Can you help us distribute our 'Call for Cookbook Submissions'?

Hello fellow #additivists.

Our 'Call for Submissions' has been up for a couple of months now. We are looking to have it land in more email inboxes, and we'd love your help.

We want The 3D Additivist Cookbook call to travel as widely as possible, particularly outside English speaking art/media circles (which we have closest connections to). Academic departments dealing with material design, engineering, bio-tech, are especially exciting for us, but the most important thing is that all kinds of people are inspired to submit something - whatever their background, skills, interests etc.

Can you help us out by sending it around your email associates? Academics, artists, designers you think might be interested? Email listserves at your university or institution? We'd be forever in your debt.

Below is an email friendly 'Call for Submissions'. Here is the extended guideline as a PDF to attach to your emails. Many thanks!

    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS to The 3D Additivist Cookbook

    Design an extraordinary machine which is for killing that which exists, so that which does not exist may be complete.

    Louis Aragon, A Wave of Dreams (1924)

    Earlier this year we released The 3D Additivist Manifesto. A call to push Additivist technologies to their absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird.

    We now invite submissions to an open-source ‘Cookbook’ of radical ideas that cut across the arts, engineering, and sciences. The 3D Additivist Cookbook will contain texts, artworks, templates, recipes, and (im)practical designs for living in this most contradictory of times. Successful submissions to The Cookbook will disrupt common boundaries, exhibiting a conceptual malleability reminiscent of plastic.

    Considered as a tool for art, design and engineering, and gesturing towards a forthcoming era of synthetic chemistry and biological augmentation, 3D fabrication technologies are already a site of common exchange between disciplines and forms of materiality. #Additivism embraces the 3D Printer in homage to Donna Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto (1983). By considering the 3D printer as a technology for remodelling thought into profound, and often nightmarish, new shapes - Additivism aims to expose inbetweens, empower the powerless, and question the presupposed.

    We call for .obj and .stl templates, critical and artistic texts, algorithms, code, and artworks that provoke affirmative action and systemic reorganisation in light of grand narratives such as Posthumanism, Xenofeminism, Accelerationism, and The Anthropocene.

    Published in print and online under a Creative Commons License, The 3D Additivist Cookbook will also lay the groundwork for a series of symposia, exhibitions, and events to be held in 2016.
