Deadline: 22 May 2017
The call builds on the STARTS initiative (Innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology, and the ARTS) which promotes the collaboration of artists with R&D (research and development) projects in the field of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) as catalysts of innovation processes.
The call is open to artists willing to collaborate with the partners of an R&D ICT-Project in order to develop, in particular through the production of an original artwork based on its technology, a fresh approach to its innovation challenges.
List of R&D ICT-projects selected by VERTIGO is accessible online here: vertigo.starts.eu/ict-projects/list/.
After having chosen a project in this list, applicants shall elaborate the idea of an original artwork based on its technology. They shall also explain the projected process of its design and production including the expected interactions with the project partners for the investigation of the artistic and technological issues to be explored through experimentation.
The call is open to experienced artists of any artistic field and of any nationality. The only constraint is that the applicant is a physical person and will be the author of the artwork produced in the framework of the residency.
