INVITING PROPOSALS FOR PUBLIC ART COMISSION
Sensing Sydney: communicating sustainability through the arts, open data and public space
Artists, curators, cultural organisations and creative teams are invited to submit proposals for a temporary public artwork that engages with data on Sydneyâ€™s progress towards Sustainable Sydney 2030. The work will be presented as part of Art & About Sydney 2013.
Art & About
is an annual festival produced and presented by the City of Sydney
, which celebrates art in unusual places. It will run from Friday 20 September to Sunday 20 October 2013.
The public art commission is part of Sensing Sydney: communicating sustainability through the arts, open data and public space, a City of Sydney and Carbon Arts project, which aims to bring historic and real time data alive in ways that celebrate our collective efforts to address environmental challenges.
We are interested in the different pathways for creative use of data and technology to engage the public in an active dialogue on environmental issues and citizen-engaged action.
Sustainability data in Sydney is available for download at www.carbonarts.org. Additional or alternative sources of data can be requested or proposed by the artist.
Deadline for submissions: 20 May 2013
Download application form from www.carbonarts.org

Entrants will be informed of the winning artist by 5 June, with an official announcement to be made as part of the City Data Slam, taking place during ISEA 2013 at Object Gallery.
