Eyebeam (NY), International Call for Applicants: Eyebeam Residency 2020, with stipend

Eyebeam (NY), International Call for Applicants: Eyebeam Residency 2020, with stipend

Deadline: June 21st, 2019

A stipend of $22,000 is offered to all residents.

From their call: When ideals of capitalist progress become the driver of societal value, a position of refusal can be a political and necessary act. Eyebeam’s 2020 Residency Open Call asks applicants to consider refusal as it relates to technology and its impact on society. How do acts of refusal manifest in one’s life and work poetically or directly?

Guided by the central prompt “what are the terms of refusal?” Eyebeam’s 2020 Residency will be punctuated by four key intensives which will be focused on research, experimentation, and exchange. They will be 3-4 days in duration, and organized by international and local visiting professionals who are working creatively as technologists, activists, and stewards of ideas in their fields. The intensives will dive into ideas of refusal in direct response to the residency cohort’s projects and research.

Website link for more detailed information, advisors and potential areas of focus: http://www.eyebeam.org/2020-residency-open-call/

About: Eyebeam has committed to amplifying the voices of artists, inventors, designers and engineers who show us the horizon of what is possible, creating space for nearly 500 of them to imagine the future. Society’s ever-shifting relationship to technology can be charted through the work of those that have come through our doors over the past two decades. Now in our permanent home in the thriving creative district of Bushwick, Brooklyn, Eyebeam continues to be a power station for invention, providing a space for experimentation that propels and uplifts the cultural conversation. Now more than ever, Eyebeam radically centers artists in the cultural conversation, giving them the support to both interrogate and re-imagine what technology can be and who it is for.
