the Incurable Caravan's Online Car Show



The Incurable Caravan’s Online Car Show is an indefinite online exhibit. All works accepted should expect to be a single element on a larger, scrolling page. The online aspect of the exhibition is deliberate.

The Car Show seeks to intersect traditional, popular, experimental, and outsider styles with an enthusiasm towards all approaches to art-making. We welcome all interpretations of media and automotive transportation.




Works submitted should include, allude to, or represent some elements of a car (doors, windows, wheels, engines, memories, etc.), but how you choose to present these elements is up to you. Not all internal spaces with windows are cars, and not all cars have doors. Your car can be literal, abstract, heartfelt, playful, technical, emotional, or all of the above, to any degree of detail.


Any media capable of existing online is encouraged, especially media that are normally challenging to program or format in other contexts. This includes:


  • literary: poetry, short prose (< 500 words), haiku, interviews, interactive fiction
  • static visual: all traditional visual media: drawing, painting, photography, graphic/product design. For sculpture, 3D photoscans or multiple photos are acceptable.
  • moving visual: short film (< 3m), silent animations (gif/mp4), filmed choreography
  • 3D: any 3D model or scene below 50k polygons
  • audio: short pieces or songs (< 3m, loopable or not), interactive web audio, original sound design haikus (< 10s)
  • multimedia: any combination of the above
  • web: any self-contained webapps, games, data viz, generative art, net art, or CSS/SVG/Canvas animations, size restrictions TBD


Proposals for categories not included in this list and works-in-progress are allowed, as long as evidence of progress can be demonstrated on submission. Older works are also allowed, as long as they relate to a car in some form.

Alive Inside: Remembering the Body as Earth

Alive Inside: Remembering the Body as Earth


Online Exhibition Opening: October 20

Submission Deadline: October 10


Hearth Studio


For this exhibition we are seeking art in a variety of media that conveys the inseparability of the human body and the earth, reimagines the self AS nature/earth, conveys the relationship of self/body/anatomy to animal/earth/landscape, or explores the barriers or forces of destruction/oppression that prohibit self-care/earth-care.


Inherited or imposed stories tell us we are separate from our bodies, each other, and the earth. We receive messaging that values logic over intuition, thoughts over feelings, and mind over body. These stories can become beliefs and these beliefs can become behaviors that lead to isolation, depression and anxiety. But now, more than ever, we have an opportunity for change.  


Turning towards our feeling and sensual selves, our animal selves, and nature, reminds us of our humanness. Discovering home not just in our environment but in our bodies reminds us of our capacities to live in a web of interconnection, finding support in the generative and reciprocal forces of nature. Our inhabited bodies are our first environment and our access point to all that's outside of us. As a species, we are being called to remember this so that we can begin to make new choices that will sustain life on this planet.


Join us in this inquiry and exploration.

Questions to spark inspiration for works:


If you imagined your insides as a landscape what would it look like? If your insides needed a particular landscape for healing what would it be?

What is it like to imagine and consider that you ARE the earth?

How do you relate to the elemental experiences of your body (earth, fire, air, water, metal)? “The Fluid Self” by Emilee Conrad from Life on Land

In what ways do you feel disconnected from nature?  What do you attribute that to? Is it at all a reflection of feeling disconnected from your sensory experience?

Was there an experience in nature that awoke you to take care of your health physical, mental, emotional as an extension of planetary health?

Is there an earth-based ritual that you incorporate into your health and wellness routine and how is this interrelationship meaningful to you? or is there an experience you are performing out in nature to maintain health and wellness, or as an act of environmental activism

What is the relationship between physical harm to bodies/health and pollution/destruction of land? How does this relate to privilege and race?

How does the work of James Lovelock ( Gaia Theory ) resonate with you and why?

Does the work of Johanna Macy resonate with you and why?
