Call for proposals: Artist in Residence Netherlands Media Art Institute


Starting in 2002, the media lab at the Netherlands Media Art Institute 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
Technical specialists advise the participating artists during  research, 
experiments and production.

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

--- Applications
Applications will be evaluated 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.
