Residency: Merge Worlds of Forensics and Art (Scotland)

Open Call for Residency Applications

As part of the inaugural Print Festival Scotland, the University of Abertay Dundee and the art collective Yuck 'n Yum are teaming up to offer an artist-in-residency opportunity within the university’s ground-breaking forensic science department.

Working in collaboration with forensic scientist Dr Kevin Farrugia, the selected artist will get to spend up to four days in Abertay’s forensics labs, exploring the ways print visualization techniques can be manipulated to recover finger- and shoeprints from crime scenes.

Proposals for the residency are welcomed from artists the world over, and there are no limitations as to what form the proposal should take: artists may already be involved in a print-based discipline, but could, equally, specialize in anything from sound installations to technology-driven art.

At the end of the residency, the artist will have the opportunity to exhibit their finished artwork at the inaugural Print Festival Scotland, which will run alongside the acclaimed Impact 8 International Printmaking Conference in Dundee this autumn.

The deadline for submissions is April 19, 2013. The residency itself will take place the week beginning June 17. Visit http://impact.yucknyum.com/ for more info.
