators Willoh S. Weiland, Brian Ritchie, Jeff Khan and Thea Baumann, will work the international community to research, curate and create a golden record to send into space. Eighty-eight audio-visual works will be selected to be launched into space as part of a spectacular concert in January 2015.
Submissions close on 1st June, 2014 and can be uploaded at www.forevernow.me
