Horizon 2.0

 Any depiction of a landscape is only a representation of a slice in time and place; there is no reality to it. So, it stands to reason that a landscape created in the digital realm is just as real as an unaltered photograph of the countryside. You are invited to bend reality, invent new terrain, bring your best vista, create Horizon 2.0.

Curated by Karen Hochman Brown, Los Angeles Artist and Curator

Shoebox Arts invites you to submit work for this national open call online exhibition at Shoebox Projects, our alternative art space that supports artists through curator opportunities, residencies, representation and exhibitions. This online exhibition runs November 20 to December 17, 2021. 

All artwork needs to use digital processes to create landscapes that have veered from reality through the artist’s skill and imagination.  2D artworks may include screen grabs from moving imagery but will be juried as a static image. If you want the entire moving piece to be viewed, it must be submitted as a video. Work that requires specialized equipment to view will not be considered. 

Methods include, but are not limited to:

Manipulated Photography

Photo Painting

Digital Painting

Digital Collage

Vector Drawing

Dynamic Painting

Generative Artwork

Fractal/Algorithmic Artwork

Integrated Digital Art

Karen Hochman Brown is a Los Angeles-based digital artist who uses her own photography as a base for manipulation in 2-D formats and animations. Her explorations in this field have led to projects involving prints on fabric married to laser-cut wood elements as well as purely digital forays based in line, shape and movement.  Hochman Brown studied art at Pitzer College, California College of Art and Art Center College of Design, but self-developed her processes through experimentation, relying heavily on skills learned as a graphic designer.
