Ars Electronica and ESA launch Art and Science Open Call

Open Call - Residency at the ESA and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab

This is the fourth residency conducted under the aegis of the European Digital Art and Science Network for which Ars Electronica cordially invites artists to apply. It's an extraordinary opportunity to spend a scientifically inspired stay at one of the world's foremost research institutions, the European Space Agency (ESA). Artists will get an up-close-and-personal look at Europe's space program or experience two historic events live on site: the landing of the Rosetta space probe and the Exo Mars mission.

Art & Science Open Call

ESA and Ars Electronica Futurelab

The initial phase of the residency consists of a 2-6-week stay at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. In the application submitted, the artist must explain why he/she is interested in the specific themes of the ESA's space travel program or in the landings of the Rosetta and/or Exo Mars 2016 spacecrafts.

Phase 2 of the residency is a one-month stay at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, where the facility's staff and mentors will support the artist as he/she goes about creating and developing new works that were inspired by the residency. The Ars Electronica Futurelab's focus is, as always, on the future at the nexus of art, technology and society.

Online Submission

Beginning today, April 20, 2016, artists can submit an application for this ESA Residency online at http://cdn.mlwrx.com/sys/r.aspx?sub=lPneI_MVg2s&link=67TH. The deadline is June 6, 2016 (23:59 CEST/GTM+2). Every submission must include a brief presentation video in which the applicant introduces himself/herself, describes how the residency would be inspirational for the applicant's artistic work, and elaborates on the proposed artistic project. Furthermore, the application must provide a cost estimate as well as links to online material depicting and elaborating on selected works previously done by the artist.
