Funded Winter Residency for Interactive Artists

Spend 1-2 months working on interactive art in an urban environment.

Description of residency program
Laboratory’s mission is to provide practicing interactive artists with the time, space, and freedom to make awesome stuff. So we want to offer you space to live, space to work, tools, mentorship, and connections to make that happen. Plus, a $200 a month stipend if you have the right to work in the USA, so that's cool.

If you’d love to come out and spend some time here between 01 March 2019 and 30 April 2019, we’re currently accepting applications for spring 2019 residents and we’d love to get your application. Details on applying are on the How to Apply page, deadline is 10 November 2019.

Duration of residency
1-2 months

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
We're a residency focused on interactive art. That often, but not necessarily, means technology, and to that end, we've got a bunch of tech stuff, like Kinects, Arduinos, and so many projectors. We also offer mentorship along those lines, although you should have at least a basic understanding of the technology you plan to use when coming here.

Living and working spaces
You will have a private bedroom in a 2 bedroom apartment. You'll also have access to studio space on the floor below, that winds up being a mix of shared and private space, depending on how you and your cohort-mates work.

Fees and support
If you have work authorization in the US, you'll get a $200/month living stipend. Hooray!

Expectations towards the artist
You will be expected to complete your proposal and show it publicly. We also spend 1 day a week working at a local STEM-focused high school, where we work on our projects and have access to bigger tools like laser cutters and CNC mills. There are usually opportunities to give talks at local universities as well (unpaid, unfortunately)

Application information
Instructions for application are on our website, but you'll basically be putting together 1 page about yourself, a 1 page proposal for what you'd do here, and send that to us.
