Residencies Fall 2003

  • Deadline:
    June 9, 2003, 2:12 p.m.

The Experimental Television Center announces the next deadline for the Artists in Residency Program, July 15th, for residencies between September 3rd, 2003 and January 31, 2004.

The Residency supports contemporary electronic media art projects. Through individualized instruction, we provide artists 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. The Center provides a retreat-like environment where artists working in all genres are encouraged to explore concepts of digital and analog imaging and to experiment and expand the formal boundaries of moving-image media. Participating artists have complete aesthetic and technical control over all aspects of the making process.

The image processing system is a hybrid tool set, permitting the artist to create interactive relationships between older historically important analog instruments and new digital technologies. The system offers a unique experience because it is an integration of historically significant artists'-designed analog modules such as colorizers and image processors, as well as commercially available tools, and integrates both analog and computer-based components.

In 2003 with a grant from mediaThe foundation, we are 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.

The postmark deadline (emailed requests are acceptable) is July 15th

1. A brief project description
2. A current resume
