Call for Entries: The Golden Record

Deadline for Submission: May 31,  2018 11:59 PM EST

Seeking entries for The Golden Record, an exhibition inspired by the images and sounds of “The Sounds of Earth,” the recording that is now traveling on the Voyager spacecraft far beyond our galaxy, bearing hundreds of sounds, including the Brandenburg Concerto, whales, footsteps, greetings in 55 languages, thunder, crickets, brainwaves, a heartbeat, and “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground”     by Blind Willie Johnson.  Submit works in all media, including sound, video, performance, technology, and science that reflect on the beautiful and daft hopefulness of this compilation going forth for 40,000 years to be sort of near the closest star.

Curated by Brooke Leeton, Rebecca Brantley, Jon Vogt, and Paula Runyon.

A proposal with links to up to three images, videos, or sound files may be submitted for review; in some cases, additional or different work may be requested for review. All works must be submitted as links in this online entry form. For assistance with submission of images as links, see:
