The exhibition Machinista 2004 is currently accepting entries until February 28th 2004.
Machinista is a yearly unmediated open-submission online exhibition. Creative and technological practices including visual and software art, science and design projects, moving image, experimental music and performance are featured in various scales and stages of development ranging from documentation of prototypes and exploratory installations to fully operational systems.
Submissions for the following three themes are welcomed in all media.
- Art from the Machine: gleams of the inhuman
Works created completely or mostly by a machine or an artificial intelligence system.
- Artists Against Machinic Standards
Breaking, destroying, hacking, unexpected (non-utilitarian?) usage of customary programs as an art experiment.
- Full-Screen Robovision
Moving image works (experimental/scientific imaging, audiovisual code, short films, animation and VJ mixes) illustrating “the world as seen by machines.”
In 2003 there were 128 submissions featured in Machinista plus offline events in Moscow and Perm in the Urals.

While looking up some old GTxA posts, I came across this thread on Modes of AI-based Art in which Drew Davidson, a somewhat regular commentator on GTxA, mentioned Machinista 2003.
