Call for Proposals
Artist in Residence


Starting in 2002, the media lab at the Netherlands Media Art Institute,
Montevideo/Time Based Arts is offering artists from The Netherlands and
other countries the possibility of carrying out investigations in three areas:

*	Streaming media
*	Wireless applications
*	3D applications

Artistic concept, innovation and cooperation are to be central in these
investigations. Preference will be given to research which makes use of
"open source" and that develops "tools" which will be available for
further use. Investigations that have an interdisciplinary character will
also receive preference. The artists will be working together with Dutch
universities and academies in the research.


An Artist in Residence will have at his/her disposal

*	Technical facilities, including assistance
*	Working budget
*	Housing

Technical specialists advise the participating artists during  research,
experiments and production.


The outcome of the research will be presented in an appropriate manner,
through exhibitions, discussions, seminars, publications and workshops.


Applications will be evaluated twice a year by an internal committee. This
will be done on the basis of a research proposal with a work plan, which
must include a formulation of the problem, and a description of the
resources needed (technical and facilities) and the result. The artist
should also submit a comprehensive biography, with documentation on
his/her previous projects. The final round of the selection process will
be based on an interview. The duration of the work will depend on the
research proposal, but should run an average of three to six months.
