v1b3 is requesting submissions of short videos that in the broadest terms possible explore the theme of shelter within the context of public space though human interaction, intervention and the mechanisms that influence and control the experience of the city.
Shelter, food and clothing are basic human need. Within urban contexts people experience many stresses on their ability to find shelter be they geographic, financial or based in security. Many of these forces are affected by the perception of monetary value. Shelter also occupies symbolic meanings about home, family and social position. Like much in our material culture, our choice in shelter/s and how we "outfit" them reflects the user/owner's identity. Recently the earthquake destruction in Haiti, the floods in Pakistan and the mortgage crisis in the United States refocus attention on the importance of shelter.
v1b3 Fall 2010 will be presented in conjunction with the International Digital Media Arts Association Conference taking place at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C. November 4-6th. v1b3 Fall10 will have a companion DVD developed for publication and purchase.
