CALL FOR STUDENT WORK
On the evening of October 23, ACADI@NY will provide a venue as a student forum exploring and communicating new student-driven innovation through processing and digital architecture research. The Great Hall of Cooper Union will again provide an academic venue where historically, contemporary questions have been raised, debated, and challenged. ACADI@NY will select 20 student submissions and invite those students, each in succession to another, to present a 4-minute-interval narrated synopsis of imagery and thought process towards innovative and avant garde digital strategies where software is challenged.
Students are encouraged to present ideas, processes, and techniques of transferring of information among different software, interfaces different applications and abstract processes discussing their conceptual implications within a student project or work-study.
Students are encouraged to present abstract architectural explorations in parametric modeling, surface geometry, and mathematical equations producing formal vocabulary. There is no interest in renderings, but rather the relational capacity of structural compositions that challenge spatial organization.
WHEN: Saturday October 23rd of 2010, 9:30pm – 11:30pm
WHERE: The ACADI@NY Event will take place at the Great Hall at Cooper Union directly after the ACADIA 2010 Conference opening of the peer review exhibition of work.

The 20×20 format is a simple presentation format whereby 20 selected students will show 20 images, each for 10 seconds through a single powerpoint presentation (each student will be given a total of 4 minutes each for presentation). The images are timed and cycle through automatically while the presenter speaks to his/her selection of images.
WHO: ACADI@NY will invite and select university students of graduate and undergraduate levels to submit and show experimental work developed in advanced computer seminars, and personal investigations/study universities around the world. Students will be asked to present their work which supports the ACADIA 2010 theme of life in:formation on variation in the 20×20 format.
SUBMISSION: Students are invited to submit 20 images (maximum) which describe current work/study/thinking towards the general ACADIA 2010 Conference theme Life In:formation. Submission requirements emphasize strong and informative visual material with succinct analytical text which speaks to each slide and its content, and an overall presentation synopsis. Each applicant must complete the ACADIANY Event Form and submit along with submission requirements. While we are asking for images, after the selection process is made students will be able to submit short animations within the time frame given. Animations will be no longer than 2-3 minutes.
