Type of opportunity: Digital Artwork for Dome by Indigenous artists and/or about Indigenous people

Organization name: Digital Dome at Institute of American Indian Arts: College of Contemporary Arts (IAIA)
Santa Fe, New Mexico

Description of opportunity:
The Institute of American Indian Arts: College of Contemporary Native Arts is pleased to announce a call for digital artwork for their new Digital Dome. The Digital Dome @ IAIA seeks digital works by Indigenous artists or about Indigenous people. The work will be selected by Ethan Bach, Digital Dome Director and Ryan Rice, Museum for Contemporary Native Arts Curator and will be programmed to coincide with ISEA2012.
Entries are sought that utilize the immersive environment. Fulldome work or other digital work will be considered including video (with or without audio), digital still images, animation, 3D objects and panorama photography. A residency/workshop on producing artwork for the Digital Dome will be considered, dependent on funding.

Project resources:
Digital Dome technology and staff will be available to selected artists.

Description of site/venue:
The Digital Dome @ IAIA offers a unique combination of black box, planetarium, fulldome, and the world’s only full range articulating dome. The dome structure weighs 8,000 pounds, hangs from the ceiling, and can rotate 0° to 90° or can be place near the ceiling or the floor. This immersive, high-resolution environment is created by a 24-foot wide spherical screen, six projectors, and a 6.1 surround sound system. The Digital Dome @ IAIA is involved in groundbreaking research funded by the National Science Foundation for the fulldome, including the ability to display interactive content in collaboration with UNM ARTSLab and the Santa Fe Complex.
