Call for Submissions: Think Fast Exhibit

think fast_logo

CALLING: artists, makers, visual thinkers, students and practitioners of design, urbanism, architecture, landscape, planning and other allied disciplines. Images and techniques that portray the process of revealing design in all its forms are invited for a peer-reviewed exhibition and publication. Think Fast explores the role of ambiguity and deconstruction in design imagination, intent and contemporary representation. The interdisciplinary collection of work selected for exhibition will travel to at least three academic venues in Indiana, Kansas and New York City.

The exhibition and subsequent publication will collect unfinished, deconstructed or otherwise ambiguous design images and products to bridge creative disciplines, and to reveal meaning in the often-accidental discoveries that grow out of fast, gestural, conceptual visual thinking. The rough, imperfect sketch or study model does not simply hint at an idea, it inspires the maker and viewer alike to take imagined artistic liberties—connecting a scarcely deliberate concatenation of dots—and filling in the voids with their own creative visions.

Please send high quality pdf files along with a 50-500-word statement through http://www.wetransfer.com/ or other service to sbussiere@bsu.edu by February 1st 2015.

Entries may include between 1-5 digital images. Submit the images and statement in your entry and include the following in the message:

• Your name(s) as you would like it presented
• The title of your work(s)
• Media
• Measurements/dimensions for plotting
• Contact information, email, phone & address
• Format saved files: Name_Title

THINK FAST / is Co-Curated by:

Simon M. Bussiere, Ball State University, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design
Quilian Riano, DSGN AGNC & Parsons The New School of Design
Dustin Headley, Kansas State University, Interior Architecture and Product Design
