After three successful years within the Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN Award, CERN and Ars Electronica decided to continue this fruitful cooperation and again launch an open call to win a fully funded residency for up to 2 months at CERN followed by a residency at the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The continuation of Collide@CERN will be realized within the „European Digital Art and Science Network“.
Within the Collide@CERN Ars Electronica Award artists from any country are invited to apply for a fully funded residency for up to 2 months at CERN, an international center of excellence, an inspirational place for artists and designers to explore and extend their research in order to find new artistic approaches. The Ars Electronica Futurelab as second residency destination, where the awarded artist will spend another month, focuses on the future of the nexus of art, technology and society. The lab’s team bases its work commitment upon transdisciplinary research and work which results in a variety of different disciplines. Having Artists and Researchers from all over the globe collaborating with – and taking residencies at – the Ars Electronica Futurelab, is fundamental to this Atelier/Laboratory.
We are looking for digital artists who will be truly inspired by CERN, showing their wish to engage with the ideas and/or technology of particle physics and with CERN as a place of scientific collaboration, using them as springboards of the imagination which dare to go beyond the paradigm. You might be a choreographer, performer, visual artist, film maker or a composer – what you all have in common is that you use the digital as the means of making your work and/or the way of presenting it.
