Feb 2008 – Call For Entries Artists of All Mediums: Circulation

The strength and value in art is located not solely in its visuality, but also in its ability to circulate as an object, or at the most basic level- its grounds in a circulating idea. Within a tiny droplet of blood, there are some 5 million red blood cells. It takes about 20 seconds for each of these red blood cells to circle the whole body. These red blood cells will each make approximately 250,000 round trips of the body before being replaced by another red blood cell. USA Today has a daily circulation of 2,528,437. In one year, that amounts to 922,879,505 reads. By the end of the Civil War, between one-third and one-half of all U.S. paper currency in circulation was counterfeit. The ice age cycles were influenced by changes in ocean circulation arising from changes in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Booksmart Studio is seeking submission of artist works that confront, explore, exploit, challenge, and investigate the modes, methods, and effects of circulation. Keeping in line with the diverse modes of circulation and dissemination, the exhibition is open to all mediums. The deadline for entry is March 28, 2008. Visit http://www.booksmartstudio.com for details and entry form. For more information please contact gallery@booksmartstudio.com
