EYEBEAM – Open Call for Residencies


EYEBEAM – Open Call for Residencies

Eyebeam is pleased to announce its Open Call for 2013 Fall/Winter Residencies: a call which asks, “What are the ground-breaking works that will positively change cultural relationships to new creative technologies?”.

Eyebeam is also thrilled to announce the inaugural Open Call for Collaborative Residency with Public Knowledge, an organization working to ensure policy that provides the public broad access to an open internet and the wealth of knowledge and creativity it contains.

Up to six Residents will join continuing Fellows and Residents in September 2013.

In brief, Eyebeam Residents are selected from a semi-annual open call and receive a 5-month residency with stipend in support of project realization.

– Eyebeam Residency Open Call: JUNE 14, 12PM (noon) EST.
– Collaborative Residency with Public Knowledge: JUNE 28, 12PM (noon) EST.

Eyebeam Creative Residencies

Eyebeam Fellows are artists, hackers, and engineers who spearhead new research and develop exciting new work at the point where art and technology meet. Eyebeam Fellows regularly develop innovative and creative open source technology within an environment that fosters collaborative development. Fellows lead public seminars, exhibitions, and educational programming, and help direct Eyebeam’s Research Groups. These individuals are selected in recognition of their exceptional talent and the belief that a sustained research period is critical for the development of new ideas and innovative work—goals central to Eyebeam’s mission.

Eyebeam Residencies support the creative research, production and presentation of initiatives querying art, technology and culture. The 5 month residency is a period of concentration and immersion in artistic investigation, daring research or production of visionary, experimental applications and projects. Past initiatives have ranged from moving image, sound and physical computing works to technical prototypes, installations and public interventions.

International/out of town applicants

Out of town residents and fellows are responsible for their travel costs, accommodation, and moving expenses. Eyebeam staff will assist as much as possible with locating accommodation in New York.  We can also provide advice in contacting agencies to help negotiate Visa requirements to live and work in the United States.

Residency and fellowship applicants interested in being considered for a future cycle should indicate this preference in the the application form. This can be helpful when taking into consideration the length of time to procure the appropriate visa.
