The Harvestworks artist in residence is a national program offers American artists commissions of up to $5000 to make a new work in the technology, engineering, art and music (TEAM) lab. New works may include multiple channel audio or video installations, interactive performance systems, data visualization or projects involving hardware hacking, circuit bending or custom built interfaces, as well as projects that use the web. The artist works with a team comprised of a project manager, engineer and programmer. A limited number of scholarships and Technology Lab workspace residencies will be awarded.
Only for American artists. Emerging artists and artists of color are encouraged to apply. Please note that there is a $5 fee to be paid upon submission.
The Interactive Technology Project offers a laboratory-like setting for the development of interactive computer environments, installations and instruments that foster new modes of perception and performance. Founded as a not-for-profit organization by artists in 1977, Harvestworks has helped a generation of artists create new works using technology. They want to support the creation and presentation of art works achieved through the use of new and evolving technologies. Also they want to create an environment where artists can make work inspired and achieved by electronic media; to create a responsive public context for the appreciation of new work by presenting and disseminating the finished works; to advance the art community's and the public's "agenda" for the use of technology in art; and to bring together innovative practitioners from all branches of the arts collaborating in the use of electronic media. They assist with commissions and residencies, production services, education and information programs, and the presentation and distribution of their work.
