The Artist in Residence (AiR) programme at the Netherlands Media Art Institute supports the exploration and development of new work in digital/interactive/network media and technology based arts practice. The residency provides time and resources to artists in a supportive environment to facilitate the creation of new work that is produced from an open source perspective. We encourage a cross disciplinary and experimental approach. This is a practice based residency designed to enable the development and completion of a new work.
The ideal candidate will have a broad understanding of contemporary art and theory, as well as media history and visual culture and should have knowledge of requested software, as well as understanding of programming. The artist's intention should be to make a new artwork, to be shown in exhibitions and to be distributed by the Netherlands Media Art Institute and others. (We do not demand exclusivity for presentation or distribution.)
For the AiR program 2010 we manly focus on technology and mobility that can change habits and inhabitation of public spaces. Our goal is to explore mobile and portable platforms as innovative creation and distribution systems. Proposals for users participation and interaction by modified excistend devices as phones, iPod, GPS and others are welcome.
