Time Machine

In 2012 Serial Space is introducing a brand new platform for the development and presentation of interdisciplinary and experimental art practices: Time Machine. Time Machine will be a week long festival of experimental, time-based art taking place at alternative spaces across Sydney during 16-29 July.

In the lead-up to this festival, Serial Space will offer a number of commissions and development residencies for the creation of new work to be presented in the festival. These works may fit within one of the four streams of Time Machine, or they may stand alone. Serial Space is seeking bold, ambitious, experimental and exciting ideas to support and present as part of Time Machine.

The program will include 4 major streams*:

SOUND & VISION – a series of events and exhibitions presenting new experimental music, sound art, audiovisual performance, video art, installation and interactive work.

PERFORMANCE – a platform for durational and experimental performance art. As part of the performance stream, Serial Space will curate a performance relay showcasing back-to-back, site-specific performance works.

LAB – a space for ongoing experimentation, where art, technology and science come together. Including workshops, presentations, prototyping, knitting circles, tests, and demonstrations.

TALK – a program of debates, performance lectures, critical forums and artist presentations. We welcome formal experimentation of the presentation and dissemination of information.

* Hold on! Serial Space is also interested in work that doesn't fit into the 4 streams. We encourage applications that challenge our bureaucratic programming delineations.
