Calling all artists, designers, techies and ocean experts - join us!
Join us Saturday, October 27, for the Blue Trail Design Jam Competition - an open-call invitation to artists, designers, tech experts, marine experts and others who care about ocean sustainability for a high energy day of concept generation and prototyping for Blue Trail.
Up to five concepts from the competition will be selected for possible commission.
The Design Jam will take place at the waterfront offices ofAdaptive Path in San Francisco.
What is Blue Trail?
A non-profit initiative, Blue Trail is a trail of ten interactive art-design-science-tech installations to be located along the San Francisco waterfront during the final races of the America's Cup (September 2013), each designed to awaken people to the mystery, beauty and fragility of the world’s oceans. Five million visitors and a global audience will be focused on the San Francisco waterfront during this time.
Blue Trail is produced by 7Story in collaboration with UC Santa Cruz’ OpenLab, an art-science center for interdisciplinary problem-solving, and independent curator Laura Cassidy. Blue Trail is a member of the Intersection for the Arts Incubator Program.
