DEADLINE EXTENDED TO THE 15TH MAY!!!!
As you know the IAPS22 Conference will be held in Glasgow, UK, between 24th –29 June this year. As part of the event, Gary Gumpert, Aleya Abdel-Hadi and David Uzzell are organising our 4th Photographic Exhibition. This is now a reminder of the call to all members of IAPS who are attending the conference to submit photographs for this show (up to a maximum of four per participant).
The theme of the photographic exhibition is ‘Constructed Memories’. What memories are triggered by a ‘loosely’ constructed environment? Do the streets, buildings and structures that surround and confront us (in all shapes and sizes) speak about the past or forecast the future? How aware are we and how important are these ‘messages’ from the past that we pass by during our everyday lives? What is the effect of a ‘designed’ place in constructing and structuring our memories? What is the role of memory in place identity and place attachment? When places are destroyed and spaces changed, how do they affect the collective memories of groups and the personal memories of individuals? How can places destroy memories and lead to collective forgetting?
Constructed Memories deals with these triggers of the mind and the need we have for these memories.
Constructed Memories are not only the collected images that describe our personal, social or psychological reactions to an exterior world, but the collective memories held by all of us. Your aim is to capture images that you believe will speak to us, answering the questions above. We also hope that the show will be unexpected, interesting and a lot of fun.
Submission for Selection
Step 1: Submission
The deadline for the submission of entries is now the 15th May, so you still have a couple of weeks to go snapping or to scour your vast portfolios of fascinating images. Submission details: Please note, the submission process is in two stages
Please send to the email addresses below (up to) four photographs of as .jpegs at 300 dpi. Please ensure that the .jpegs are not too large – we will view them on a computer and so they should be no more than about 300k each – preferably less. Please name each image with: YourName_n of image.jpeg and send a word doc file with all captions of your images including: name of Picture, Your name, affiliation, Picture Title.
Aleya, David and Gary will select the Pictures to include in the exhibition and communicate inclusion by the end of May 2012.
Step 3: Exhibition
All accepted photographs will be printed and mounted in Glasgow with the support of the Architecture Department. Therefore you should, at this stage, submit high resolution images.
These images should be printable at an A3 size (420 x 297 mm or 16.5 x 11.7 in). Please name each image with: YourName_name of image.jpeg and send a word doc file with all captions of your images including: name of Picture, Your name, affiliation, Picture Title.
This means that you will not have to transport your mounted photographs to Glasgow as in the past.
Please send any requests of further information and your photographs for initial judging to:
Aleya Abdel-Hadi , David Uzzell & Gary Gumpert
All submitted images will then also be featured on the IAPS website as ‘window’ image on each page, updating our current collection.
