The Photographers’ Gallery is looking to publish image-text short stories on Alternative Networks created using human-machine collaboration. The development of machine learning has provided a new field of collaborative human-machine projects capable of creating fictional ‘synthetic’ images and automated texts. Submissions might address ideas such as:
- What is a standard network and what is an alternative network?
- What does an alternative look like and how good, useful, harmful, useless, interesting, boring or creative can it be?
- Are alternative networks needed now, were they needed in the past, will they be needed in the future or in any other parallel reality?
- How differently could images circulate through a network?
The Photographers’ Gallery will select and publish up to 15 Flash Fictions on Unthinking Photography, paying £150 to each of the selected submissions.
Deadline 13 February 2021
