COLLISIONcollective, a group premised on the sometimes abrupt intersection between art and technology, is currently accepting submissions for the next show, COLLISION XV. The 15th COLLISION show will be held in partnership with the Axiom Center for New and Experimental Media in Jamaica Plain starting February 19, 2010. There is no pre-defined theme; rather, a theme will develop in response to the work accepted for the show, and will be announced after the judging phase. COLLISIONcollective is soliciting work from group members and their associates, but is also extending an open call for work from other artists with a shared vision. For more information, check the group’s submissions page.
