“In My Computer” is an eclectic and ongoing series of PDFs/Print on demand “essays and pamphlets, tutorials, study notes and conference proceedings” published by the Link Art Center’s Link Editions imprint. In My Computer #12, is resulting from a collaboration between the Link Art Center and Abandon Normal Devices to commission a project that will be made public as an online project as a publication. Their invitation:
One’s computer is a repository of valuable things that, for some reason, never went public: projects, drafts, short notes, private emails, unreleased interviews, unpublished texts, tales, poems, quotes, image or spam email collections, whatever. If you think this content may be relevant or interesting also for a wider audience; if you think it may work well in book form, circulated digitally or printed on paper; the book series “In My Computer” may be the right jar for your jam.
- You can apply by sending to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org a short concept / description of your book proposal, together with a short bio and a sample of what you want to do. Language of the application: English.
- The deadline for the submission is December 31, 2015. After the deadline, the jury (Domenico Quaranta / Link Art Center; Fabio Paris / Link Art Center; Gabrielle Jenks / AND; Ruth McCollough / AND) will meet and select the proposal that will be commissioned in 2016. The winner will be announced end of January 2016. The project will be released in two steps (online project + publication) before August 2016.
The organizers will support the production of the selected proposal with 900 € towards fees and production costs. Deadline: December 31, 2015
