Artists in Residence Program
Deadline: July 15, 2005

The Experimental Television Center announces the next deadline for the Artists in Residency Program, July 15, 2005, for residencies between September 1, 2005 and January 31, 2006.

The Residency supports contemporary electronic media art projects. The studio workshop environment offers access to an image processing system, intensive individualized instruction and time for exploration and personal creative growth. Artists have an opportunity to study the processes and techniques of analog and digital imaging and to then use the system independently in the creation of new works. Participating artists have complete aesthetic and technical control over all aspects of the making process.

The image processing system is a hybrid tool set which facilitates interactive relationships between older historically important analog instruments such as colorizers and keyers, and new digital technologies using several G4s incorporating sonic and control modules by Doepfer, software including Max/MSP and Jitter, as well as DVD authoring and editing software. This rich electronic environment encourages artists to explore boundaries and intersections within narrative, documentary and social issue traditions as well as more experimental forms.

With support from mediaThe foundation, we have been able to significantly advance the digital components of the imaging system, incorporating a second Power Mac G4, along with DVD Studio Pro, Flash and other software; a customized Doepfer A-100 system with sonic and control modules; and innovative new interactive software, including Max and Jitter from Cycling 74. A complete list is available by email.

The postmark deadline is July 15th. You are encouraged to email the written materials.

To apply please send the following:
1. A brief project description
2. A current resume
3. A prioritized set of dates between September 2005 and January 2006.
4. A sample of completed work with SASE if you wish it returned.
