Eyebeam is currently calling for Fellowship applications in all three of our lab environments.
The application deadline is Aug. 14 at 12pm EST. Up to six Fellowships will be granted for 2006/07.
Fellowships will be offered in the R&D OpenLab, the Production Lab and for the first time, in the Education Lab. The focus of the Fellowships varies depending on the tools and skills available and the creative objectives and philosophy of each Lab.
For all of the Fellowships we are seeking applications from artists, hackers, designers, engineers and creative technologists to come to Eyebeam for a year to undertake new research and develop new work.
The ideal Fellow has experience working with and making innovative technological art projects and/or creative technology projects and has a passion for collaborative development. Fellows will bring this experience and working approach to their own independent projects, projects initiated by other resident artists or Fellows and projects conceived collaboratively during the Fellowship period.
The program duration is for 11 months, running from October to August. Fellows are selected from an open call. International applicants are welcome to apply although we do not have the resources to cover travel and accommodation. We are happy to work with selected applicants, where required, to help them to secure funds to cover these expenses.
Fellows receive a $30,000 stipend and health benefits during their stay. They are able to take on additional external teaching or consulting work, but there is an expectation that Fellows will be working at Eyebeam a minimum of four days a week.
Please read the guidelines for each of the Fellowships carefully.
Each working environment has different sets of tools and different mentors/trainers for these tools, so applicants should consider which environment will best suit their own needs and experience. However, all artists, technologists and residents have access across the lab environments and programs.
Working connections at Eyebeam will be fostered though group critiques, discussions and projects, within and between the lab environments and residency programs. Fellows also benefit from critiques, lectures and workshops by external practitioners chosen for their relationship to subjects and projects being worked on in the Labs.
All Fellows are encouraged to share their skills and knowledge with the larger Eyebeam community by conducting formal and/or informal workshops with others in the Labs as well as possible workshops open to the public.
There are also opportunities to develop work for performance, events, seminars, exhibition or other public programming in the Eyebeam galleries (and beyond) during the term of the fellowship.
Core to our principle at Eyebeam is the brokering of relationships between artists, hackers, coders, engineers and other creative technologists and the contexts we provide. The intention is to foster and facilitate relationships whereby technologists and artists can come together to germinate and hothouse their ideas, develop new processes and create new works through a period of immersion in a social context which is rich in technology, expertise and ideas.
During 2006 we are also establishing research groups to bring together creative practitioners working at Eyebeam as well as expert external participants to develop new research leading to possible public outcomes including seminars, public discussion and exhibition.
Themes for 2006/07 include (though will not be limited to):
- Energy, Technology and Sustainability;
- Urban research, urban interventions and media in public space.
Artists and creative technologists interested in these research areas are particularly encouraged to apply for 2006/07 Fellowships.
Founded in 1997, Eyebeam is an art and technology center that provides a fertile context and state-of-the-art tools for digital experimentation. It is a lively incubator of creativity and thought, where artists and technologists actively engage with the larger culture, addressing the issues and concerns of our time. Eyebeam challenges convention, celebrates the hack, educates the next generation, encourages collaboration, freely offers its output to the
community, and invites the public to share in a spirit of openness:
open source, open content and open distribution.
Eyebeam's programs are made possible through the generous support of Atlantic Foundation, Time Warner Youth Media and Arts Fund, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, Alienware, the Jerome Foundation, the Helena Rubinstein Foundation, the Greenwall Foundation, the Bay Branch Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the David S.
