Media Arts Competition- H2020 European Commission Project

Berlin Adaptation event in the Summer of 2017 as a part of the European Commission Horizon 2020 AGILE Research & Innovation Project.

Adaptation is a competition and an event aimed at envisioning the interstices of art and technology, utilizing the Internet of Things as means to sense and visualize both the physical and the virtual world. 

The event is scheduled to take place in Berlin, Germany during the summer of 2017. The competition is open for artists and technologists to work together and co-create. Thinking critically about the technology, as well as multimedia collaborations which might include sound, visual arts or light, are all encouraged.

Artists are invited to submit your proposal for one of the four different categories of the competition:

- Quantified Self
- Interactive Spaces
- Environment & Data
- Smart Cities

Applications close on the 30th November 2016 and four artists/projects will be selected, one per category. The selection will be made by a panel of artists, developers and hardware providers, who will assess both the artistic merit of the proposed artworks, as well as the technical viability within the given time frame. 

The winners will have 5 months to work on their proposals, from January to May 2017. They will have the support of hardware device providers: BioAssist for the QuantifiedSelf category, Atos for Smart Spaces, and Libelium for Smart Cities. The artists will also be paired with software developers from the Eclipse community for support. Finally, they will meet with Jolocom, event organizer, on a monthly basis for review and continuity.

Adaptation is part of AGILE, a Horizon 2020 European Commission Research & Innovation project aiming to build a modular hardware and software gateway for managing the Internet of Things.
