About this project

FUNDING SUCCESSFUL ! New STRETCH GOAL: $ 2000 ! 

If we meet our new stretch goal, the quality of the catalogue, shirts, and overall exhibition will be greatly increased !!! 

FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SHOW CLICK HERE: HACKPHILLY.COM

HACK is an open call for technology based projects. Inviting participation from the design, art, hacker, and DIY communities in Philadelphia. We are encouraging collaborative works for submission, but this is not a requirement. We are asking for a range of works; from 2D to 3D works, applications, wearables, installation, objects, and performances.

The emergence of new technology has unveiled a community of people who may or may not consider themselves artists or designers. Hackers are liberating these technologies from the intentions of their original creators, thus rendering new raw materials resulting in unintended consequences. Ultimately, traditional borders do not bind these interstitial communities; by re-appropriating, merging, extending, and breaking down barriers through disruption, these hackers are creating something new and innovative. 

HACK will take place as part of Philly Tech Week on April 27 and 28, 2012. Both nights will have the gallery show as well as live performances.

Dates:

April 27, 5-8 pm ++ April 28, 5-8 pm


Location: 

1519 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102

About the catalogue:

The catalogue of HACK will be a book of work from the exhibition. The catalogue will be in full color and have artist biographies and information about each piece. 

We are hoping to have a larger than expected response to this project, so if we make $ 2000 + from the Kickstarter project, we will be able to put the catalogue of the show into a more refined and high quality printing process. 

About the funding:

HACK is a large project with many moving parts. We would like enough funding for web and printed promo materials as well as for the catalogue of the show. There are many costs associated with HACK.

IMPORTANT For Sponsors:
