BEYOND MEDIA 05. SCRIPT. The call for entries is online

We are happy to announce the call for entries for the next edition of
BEYOND MEDIA, international  festival of architecture
and media.

The festival, devoted to the most advanced visualizations in
architecture and to the debate on the relationships between the project
and the media of communication, will take place in Florence, Italy,
December 1-11, 2005. Promoted by the TAeD Department of the University
of Florence, organized by iMage, and curated by Marco
Brizzi, BEYOND MEDIA has been constantly observing, since 1997, the
development of the systems of communication in the field of architecture
by evaluating their impact on contemporary architectural production and
by promoting quality and research in the development of communication
media for design projects.

The theme for the 8th edition of BEYOND MEDIA is SCRIPT.

How can architecture today tell itself? Which narrative forms are linked
to the idea of the project, of its external expressions, of its
publicity? How does design structure its languages and how does it
express the culture of our times by means of a contemporary way of
writing? Which paths do emerging creatives follow in order to approach
the new modes of expression which are made possible by the digital tools
and by the new media? SCRIPT will offer an opportunity for thinking
about a wide range of topics that are at the center of the design
culture today.

As it happened during the past editions of the festival, BEYOND MEDIA
will once again present the most interesting works of communication in
architecture. Each author of videos or works of communication in the
field of architecture can participate in the 2005 edition of the
festival. We expect submitted works to be recent productions by
students, architects, artists, specialized agencies. Participation is
free of charge. It is possible to submit videos, animations or
multimedia works; each author can submit more than one piece of work.

We invite you to visit the official website of BEYOND MEDIA website, where you will find the call for entries and
the forms for participation. Deadline for submissions is September 30th,

iMage is in charge of the production and realization of the event.
