The Too Tired Project. A dialogue about mental health and art.

Tara Wray’s photobook, Too Tired for Sunshine (Yoffy Press, July 2018), confronts depression by documenting the beauty, darkness, and absurdity of everyday life, and it’s the inspiration for the Too Tired Project.

If you use photography in a similar way, we hope you will share your work with us. We want to continue a dialogue about mental health and art.

To submit to this ongoing curated series of photographs just tag #tootiredproject and @tootiredproject on Instagram.

We’ll post a few favorites on the site and aim to select the most captivating of those images for a photobook anthology to be published by Yoffy Press (timing TBD).

You may also submit to the Too Tired Project by sending up to 3 images to info@tootiredproject.com.

▪ All images should be sized at 1200px on the longest side, at 72dpi, sRGB, jpeg format.
▪ Label the files with your name and numeration. (Example: firstname_lastname_1.jpg).

Call for Submissions: Journal for Artistic Research (JAR). Deadline: Sept. 6, 2018.

JAR invites submissions from all fields and disciplines in which artistic research may be relevant, including areas that are not usually conceived of as artistic. We welcome submissions from practitioners with or without academic affiliations. JAR’s format for publishing artistic research, the exposition, invites authors to combine text, image, film, and audio material on expandable web pages, challenging the dominance of writing in traditional academic research. Submissions in multiple languages are accepted, if accompanied by an English translation, which will act as master version. Multilingual expositions are also welcome as long as translations are provided.
The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is an international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal that disseminates artistic research from all disciplines. JAR invites the ever-increasing number of artistic researchers to develop what for the sciences and humanities are standard academic publication procedures. It serves as a meeting point of diverse practices and methodologies in a field that has become a worldwide movement with many local activities. JAR provides a digital platform where multiple methods, media and articulations may function together to generate insights in artistic research endeavours. It seeks to promote expositions of practice as research. In JAR artistic research is viewed as a developing field where research and art are positioned as mutually influential. Recognising that the field is ever developing and expanding, JAR remains open to continued re-articulations of its publishing criteria.

The JAR Network further facilitates exchange among the artistic research community. This part of the site is an extension of JAR rather than part of the peer reviewed journal. In the Network we publish writing that actively responds to issues in the field, allowing JAR to give focus to developments and make public some of the important discussions that artistic researchers have in their own local contexts.

For submissions information, and advice on whether your research is suitable for JAR, contact the Managing Editor, using the web contact form.

Submission Requirements

JAR works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers. Editor in Chief: Michael Schwab – Peer Review Editor: Julian Klein. Editorial Board: Alex Arteaga, Annette Arlander, Lucia D’Errico, Barnaby Drabble, Mika Elo, Azadeh Fatehrad, Yara Guasque, Julian Klein and Mareli Stolp.

JAR is published by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR), an independent, non-profit association. You can support JAR by becoming an individual or institutional member of SAR. More information can be found here.
