Call No.2 for Web Residencies 2017 by Solitude & ZKM
The organisers are looking for works that challenge the multiplicity and tensions of patterns and chaos – in any art discipline such as the visual, music, sculpture, games or writing. They are looking for artists who face the nonlinear and the unpredictable, who design algorithms to draft the flap of a butterfly's wings, watching out for the change of the course and the rhythm of the world to come.
It is easy to trace a path, but it is difficult to create a sophisticated journey.
The international artist residency Akademie Schloss Solitude and the ZKM | Center for Art and Media award Web Residencies three times a year.
The Web Residencies program was initiated by Akademie Schloss Solitude in 2016 to support young talents from the international digital scene as well as artists of all disciplines who deal with Web-based practices to present the process and results of their work online.
For each call, the curator selects three to four project proposals, whose creators are rewarded with a four-week residency and 500 USD. The focus of the Web Residencies does not lie in the finished art piece but rather the process. Artists are invited to experiment with digital technologies and new art forms at the interface of digital art and communication, and reflect on the topics set by the curators.
Former Solitude fellows or students may apply. There is no age limit.
Applicants for the Web Residencies are welcome to participate in a maximum of three calls. Different projects must be submitted for each call.
Deadline: 23 June 2017
