A/V Walk at USJ

The Autorino Center for the Arts
West Hartford, Connecticut

The Autorino Center for the Arts invites submissions from artists who break new artistic ground with an experimental and pioneering spirit to create an interactive, site specific AUDIO/VIDEO WALK inspired by Janet Cardiff's work. Using the University of St. Joseph as the backdrop, artists are challenged to create an Augmented Reality experience utilizing a live, direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by sensory input such as, pre-recorded performance, sound, video, graphics and/or GPS data, and thereby interacting with art and the campus.

Proposals should create an immersive and interactive audio/video walk that transforms a tour, of the USJ campus, into an absorbing and immersive experience that engage the listeners using their own smart/wireless devices. Artists are invited to create unique experiences through layers of 3-dimensional sound, narratives (concrete or abstract), visuals and/ or interactive with the permanent elements of the campus. We encourage you to be creative and push the boundaries of emerging technologies that support the mission of the University of St. Joseph.
The Autorino Center for the Arts and Humanities:

To provide transformative experiences which affirm the arts as essential to the human endeavor and to an understanding of human life, and to serve as a cultural resource for University of Saint Joseph and the greater Hartford community.

To create interdisciplinary projects that link curricula with the arts and humanities, to provide a liberal arts context for all fields of study and professional programs, to heighten an awareness of international cultures and the importance of diversity in society, and to serve as a forum for the examination of campus, regional, national, and world issues.
