How do we extend our work? Film culture has been stuck in a single product mentality for a long time. Even when the core of a work is a feature film, can't we place other elements on to different platforms to aid in the discovery process?
As common sense and as necessary as this seems, we are hindered by the lack of opportunity to do so. My spirits are always lifted when I learn of a new opportunity. I am delighted to share this email I got with you.
The submission process for The WIndow Project is on-going. We have current openings in 2011 and 2012 for:

The Window Project is a curated new media installation space facing the southern end of Woodruff Park from the windows of the Digital Arts Entertainment Laboratory (DAEL). The infrastructure consists of six high definition projectors synchronized to create a rear-projection screen that stands over six feet high and spans over 80 feet in width and can be seen from any vantage point in Atlanta’s central park and from the main pedestrian path of students of Georgia State University.
We invite the participation of local, national and international emerging and established artists to submit current work reconfigured for six projectors around a curved surface or new work specifically created to take advantage of the multi-projector format. This space and format allows artists to break from the constraints of a single screen on a flat surface with a prescribed viewing point. We do not seek a specific theme for the content, but expect that it should be high visual, technical and conceptual quality and well suited for this unique public space, which is large, but subtle due to the curved glass and location on a downtown building window.
This project is sponsored by the Digital Arts Entertainment Lab. DAEL is a multimillion-dollar entertainment research and production facility located in the heart of downtown Atlanta on the campus of Georgia State University. Through industry and university partnerships, DAEL facilitates the creation and testing of digital media content. DAEL incubates emerging media arts businesses, trains graduate students and engages in user-centered media research.
