Reflections Augmenting Monuments and Memorials

Dates or Deadline: 
8 January 2021 to 19 January 2021
Organized by: 
ZERO1

Inspired by the work of artist Cheyenne Concepcion’s fictional municipal agency, New Monuments Taskforce (newmonumentstaskforce.org), the lab will investigate and contribute to contemporary public discourse
around past, present, and future monuments through the use of augmented reality (AR).

The lab consists of creative workshops, peer-to-peer skill-sharing, discussions, and project development. It will culminate in the presentation of collaborative AR activations and responses to public monuments in San Francisco. We are looking for 8 Bay Area-based emerging artists and/or activists to participate in the lab. BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ folks are encouraged to apply.

Proposed project dates are as follows:
February 17 - March 3 Workshop period
March 3 - 17 Project development
March 17 - 24  Installation & presentation prep
March 24 - 31 Exhibition period


The overall time commitment for the lab is approximately 60 hours. Workshops will be held on evenings and weekends, with exact times and dates to be confirmed in January 2021. Project development and installation sessions will be scheduled in coordination with participants. Participants who complete the lab will receive a $500 stipend.

Participation in Reflections is by invitation only. If you have been nominated and are interested in participating, please fill out the application form by January 19, 2021.
