Here is another art call this time from the UK’s Syntropy States. The most common definition for syntropy is that it’s the opposite of entropy. Entropy is typically defined as disorder, randomness, chaos, death, extinction, random mutations, cancer, and closed-up energy. But in principle or practice, it means materialism, naturalism, Darwinism, nihilism, atheism, scientism, physics, and the theory of evolution based upon entropy. It is an actual death or entropy.
The Syntropy States is a small digital arts start-up organization that aims for big-time changes. It is a platform that brings together the digital arts with breathing exercises, relaxation, and meditation. The organization has an aim to put art and music together, to play an important role in people’s health and happiness. Syntropy puts digital artists and musicians together to have a meaningful role in helping stressed-out society and seeks artists and musicians who want to share in order to help social wellbeing by creating accessible art and music that provides a way to relax and revitalize. Specifically, they will commission 14 short audiovisual, videos to be hosted on the forthcoming app “Syntropy”. Artists make a widely acceptable digital health tool. Each visual and audio selection will receive £200, plus promotion + exposure to a large and growing audience and a digital arts residency within the Syntropy app and website. The commission prizes £100 – £200. The £200 will be awarded in the form of £100 for the art and £100 for the music. That means if you create both the art and the music you get £200. But if you choose only art or music the commission is £100 each.
Initially, you are sending just a short sample of work. Syntropy will use samples to identify and select the artists and musicians to create a 4-5 minute video. There are two categories of video – “Relax” and “Breathe”. Relax is a video that employs art and music in ways specifically designed to relax and calm, while breath is a video that employs art and music in ways specifically designed to engage in breath exercise techniques. The breathing therapy includes breathing at a pace which creates a state of coherence or resonance. Each category also has an artistic theme and therefore the theme for Relax is “Syntropy” and the theme for Breathe is “Coherence”. Artists can submit multiple samples to Relax and Breathe whether this is music, visuals or both. The Relax theme Syntropy refers to the order opposite of chaos and opposite of entropy. Syntropy symbolizes movement towards symmetry, the unification of the physical and biological, and evolutionary relationship. The Breathe theme Coherence refers to the specific practice of coherence or resonance breath exercise. The breath cycle is 10 seconds (5 secs in, 5 secs out). Coherence breath-work synchronizes the communication between the heart and the brain, for an optimal physiological state. Coherence just as Syntropy is more about synchronization, as a unified whole, where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
The deadline is the 15th of November 2021 and there is no entry fee
