Accepting submissions for the Fall 2004 edition of its biannual DVD publication

With the publication of Aspect Magazine, cutting-edge experimental artists finally have a magazine that embraces their mediums. Utilizing a multi-media format to showcase these works of new media art, Aspect creates a museum experience in the home or classroom. Aspect's third volume will feature artists working with text and language in their art.

The staff of Aspect is asking curators, art critics, and members of the contemporary art community to help assemble and comment on works for the next issue by submitting a work of art on which they wish to provide audio commentary. Due to the format of the publication, the criteria for selection will include both the qualifications of the commentator and the quality of the video submitted. Audio recordings of the commentary will be assembled after the submissions have been selected.

Submissions should include:
:: Resume of the commentator
:: brief notes outlining the contents of the proposed commentary
:: video documentation of a work or small group of works by a single artist
:: resume of the artist
:: contact information for the commentator

Submitters will be contacted via email no later than 30 September 2004. Once submissions are accepted the following will be required in digital format:
