Eyebeam will provide up to 10 residencies this cycle. In Eyebeam’s new Creative Studios in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, the organization hopes to support a record number of residents who will actively use Eyebeam’s facilities and tools. The residencies will begin in September, 2015, lasting four to six months, dependent upon need. Residents will not receive housing but will receive some assistance in locating temporary housing. The call is open to both national and international applicants.
Eyebeam is seeking applications from artists, engineers, designers, and technologists, whose practice will clearly benefit from Eyebeam and mesh well, both in practice and in skillsets, to create a collaborative cohort. The purpose of the residency is to support creation of new work that addresses the Focus Areas of this residency call while ideally fully utilizing Eyebeam’s tools, space, and community. The new works developed, and the process of their creation, will be presented by Eyebeam, with additional opportunities for public presentation and discussion.
