After a successful first cycle of the art&science @ ESO – Residency Award, the partnership continues and Ars Electronica together with the European Southern Observatory (ESO) launches the second open call for the Residency program. The residency is in two parts – with an initial 2-6 weeks at ESO, where the winning artists will have a specially dedicated science mentor to inspire him/her and his/her work. The second part will be a month with the Futurelab team and mentor at Ars Electronica Linz with whom the winner will develop and make new work inspired by the residencies. From the first meeting between the artists, their scientific Mentors from ESO and Futurelab mentors, they will all participate in a dialogue which will be a public blog of their creative process until the final work is produced and maybe beyond. In this way, the public will be able to join in the conversation.
The residency will again be part of the „European Digital Art and Science Network“ initiated by Ars Electronica and seven cultural partners throughout Europe (Center for the promotion of science, RS – DIG Gallery, SK – Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation, ES – Kapelica Gallery / Kersnikova, SI – GV Art, UK – Laboral, ES – Science Gallery, IE) with the support of the Creative Europe Program of the EU.
