INTERNATIONAL ART/SCIENCE/STRATEGY/TACTICS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM
Projekt Atol - Pact Systems 

MAKROLAB - Rottnest Island, Western Australia,  25.2.2000-25.4.2000

Projekt Atol offers four 17 days residencies at the MAKROLAB
(http://makrolab.ljudmila.org) in the period from February 25 until
April 25 2000. The MAKROLAB mark II will be located on Rottnest Island
off the coast of Western Australia and is part of the #home# project,
organised by the Art Gallery of Western Australia and the Perth
festival
2000. MAKROLAB will be equipped with the standard setup of electronic
and analogue research tools. It will be  connected to the matrix through
a microwave link and equipped for transmitting signals on HF, VHF, UHF
and Ku band ranges and receiving signals in the ranges of 0.1-2000 MHz
and in the C and Ku bands. 
The aim of the residency program is to provide artists, activists,
writers, scientists, engineers and strategic and tactical information
analysts with space and facilities to interact with the global systems
of:
TELECOMMUNICATIONS
WEATHER 
MIGRATIONS
and give them opportunity to fully concentrate on their work and
interact in a creative and challenging dialogue with other members of
the crew.

The duties of the participants are to fully take part in the MAKROLAB
DTOA (daily tasking orders activities), which include two daily video
conferences with the interested audience and observers, systems
management, repair and overhaul, and to write a comprehensive diary of
their daily work, schedule and to publish their results on the MAKROLAB
website. All personal produced material remains ownership of the
participants, but the participants have to agree to share all the
material with the MAKROLAB project and crew.
The participants must be aware, that they will work and live in a very
small, concentrated and challenging environment.
Each chosen participant will be provided with HALF economy airfare to
australia and back and visa support and transportation to and from the
island. Each participant should pay a fixed ML environmental and systems
tax of 500 australian dollars. Tax waivers are available for certain
specific cases (explain the reason). 
The maximum baggage allowance is 30 kg and maximum personal equipment
power rating should not exceed 400W in total. It is encouraged that
participants bring their own networkable (UTP LAN) computers, preferably
notebooks. The average daily temperature on site will be around 32
degrees celsius, so adequate clothing is a must.  
Interested participants are strongly encouraged to seek funding in art
foundations and organizations in their respective countries.
Participants are selected on a competitive basis.
All participants will be eligible for the work in the future MAKROLAB
setups, the next confirmed are in Slovenia in August/September 2000 and
then in Scotland in 2001. 

Residencies will take place from February 25 until April 25. 

Applications must include: 
* description of interests for working in the MAKROLAB and a vision of
possible results and interaction with the crew
