This commission is for an interactive art installation – total budget stated includes your fees and all costs including materials, AV hardware and fabricator fees – to be detailed out together with We the Curious.
All work must present a diverse range of voices on the exhibition floor, with a creative practice inclusive to all potential contributors – considerate to a balance of age, gender identity, BAME, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation.
This exhibit responds to the question, “Can science see your soul?” In discussions and testing ideas with our audiences, we found interest in thinking about what if science COULD see your soul? How would it feel? So this is a commission for an art installation that gives visitors a chance to reflect on the idea of being able to see their soul, whether or not they believe it exists.
- An installation that presents a beautiful abstracted experience of what your soul might look like
- Interactivity of some kind
- Appealing to families and older adults on an intellectual level, and playful for kids
- Robust for continuous use by kids for a permanent exhibition
What do we need for this commission?
An artist or collective used to working on installations for public spaces, to create a concept that delivers an uncanny, thought provoking, playful experience of what it might be like to see your own soul.
There is an opportunity here for an artist to develop a concept in collaboration with fabricators Bruns to test and build it with them. This would involve travel to the Bruns studio and factory in the Netherlands.
Total Budget: £40,000 - to include artist fee and any materials, hardware etc for the exhibit, travel, and fabricator fee
