Mozfest 2014: Call for Artists, Technologists and Curators
Announcement for participation in ‘Art & Culture of the Web' organized by codekatblog and Paula Le Dieu for a Mozilla event in London. Based around the idea of ‘networked art’, I’m sure there is something the Tumblr community could contribute:

As the Internet becomes increasingly ubiquitous around the world, more and more web users are making the transition from consumers to creators, merging art, technology and networks to build new and surprising digital art forms with unprecedented results.
What might the combination of these experiments in theory, code and creativity — a practice we refer to as "networked art" — mean for cultural heritage organizations, artists, technologists and curators? And how might creative works inform our understandings of the open web’s key challenges, from privacy to ownership, and from identity to governance?

Idle Screenings
An exhibition of original and selected artworks, streamed off-demand to your vacant computer. 
Idle Screenings streams art to thousands of desktops daily, through a custom screensaver. The exhibition explores value within an attention economy by showing work in empty rooms, and at the expense of other resources, such as energy, bandwidth, and time.
