The Netherlands Media Art Institute, Montevideo is pleased to annouce 
an open call for the Spring 2006 round of its Artist in Residence 
(AiR) program.

The AiR programme at the Netherlands Media Art Institute aims to 
support the exploration and development of new work in 
digital/interactive/network media and technology based arts practice. 
The residency provides time and resources to artists in a supportive 
environment to facilitate the creation of new work that is produced 
from an open source perspective. We encourage a cross disciplinary 
and experimental approach. This is a practice based residency 
designed to enable the development and completion of a new work.

Our focus for this open call is on open source interactive 
installation art, in which the following occurs:
interaction between tools and/or software
interaction between tools and artwork
interaction between audience and artwork

The Netherlands Media Art Institute offers an open environment with 
technical assistance and an active advisory board which will give 
feedback and support in technical, conceptual and presentation 
issues. There is access to studio and exhibition equipment,
technical support from the Institute's staff and production help from 
interns. The technical staff is specialized and has good contacts 
with programmers of the following software, a.o.: PD/PDP, Blender, 
Dynebolic, Linux. We expect the artist to have knowledge and insight 
in the technical realization of the concept.

It is integral to the mission of the AiR program that artists 
participate in presenting their work in a public form appropriate to 
their project. This can include gallery installations, demonstrations 
of research in progress, panel discussions, on-line projects, or 
multimedia performances, in addition to open studio events and 
workshops. For this reason we ask that artists include in their 
proposal possible examples of how they might like to present their 
work publicly.

At this moment the Netherlands Media Art Institute provides in travel 
costs. It doesn't provide accommodation for artists living outside of 
Amsterdam. However, we are willing to help the search but cannot 
guarantee a place for living.

Application using the application form can be send to:
