Digital Earth: Call for research projects

Digital Earth is a decentralised and global 6 months research fellowship for 15 artists and designers to create work that explores the materiality and immateriality of the technological reality we live in. Geographically, the focus of the research is on the countries that are part of the new silk roads connecting Africa to Asia, through Central Asia and the Middle East. The fellowship consists of a monthly stipend and production costs, mentorship and other various resources. The final projects will be exhibited in a roaming exhibition.

Deadline: August 19

Duration: September 2018 until February 2019

Institutes that are involved to support the fellows are: Ashkal Alwan, Electric South, Strelka, Hivos, Global Media Technologies & Cultures Lab MIT, Strelka and the British Council and The New Center for Research and Practice.
