> Subject: ::fc-announce:: Eyebeam Fellowship Applications online!
> Overview of Eyebeam Fellowships
> The application process for Eyebeam's 2007/08 Fellowship program is
> currently open. The deadline for applications is August 6, 2007. All
> applicants will be informed of their application status by October 1,
> 2007. The program duration is for 11 months, running from November to
> September.
> Fellowships will be offered in the R&D OpenLab, the Production Lab
> and the Education Lab. The focus of the Fellowships varies depending
> on the tools and skills available and the creative objectives and
> philosophy of each Lab. Up to five Fellowships will be granted for
> 2007/08.
> http://www.eyebeam.org/production/production.php?page=felcall
> For all of the Fellowships we are seeking applications from artists,
> hackers, designers, engineers and creative technologists to come to
> Eyebeam for a year to undertake new research and develop new work.
> The ideal Fellow has experience working with and making innovative
> technological art and/or creative technology projects and has a
> passion for collaborative development. Fellows will bring this
> experience and working approach to their own independent projects,
> projects initiated by other Residents or Fellows and projects
> conceived collaboratively during the Fellowship period.
> Fellows are selected from an open call. International applicants are
> welcome to apply although we do not have the resources to provide
> travel or accommodation. We are happy to work with selected
> applicants, where required, to help them to secure funds to cover
> these expenses. International Fellows are responsible for securing
> their own visas for the Fellowship period.
> Fellows receive a $30,000 stipend and health benefits during their
> stay. They are able to take on additional external teaching or
> consulting work, but there is an expectation that Fellows will be
> working at Eyebeam a minimum of four days a week.
> Collaborative partnerships at Eyebeam will be fostered though group
> critiques, discussions and projects, within and between the lab
> environments and residency programs. Fellows also benefit from
> critiques, lectures and workshops by external practitioners chosen
> for their relationship to subjects and projects being worked on in
> the Labs.
> All Fellows are encouraged to share their skills and knowledge with
> the larger Eyebeam community by conducting formal and/or informal
> workshops with others in the Labs as well as possible workshops open
> to the public. There are also opportunities to develop work for
> performance, events, seminars, exhibition or other public programming
> in the Eyebeam galleries (and beyond) during the term of the
> fellowship. Core to our principle at Eyebeam is the brokering of
> relationships between artists, hackers, coders, engineers and other
> creative technologists and the contexts we provide. The intention is
> to foster and facilitate relationships whereby technologists and
> artists can come together to germinate and hothouse their ideas,
> develop new processes and create new works through a period of
> immersion in a social context which is rich in technology, expertise
> and ideas.
> Research Themes
> We also support research groups to bring together creative
> practitioners working at Eyebeam as well as expert external
> participants. New research leads to possible public outcomes
> including seminars, public discussion and exhibition.
> Research themes for 2007/08 include (though will not be limited to):
> * Energy, Technology and Sustainability
> * Urban research, urban interventions and media in public space
> Artists and creative technologists interested in these research areas
> are particularly encouraged to apply for 2007/08 Fellowships.
> Application Requirements
> Applications received after the deadline of August 6, 2007, will not
> be accepted. All applications and work samples must be submitted
> through the online form. No exceptions will be made. You can create a
> user/password during the application process and log back into the
> server to update your application before the final deadline.
> Complete applications must include the following information:
> * Contact Information
> * Resume or CV (rtf or pdf doc)
> * Work samples in the form of URLs or uploaded media
>     * Include a project description with your work sample that
> explains your contribution to the piece, how it was meant to be
> viewed and how it relates to your proposed project(s).
> * Concise responses to all application questions
> Incomplete applications will not be considered.
> Please read the guidelines for each of the Fellowships carefully.
> Each working environment has different sets of tools and different
> mentors/trainers for these tools, so applicants should consider which
> environment will best suit their own needs and experience. However,
> all artists, technologists and residents have access to resources
> across all three labs and programs.
> If you have any questions, please email fellowshipinfo at eyebeam.org.
> Thanks, we are excited to hear from you!
