Calls for Entry


Deadline: March 1, 2015  

Deadline extended! April 6, 2015

An open call for those artworks that act as independent agents and explore the cross-section of analog and digital media. In this age of the internet of things, where our toasters communicate over the internet and robots vacuum our floors, this exhibition explores those artistic objects or their 2D and 3D representations which appear to be responsive to our existence, or at least demand an empathy if not an emotion, that we give to sentient beings. Creative Arts Workshop, 80 Audubon Street, New Haven, CT 06510 Prospectus
