Open Call for Digital Artists

Concept: The Dream

The unconscious, the illogical, the irrational – what is it about dreams and their uncanny nature that drives us towards conjuring fantastical explanations and mystical reports on their meanings? The depths of the internet have become a repository for dreams, hopes, irrational thoughts and vents – but are we asleep or awake? Sleepwalking or stationary? Is this a dream or a nightmare?

Artworks: Any New Media Art format with a surreal touch

Exhibition: [maybe physical for 3-day in London] in VR Mozilla Hubs in March 2022

Deadline to apply: Sunday 30 January at 12:00 (noon) GMT.
