Calling all multidisciplinary artists: 5 SBD on the line! Submit your genre bending art before this post expires!

I love art that mixes genres, breaks expectations, and tries to contribute something new to art forms that have been around for centuries! Innovation is essential. (FYI: all images from Unsplash!)


I often find myself wondering questions like...

What happens when a poet adds video and animation to their work?

What happens when a photographer and a dancer collaborate?

What happens when a rapper meets a puppeteer?

What happens when a sculptor becomes a choreographer?


Multidisciplinary art shows up in a lot of different ways -- so rather than making a single post about it, I decided to RUN A CONTEST FOR ARTISTS OF ALL STRIPES to share work that blends two or more artistic genres!


(1) Create a post sharing a piece of your own work (or a collaboration you played a key role in) that mixes 2 or more artistic genres! This might mean sharing a video, an image, writing, a sound clip, or something else (who knows!).
(2) Write at least 100 words describing the work and the artistic techniques at play
(3) Drop the link to your post here in the comments. This is the only way I will accept submissions! Deadline is next Saturday, when this post expires!
(2) Extra credit: I’m always very interested in seeing documentation of your artistic process, and will award “extra credit” accordingly!


The top artists post will receive 3 SBD and 2 runner ups will each receive 1 SBD. I will comment and upvote each submission to let you know I saw it!

Good luck my artist friends, may your great work continue! <3

ooh that sounds like something that I love doing ! I'm Experimenting making Cinemagraphs-3D-Gifs-Quotes... lol for the lack of a better title.
Here's one:

Omg, that’s so rad! Please submit something. :) Note the rules up above on writing up at least 100 words to go with it, but YES to more of this!

Oh Lord! I used to animate and produce electronic music years ago and make animations to go with the music. The files are on an old computer with a corrupted hard drive! This contest is officially inspiring me to burn a data recovery bootdisk and see what I can salvage.

PLEASE DO. That would be so rad.

You can totally submit something you’ve used in the past! Awesome, looking forward!

Great contest @lilyraabe! I will try to participate, if time permits. LOL.

Amazing, thank you so much for the interest and support!

This is really amazing contest, great initiative and I can't wait to se how this turns out 😉

My pleasure my friend 😉 Happy Monday!

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #31. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

Wahoo! Awesome, thank you! :) I really appreciate the support.

My pleasure. Just want to get you more entrants for a successful contest :)

Awesome, thank you so much for dropping this here. Will comment and respond on the post properly on Saturday as I write up the results!

Hi Lily. Thanks for the link.

I'm submitting my piece which combines sculpture with creative faction.

The sculpture story And then I got a smack is my precarious first steps into the world of sculpture and comes full-circle to the day of stone carving as an adult.

For my first attempt, I found an abandoned and very dirty concrete block. Then I raided my dad's toolbox and methodically went through all his chisels, screwdrivers and awls until all were rendered useless.

At the stone-carving course, I selected a large piece of limestone and traced a beautiful Celtic knot (contorted skinny cats) onto the flattish surface. I then proceeded to butcher the stone with a range of chisels and a hammer, the traditional tools used in stone carving.

The end result was not quite in line with my ambitions, but that's the story of my life.

Here's my submission: And then I got a smack.

Thanks for reading.

Best wishes

Awesome, thank you so much for submitting! I’m real busy the next day, but I’ll check out everyone’s posts on Saturday when I write up the results! :)

Awesome! Thank you so much for entering! I’m super busy today but will be dropping by and checking out all the posts on Saturday when I do the final contest!

Well, here's a link to the motion comic of chapter 1 of the horror comedy graphic novel I wrote and lettered: Lesbian Zombies from Outer Space.

Not only does this take a static medium like comics and try to make it multi-media with music, SFX, voice actors, and panel movement, but the story itself starts with a movie within the comic. :)

Apart from the writing, I also edited the video on Final Cut. That meant cropping all of the panels and laying them out on the timeline. Then doing the sound design and grabbing appropriate music. I hired voice actors (and I did one part myself).

It's inspired by 80s R-rated B-movies, so be prepared.

Awesome, thanks for entering this! I’m super busy today, but I’ll be dropping back to everyone’s posts tomorrow and Saturday as I write up the competition!

Aah! I only just saw this competition, hopefully you hold some more in future. I'll throw this in anyway last minute. :) So cool to see this community grow.

Awesome! On my end it made the deadline so I’ll review with other entries today! :)
