    Question the event, from the natural catastrophe, suffered in the Cordón de las Sierras Chicas, and in any other place in the world, where this type of circumstance has been suffered.

    Obviously, it will not be an intervention for contemplation.

    Articulating diverse artistic supports: photography, video, texts, audio, object, engraving, painting, sculpture, textiles, and installations.

    Through the opening of public calls and individual production.

    A project carried out by many, where I become a bridge, to be able to heal, from the most powerful weapon we have, which is to create.

    Fingerprints identify us, distinguish us, reveal us while describing our trail, our path, our wanderings... It seems vital and necessary to pass through this world leaving a positive residue, an essence of our own, an emotional perfume, a particular way of being. Go through this world LEAVING A MARK. Fingerprints, handprints, footprints, heart prints, soul prints... The poet Antonio Machado speaks to us about the unmarked footprints and paths, about the open and shared footprints of our lives, in his remarkable poem: “Walker, they are your footprints / the path and nothing else; / walker, there is no path, the path is made by walking". Let's follow in his footsteps, from ours.

    do consider what [e]mailart is and could be. consider what's the difference between merely sending a simple attachment or image as an email body or otherwise sending a real piece of art that uses all the capacity of what embodies the digital world and the ancient email technology and protocols.

    can a mere attachment be considered a work of art? or should we explore something that resides in the body of the email and is changeable and unique and unable to subsist in any other medium than that?

    alternatively, you may also submit some words, your point of view on the matter, or even an essay regarding the "digital world vs mailart vs [e]mailart vs art".

    any questions regarding the open call should not be sent to us by email as they won't be replied to.

    The artists have to represent a landscape of their city, country, or any place of the world such as they imagine it will be in 2057. It can be something dystopic, fantastic, a wonderful peaceful landscape full of colors, or simply the same as seen today. It could be prophetic or not.
