The winning five composers and five video artists will be granted a commission of $100 to collaborate, and create a five to eight minute audio-visual work. The event will take place during Open Spaces, Kansas City’s bi-annual outdoor-indoor contemporary art exhibition. All applicants must consider the material and discursive practices of Object-Oriented Ontology, specifically it’s subsets: Alien phenomenology, Agential Realism, and Posthumanism. Object-Oriented Ontology is a philosophy that maintains objects exist independently of human perception and are not ontologically exhausted by their relations with humans or other objects. Upon consideration of these three philosophical subsets (described below), each composer or visual artist must choose one, on which to focus their work. Miller and Souther will pair composers and visual artists based on their responses to these philosophies and based on their ideal working method.

We present the best in short cinema chosen by and presented to an audience of film and culture sector professionals. The standard submission fee is $4.75 (equivalent to the price of a beer at P’tit Maj). However, we discovered that Iranian filmmakers are unable to participate because of US banking sanctions.
