Eyebeam is pleased to announce an open call to apply for the Spring 2003 cycle of its Artists in Residence Program, a multidisciplinary initiative that supports the development, creation and presentation of outstanding new works of art made with digital tools. The AIR Program offers five-month residencies to exceptional artists in three different areas: Education, Emerging Fields and Moving Image. Residents receive a stipend, access to cutting-edge tools, expert technical support from Eyebeam staff, production help from apprentices, and the option to participate in an annual group exhibition.
The wide-ranging annual AIR exhibitions mirror the interdisciplinary studio environment by presenting a constellation of other events, including open studios, demonstrations of research in progress, panel discussions, on-line projects, and multimedia performances. The twelve artists who participated in the program's '02 pilot year were featured in Beta Launch: Artist's in Residence 2002: (http://www.eyebeam.org/artists/air02.html).
The open call for applications begins January 10th. Applications are due February 10th. For more detail about the different residency programs, deadlines, applications and instructions, please refer to the information on Eyebeam web site: (http://www.eyebeam.org/artists/index.html).
