ARTIST in RESIDENCE [AiR] 2007
OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
+ + DEADLINE: 1 SEPTEMBER 2007 + +
residency period 3 months
dates from September 2007
location Amsterdam, Netherlands
The Netherlands Media Art Institute is pleased to annouce an open call
for the fall 2007 round of its Artist in Residence (AiR) program.
The AiR programme at the Netherlands Media Art Institute aims to support
the exploration and development of new work in
digital/interactive/network media and technology based arts practice.
The residency provides time and resources to artists in a supportive
environment to facilitate the creation of new work that is produced from
an open source perspective. We encourage a cross disciplinary and
experimental approach. This is a practice based residency designed to
enable the development and completion of a new work.
Our focus for this open call is on open source interactive
* installation art, in which the following occurs:
* interaction between tools and/or software
* interaction between tools and artwork
* interaction between audience and artwork
The Netherlands Media Art Institute offers an open environment with
technical assistance and an active advisory board which will give
feedback and support in technical, conceptual and presentation issues.
There is access to studio and exhibition equipment,
technical support from the Institute’s staff and production help from
interns. The technical staff is specialized and has good contacts with
programmers of the following software, a.o.: PD/PDP, Blender, Dynebolic,
Linux. We expect the artist to have knowledge and insight in the
technical realization of the concept.
It is integral to the mission of the AiR program that artists
participate in presenting their work in a public form appropriate to
their project. This can include gallery installations, demonstrations of
research in progress, panel discussions, on-line projects, or multimedia
performances, in addition to open studio events and workshops. For this
reason we ask that artists include in their proposal possible examples
of how they might like to present their work publicly.
At this moment the Netherlands Media Art Institute provides in travel
costs. It doesn’t provide accommodation for artists living outside of
Amsterdam. However, we are willing to help the search but cannot
guarantee a place for living.
