Open Call

All applications must be received by 12PM (noon) on June 28, 2013. Applicants will be informed of their application status by August 16, 2013.
The 5-month residency will begin in mid to late September (negotiable start date) of 2013 and run through February of 2014. The resident will receive a $5,000 stipend to be paid out over the course of the residency in connection with the achievement of specific milestones.
Public Knowledge and Eyebeam are seeking applications from artists, engineers, designers, curators, and creative technologists interested in being the inaugural resident in our joint residency program. The purpose of the Public Knowledge/Eyebeam Artist Residency is to make policy issues more engaging . Selection will be based on the quality of the proposal, including demonstrable success in previous development of related work at this scale.
At the end of the residency, the resident would be expected to produce a new work at Eyebeam that integrates a physical element (including but not limited to open hardware, 3D printing, or other digital technologies) with an internet-based presence (presentation, documentation, and explanation using pertinent online technologies). The work should have a clear relationship to any of Public Knowledge’s many issue areas. This explanation or relevancy need not be literal. Public Knowledge is not necessarily looking for a work that will directly teach issues. Rather, the goal of the program is to create a new work that raises awareness of an issue with the wider public, and compels people to investigate the issue further. 
The selected resident will be expected to participate in an initial 2-week orientation and familiarization process at Public Knowledge’s Washington, D.C. offices, and then remain in regular contact with Public Knowledge while working at Eyebeam. The resident will be given working space at Eyebeam’s Chelsea, New York City space and have 24/7 access to Eyebeam’s facilities and equipment. The resident will also be expected to take part in Eyebeam’s weekly residents & fellows meetings, monthly “Stop Work” critique sessions, and annual Exhibition of artists’ work, and play an active role in the Eyebeam community.
