|EXPERIMENTA ILLUMINATION THE LIGHT IN WINTER SCREENING PROGRAM AT FEDERATION SQUARE |
Curated exclusively for Federation Square's 'The Light in Winter' Festival, Experimenta presents a short programme of screen based works by Australian and international artists screening on Federation Square's Big Screen throughout June 2012. Experimenta Illumination includes artists Timothy Casten (Australia), Joe King & Rosie Pedlow (UK), Bruce Mowson (Australia), Nicolas Provost (Belgium) and Sandra Selig (Australia). Together these artworks explore curious moments of life and light. King and Pedlow revisit the sighting of 'unexplained lights' in Rendlesham Forest thirty years on; Provost's hypnotically recomposed aerial shots of the Las Vegas skyline reveal its beauty and madness; Selig reflects quietly on the night time; Casten explores the ambiguity of gesture and familiarity on screen; and Mowson films a woman as she experiences Melbourne in a new light.
Experimenta Illumination will screen twice daily for the duration of 'The Light in Winter' Festival 1 June - 1 July 2012. This week, 4 - 8 June times will be 2-3.10pm and 5.30 - 6.40om. Check the Federation Square Big Screen schedule for further details.

Synopsis: When Margot (Michelle Williams) meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses the sudden attraction, as she lives a quiet and comfortable life with her husband Lou (Seth Rogen). With her marriage content but more cuddly than carnal, when Margot discovers Daniel is her new neighbour, the certainty about her domestic life shatters. Margot is forced to choose between the comfort of the familiar and the exhilaration of the unknown. Take This Waltz leads us, breathlessly, through the familiar but uncharted question of what long-term relationships do to love, sex and our images of ourselves. It's a funny, sensual and heartbreaking story about a woman struggling to choose between two different types of love.

OPPORTUNITIES & EVENTS- INTERNATIONAL||
|INTERNATIONAL: SEEKING ART AND BIOLOGY/BIOSCIENCES
For many 21st century artists, the Internet's rich supply of public domain images of living organisms (animals, including humans and insects; plants, and even bacteria) has dramatically affected the degree to which biology inspires art. For this exhibition, Vital Signs, Art & Science Collaborations Inc. seek original art inspired by our biological world with a special interest in what lies beneath its surface, and/or reflects upon scientific research questions, processes, ethics, and the stunning discoveries being made today.
|INTERNATIONAL: OPEN CALL FOR NET ART PROJECTS
Turbulence commissions and presents up to twenty net art projects annually. The goal of these commissions is to support work that creatively explores the Internet as a site of production and transmission. This includes work by individual artists and collaboratives; work that uses the net as a repository and work that explores its possibilities as a conduit. Or both. All artists are encouraged to consider how their project advances creative use of the network.
Deadline for international artists: 30 June 2012
