make a difference. We want all artists to unite and use their creative
powers and gain an overwhelming support for Barack Obama. You'll gather --

4. Call for writers and Interns: Proximity magazine

This is a last call for contributors for our second issue which we are
working on right now. We need your words by July 10, 2008.   If you want to
start simple then give us a holler  and email to ed at proximityagazine.com.

Proximity is accepting applications for internships. The commitment is
unpaid, and lasts 10-15 hours per week for 3-4 months. Ideal candidates are
hard-working, self-starting, meticulous, and interested in culture and
politics. Interns help with administration, work at monthly events, research
on new projects, and more. You will get first-hand experience in exhibition
programming, special events, fundraising and development, and administrative
operations. To apply, contact Rachael at proximitymagazine.com


5. Early warning. Select Media Festival 7 : Infoporn

Announcing the Seventh Annual Select Media Festival: INFOPORN
Deadline for submission: September 1, 2008

Heartbeats. Beverages. Products and byproducts. Things we make, and things
that make us. Seconds, minutes, millennia. From the mundane to the majestic,
it can all be documented, diagnosed, understood, dispersed. Right?

Graphs, charts, and maps record data, keep history, and document our
existence. Sometimes, they provide visual and aesthetic stimuli too. Select
Media 7: INFOPORN will be a visual explosion of these points and paths,
these executions and exercises and maps. We want to put these moments on
display, to measure them out out. We want to understand and appreciate; be
enraged, enlightened, amazed by them. We want to feast.


all media formats

Send your greatest hits or make something  new. Use color, shape, form,
sound. Use marbles or twigs. Use a computer, a camera, a crayon. The data is
the art and you are the simple stenographer. Measure it. Record it. Jot it
down, plot it out, pass it out, and capture it. Let us see it, let us relate
to it, let us celebrate or begin to understand it.

all media formats

Document the thing that has the greatest effect on your existence in
Chicago. Realign existing info, or imagine new ways of navigating the city.
Maps political or personal, realism or utopia, rollerblades or red tape,
online or inline: it's all legit. Draw conclusions if you want, but they are
not necessary. A publication/project will be created and released/exhibited
at the festival.


September 1, 2008

Send PDFs, posters, boxes of dirt, publications, CDs, DVDs, cassette tapes,
crayon boxes, maps in bottles, urls, ftp sites, etc. to:

Select Media Festival 7
960 W 31st Street
Chicago Il 60608
