Sensate Journal For Experiments In Critical Media Practice

Sensate Journal For Experiments In Critical Media Practice :: Call For Submissions - Deadline: September 30, 2012.

Sensate is a new online interdisciplinary journal publishing works of critical media practice. It is currently accepting submissions from academics, scientists and artists interested in working on collaborative projects which cross the boundaries between research and making.

Building on the groundswell of pioneering activities in the digital humanities, scholarly publishing, and innovative media practice, we believe in creating a space for redefining the terms in which such collaborations can be presented, articulating modes of working that are derived from artistic practice with revised standards for peer-reviewed academic production. It is with this goal in mind that Sensate aims at publishing innovative projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences, providing a forum for scholarly and artistic experiments not conducive to the printed page.

Call for Submissions and Reviews

Exploring new ways to archive, curate, and organize academic multimedia scholarship, Sensate invites submissions of scholarship and art not conducive to the printed page. We encourage submissions that creatively bridge research and media-based work, and aim beyond an illustrative relation between text and image towards both solid and innovative modes of scholarship and artistic practice.

The integration of form and content is crucial to our mission and thus rather than a list of guiding questions (which seek answers) we would like to offer a list of possible approaches that demonstrate efforts to unite form and content and to provoke inquiry through creative combinations of exposition and expression.

We are currently seeking work in any of the following categories/disciplines: artistic research, visual arts and artistic practice, history of technology and the media arts, visual anthropology and sensory ethnography, digital humanities, sound studies, media archeology, digital collections of audio and/or visual materials, digital cartography, performance and its documentation, imaging scientific research, and creative data visualization. We also welcome submissions that extend beyond these possibilities.

Sensate pieces may rework or expand traditional scholarship in a media rich context, or provide a space to remediate artistic projects in a new form. See our collection of published works at

We are also seeking reviews for films, events, books, exhibitions, and performances. Please visit our blog,, for updates on calls for specific reviews.

Submissions are due by September 30th.
Please use the Chicago Manual of Style for all citations.

Please submit articles via our article submissions form at, and reviews via our review submissions form at

    I am a multidiciplinary artist and entrepreneur working in painting, photography, video installation, sculpture and performance.
    Since 1999 I developed the Anamorphic Video/Photo Technique. In recent years I focused on the anamorphoic aproach of photography, video, light membranes, painting, and installations in which society and iconic architectural settings are transformed and distorted thus reflecting on the hidden layers of perception.

    My propsals for the theme “Journal For Experiments In Critical Media Practice’ are two anamorphic videos-links below.

    Freedom Fighters

    In the video series Freedom Fighters I’m dealing with the paradox of ‘fighting for freedom’ that goes along with the doomsday mood of the “paranoid sinners” and the claim of the NATO as an Global Peacemaker. The U.S.A. as the Marshall and the Member States, in this case, Germany, as an Deputy Sherif. The predetermined march direction provides confusion among the marchers until they are devoured by the power apparatus in which they disappear into a wormhole from the “Kanzleramt” the Federal Chancellery. I morph solid things into fluid forms with a mlrror/lens installation. No computer manipulation.

    In the video Memento I am exploring the transience of human existence, “The end of a life time” and in particular the violent death by murder. The Jewish Memorial in Berlin by the architect Peter Eisenman drew me in it’s spell in an alarming way. The structure is not loaded with the overblown pathos of traditional memorial architecture, and thus the experience is even more terrifying and cryptic. The sound track is inspired by the lasting impression, which accompanied me during walk through the memorial’s aisles, the pounding sound of my heart.
