The Democracy Scrabble Project
international video art project

INTRODUCTION:
Democracy is a very abstract term to which we got maybe too much accustomed, democracy a political system that – in the best case- helps people to pursuit happiness as the US
constitution takes it.
Democracy and freedom are among the highest goods we have in the Western world and it seems to us that it is time to think about what we think, democracy stands for or at least about
the cloud of meaning that comes with the word “democracy”.
What we did in order to create this project is feeding a scrabble finder with the word “democracy” and taking the output of that machine as our first starting point.
Democracy means e.g. that a majority rules. So what is more obvious that looking for the most used words that start with “d”? We searched the web and compiled a second list with
these words. (Both lists you will find at the bottom of this text)

THE PROCEDURE:

Each participating artist must choose ONE WORD form the DEMOCRACY SCRABBLE LIST and ONE WORD from the MOST-USED-D-WORD LIST.
The two words chosen are the issue for the films the artist is asked to produce: the FIRST FILM should be an interpretation of ONE WORD from the DEMOCRACY SCRABBLE
LIST and the SECOND FILM´s issue should be ONE WORD from the MOST-USED-DWORD LIST.

Words with this sign * are already chosen by another artist and are not still available. The artist is asked to communicate his/her choice to the curators asap/before he/she starts working
on his/her films. Each film should not exceed 4minutes of length and 300MB of size. The preferred codecs are this: H.264, 1920×1080, 25ips, 10.000 – 20.000 kbps

The films should be sent to the curators via a file sharing service like wetransfer and to this email address: info@jsnebe.de.

After receiving all films the curators are going to compilate them to a “democracy scrabble” list- film and to a “most used d-words” list film, which will finally presented to the public in a
screening venue.
