Call for Artists, Makers, Performers

mapsWhen Tony Youngblood and I first started dating, he told me dreamily of a idea that he’d been turning over in his mind for a while. It was called Modular Art Pods, or M.A.P.s for short. M.A.P.s would be an open-source art tunnel made by various artists, makers, and performers — anyone, in fact, who could fill up a 4×4 cube in an innovative way. Viewers would experience each pod by crawling through, like in the map to the left. It was a good idea, and even back then, I knew he’d see it through. Many moons later, we’re accepting submissions for the inaugural crawl, which will take place at abrasiveMedia on February 7, during the Arts and Music at Wedgewood Houston event. A crawl at the crawl!

The M.A.P.s website has everything you need to know, including ways to build the structure of a pod and what you can put inside. We’re looking for pods that engage the audience, including those who choose to walk around the pods in the back-lot tour and peer in. We welcome collaborations, too. The application is a cinch to fill out, so DO IT.

Deadline is December 20. Here I am in a pod with a cat!

erica podTony has done tons of cool shit I love to brag about, including founding and directing the biennial Circuit Benders Ball, organizing the Bring Your Own Beamer projector extravaganza in Nashville, and hosting a podcast and blog for experimental music called Theatre Intangible. Follow what he’s up to here.
