Vision + Light: Processing Perception 

Call for Work

An Exhibition of Art & Science

Presented by Science at Cal & The Department of Art Practice

Science at Cal invites participation in our almost-annual artistic and scientific exhibit and event entitled Vision + Light: Processing Perception. We are excited to announce that the 2019 exhibit will be on display in the Worth Ryder Art Gallery in Krober Hall from February 20 until March 19. Exhibiting in the gallery allows us new ways to display aesthetic images across a range of visual media, which directly emerged from, or were inspired by, scientific research at UC Berkeley. This exhibit will be the sixth iteration of an event previously presented as “Art in Science: The intersection of image and research.” All Science at Cal events are free and open to the public.

Our theme for this year’s exhibit is Processing Perception: exploring how artists and scientists create new ways of seeing, how imagery can convey information and thought, and how the process of making images influences the artist and scientist. We envision exhibiting scientific imagery which might literally involve light or vision produced by microscopes, telescopes or other sensors, Virtual or Augmented Reality projects, and works created by artists in residence in scientific labs or in partnership with scientists.

● Submission Deadline (Extended): January 25, 2019

● (details about delivery tbd)

● Artwork will be on exhibit in the Worth-Ryder Gallery from February 20 until March 14

Eligibility: Artwork, imagery, infographics, multimedia projects produced in whole or part by UC Berkeley researchers, staff, faculty, students, alumni and visiting artists.

Please fill in an Entry Form for each individual work. For video or other non-traditional projects please contact us directly about image uploading.

Images of submissions should be submitted in JPEG format in as high resolution as possible up to 300 dpi, 4″ x 6″ image size, approximately. Up to 3 works may be submitted by each individual.

We are open to featuring other types of creative projects, so if you have an idea for a presentation or hands-on demonstration that might fit with this theme, please contact Katie Bertsche, coordinator for Science at Cal, or Farley Gwazda, Director of the Worth-Ryder Gallery. We can also help with questions about printing and framing. Katie Bertsche: kbertsche@berkeley.edu Farley Gwazda: gwazda@berkeley.edu
