falls the shadow – the wrong biennial
1 November 2019 to 1 March 2020
As part of The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale and falls the shadow we are hosting a ‘Wrong Router’ – a device designed and engineered to display digital art to everyone nearby with a smartphone or tablet, via ︎WiFi. The router will live at Eastside Projects from 1 November 2019 to 1 March 2020 and function as a growing library of experimental digital representations of space inspired by cinema and other audio/visual cultural formats.
The router will be populated though an Open Call, managed by falls the shadow, which runs until 1 February 2020.
The router functions as a growing library of experimental digital representations of space inspired by Cinema and other audio/visual cultural formats. With this in mind falls the shadow are calling for submissions of 3d models, 3d scans, 360 videos and images, photogrammetry models, sound works and other digital objects that engage with this idea in different ways.
The purpose of the library is to provide a platform for visitors to interact with content that demonstrates a variety of ways in which machines interpret space, and how artists and practitioners repurpose related technologies existent in smartphones and other devices.
The only limitation for works submitted is that they are able to be displayed on a webpage by contemporary desktop and mobile browsers. If the work is too complex falls the shadow will work on creating a simplified version for this context where possible.
Submissions are now open and will close on the 1st of February 2020, a month before The Wrong Biennale ends. The first iteration of the router went live on the 1st of November 2019 and is being updated with new submissions on the 1st of each month.

falls the shadow is a project by EOP members Oscar Cass-Darweish and Sean O’Keeffe. It draws on alternative narratives in media and popular culture to develop work that evokes symbolic, imaginary and real, elemental registers that help frame notions of technological futures.
