In 2011, unsolicited submissions to dandelion are no longer accepted. Only submissions that respond to calls will be read. There is no current call for submissions.

Our previous call for submission was:

dandelion is BUILDING | performance/MACHINE

Editor: Kathleen Brown
Assistant Editor: Sandy Pool

performance/MACHINE is inspired by contemporary avant garde poetic practices, pataphysics, physics physics, devised theatre, and the work of artists who are engaged in collaborative performance practices with computers and machines. Dandelion seeks submissions of work from artists who are experimenting with our relationship to technology and computers in ACTIVE ways – through kinetic, digital, interdisciplinary, interactive, poetic practices.

The MACHINE invites you to consider how writing, and the genres of writing are translated and re-mediated by the internet and new technologies in the post-print movement. Artists are producing a wealth of online texts, and bodies of work where writing is performed without paper or print. How can science and writing collaborate to redefine genre? What writings are our machines producing and how can we read, and collaborate with them? What does multimedia look like when you combine the materiality of text with the materials of hardware and code? What new codes are we writing to perform collaborations with our machines?

Curious about the genus of work we’re seeking? ‘Read’ a small sampling of our artistic sources of inspiration here:

Antonin Artaud
Alva Noto
Aya Natalia Karpinska
Blast Theory
Kurtis Lesick
J.R. Carpenter
Mark Z. Danielewski
Brion Gysin
Thierry Gauthier
