Humanizing the Digital

The 3rd annual North Texas Digital Fabrication Symposium (NTDFS) highlights the creative potential for digital fabrication tools and techniques to reconnect us to our humanity. Contrary to society’s worst fear of the dystopian impact of technology, innovative and creative uses of digital fabrication open up possibilities for reconsidering the way humans learn, make and connect through the creative arts. The NTDFS is intended to be a forum for considering the hybrid, interdisciplinary and creative futures that lead us back to the complex imperfection of our humanity.

Call for Proposals

The NTDFS seeks interdisciplinary proposals that connect and expand an art and design perspective into other areas of research and practice. As an extension of our mission to highlight the relationship between technology and humanity, we emphasize a spectrum of digital makers representing diverse perspectives including gender, race and ethnic identity. Particularly in a time when the tech world is under serious scrutiny for a lack of commitment to diversity and access, we hope to represent perspectives that the general public less frequently associates with these new technologies.

TEXAS PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS:

ENTER ORIGINAL ARTWORK INTO A YEAR ON THE PLAZA ART COMPETITION BY AUG. 25

Winning work displayed on art wall in Dallas Arts District for one year, no entry fees 

DALLAS – Professional artists across Texas are invited to enter A Year on the Plaza Art Competition by Thursday, Aug. 25 at 3:00 p.m. for an exceptional exhibition opportunity for the winning artist.

Presented by The Catholic Foundation, the unique competition is accepting original work, searching for a piece of art to adorn a 28-foot-long by 9-foot-wide public art wall in the Dallas Arts District for one year. Submissions must measure 28 inches by 9 and 2/3 inches, and the winning work will be digitally enlarged to cover the wall. The winning artist receives a $2,500 stipend and honorable mentions receive $250 each.

“A Year on the Plaza Art Competition presents a unique opportunity for talented individuals in Texas to express themselves artistically and showcase their work in the Dallas Arts District,” said J. Matthew Kramer, president and CEO of The Catholic Foundation.

Submissions must be appropriate for the location of the Plaza on the Cathedral grounds but do not require a religious theme. There are no entry fees. The Request for Proposal is available at catholicfoundation.com.

Once the winning piece is selected by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community, it will be unveiled during a public dedication ceremony in October 2016.

“Words can’t describe how exciting this is. If you are thinking about entering, go for it! What do you have to lose? As long as you enjoy art, then it’s worth it,” said 2015 winning artist Stuart Hausmann.
