CONJURED FUTURES

DEADLINE:
May 25, 2018

When: Thursday, June 7 and Friday, June 8

Where: The Santa Fe Railyard, near the Second Street Brewery

In conjunction with the Interplanetary Festival

Conjured Futures is a juried projection featuring photographic images that address or question new technologies, policies, and movements that are shaping the future of humanity. In this curation, we focus on projects that look at solutions or alternate outcomes. So often in western society do we see an emphasis that is put on destruction and problems, without considering what can be done to remediate damage.

In the last 5 – 10 years with the advent of drone photography and popularity of aerial photography, there have been many projects documenting the massive changes to the environment caused by human activity. These projects have helped to generate an understanding of humanity’s present environmental and socio-political crisis, and now it is time to think about the future. How are technologies being used to preserve and restore the environment? What does the future look like? What is being done to take control of our futures?

All photographic projects addressing the themes of Conjured Futures are welcome to apply to the Call for Entry. $20 entry fee, $5 for CENTER Members and New Mexico Residents.

Once you have paid, you will be redirected to the application page where you can upload your images. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Whitney Wernick at whitney@visitcenter.org.

COLOR CUE

DEADLINE:
May 25, 2018

When: Thursday, June 14 and Friday, June 15

Where: The Santa Fe Railyard, near the Second Street Brewery

This projection will happen alongside the Currents New Media Festival

Color Cue: Explorations in Perception is a juried projection featuring photographic images that explore color as a subject, muse, and scientific phenomenon. Utilizing color theory and the effects of color combinations, Color Cue exposes an underlying conceptual framework that brings into question how the environment and culture affect the perception of color. For centuries color was considered an unexplained phenomenon until Isaac Newton discovered color waves in the 1660’s through his experimentations with sunlight and prisms. Through the years, humanity has continued to make discoveries and create theories about how and why color is a part of the visual experience. Photography has played a vital role in advancing the understanding of the visual world – from the invention of color film to the creation of lenses, photography has helped us understand how we see.

In this International call for entry, CENTER encourages photographers who use color in experimental ways, explore the ways in which the notion of color can be expanded, and consider the visual process in their work to apply. $20 entry fee, $5 for CENTER Members and New Mexico Residents.

Once you have paid, you will be redirected to the application page where you can upload your images. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Whitney Wernick at whitney@visitcenter.org.
