Call for proposals: Artist in Residence Netherlands Media Art Institute

Starting in 2002, the media lab at the Netherlands Media Art Institute is offering artists from The Netherlands and other countries the possibility of carrying out investigations in three areas:
* Streaming media
* Wireless applications
* 3D applications

Artistic concept, innovation and cooperation are to be central in these investigations. Preference will be given to research which makes use of "open source" and that develops "tools" which will be available for further use. Investigations that have an interdisciplinary character will also receive preference. The artists will be working together with Dutch universities and academies in the research.

--Facilities
An Artist in Residence will have at his/her disposal
Technical facilities, including assistance
Working budget
Housing
Technical specialists advise the participating artists during research, experiments and production.

-- Results
The outcome of the research will be presented in an appropriate manner, through exhibitions, discussions, seminars, publications and workshops.

--- Applications
Applications will be evaluated on the basis of a research proposal with a work plan, which must include a formulation of the problem, and a description of the resources needed (technical and facilities) and the result. The artist should also submit a comprehensive biography, with documentation on his/her previous projects. The final round of the selection process will be based on an interview. The duration of the work will depend on the research proposal, but should run an average of three to six months.

Artist-in-Residence project launch: LivingTomorrow


Artist-in-Residence project launch

a video database work by Linda Wallace
March 11 - 19

Opening: Friday March 11, 17.00 h.

At the launch LivingTomorrow will be discussed by Victoria Lynn, curator and writer, Australian Commissioner, Venice Biennale 2003 and former Creative Director of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne.

At 18.00 h. Linda Wallace introduces the work LivingTomorrow then Victoria Lynn speaks on archive, montage and network, followed by drinks.

LivingTomorrow realises a territory of place and placelessness. It mixes from a database of video fragments to three simultaneous, horizontally-projected image 'streams' -- video fragments of the classic northern Dutch landscape and imperial skies, with images of the urban corporate headquarter area on Amsterdam's fringes, and highly abstracted images derived from the colours and textures of women's headscarves. Into this visual context it fires 'remade readymades' -- video fragments of an internationally popular soap opera, complete with new subtitles. These characters, the artist's puppets, speak of real-life events in Holland as well as their desire to see beyond the world of appearances.

LivingTomorrow will be exhibited in the gallery as well as a selection of other works by Linda Wallace http://www.machinehunger.com.au/LivingTomorrow

Linda Wallace lives and works in Amsterdam; once was medeburger, now is inburger.

Opening hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 13:00 to 18:00 h.
Admission free.

_Pure Data
Pure-Data is a "real-time" graphical programming environment for audio and graphical processing. It was planned as a free, better and more stable Max/fts, which has also been developed by Miller Smith Puckette at IRCAM. It is used as a rapid prototype-software for DSP-algorithms, and also as a music instrument and universal multimedia-software. Being a mature project now, Pure-Data is getting more and more popular in the academic field for teaching and exploring computer music and new media art.

It's hard to describe the possibilities of such an environment as its field of creation is almost infinite. From audio processing, to video, 2D/3D, interactivity, on-line experimentation, streaming and sensors, Pure-Data can handle all of these and provide a rock stable system which is perfect for performances and installations of any kind.

_PDP
PDP is a set of external objects to PD developed by Tom Schouten. They are based on the idea of processing data in packets. While it is primarily used for video, the basic structure of PDP allows any kind of data to be processed into any other kind of data. Images can be converted to textures, that can be changed into sound, converted back to images, changed into sound, re-rendered again as image, and so on. The possibilities are endless.

_Presentation
Sunday March 27th a presentation of the workshop will take place. This presentation will be open to an audience invited by the participants. A short overview of the workshop will be given and the participants can share the creations they have made with each other and with the audience.

_Invited Guests

Aymeric Mansoux (FR)
Artist and co-founder of Goto10, an organization dedicated to set up, produce, and support electronic arts. Since the mid-nineties Aymeric Mansoux has taken part in many experiments based on the internet and the emergence of networks as a cultural fact.
