RIXC announced that the call for the first RIXC Art, Science & Techo-Ecologies Residency is closed with the selection of residency artist Juan Duart (Finland). The call is still open for the fully funded second and third residencies until January 15, 2023, and October 15, 2023.

The first residency artist, Juan Duarte, is a Mexican artist based in Finland, who works with environmental sound to explore sensing in-between nature and technology. His work deals with developing methods for augmented listening, which combine machine learning with remote sensing, in order to explore how computers could deep-listen to expand human sensorium.

The call is open for the second and third residencies of the new Residency Program for Baltic and Nordic artists who work on the edge of art, science and techno-ecologies, exploring the complex relations between the human, nature and digital technologies, and focusing on new concepts such as “naturecultures”, “sensing environments”, “living technologies”, “terrestrial coexistence”, “naturally / artificial intelligences”, which recently have beenre-examined at the heart of our society.

Three Art, Science and Techno-Ecologies residencies, two-month each, for Baltic and Nordic artists will take place at RIXC in Riga, Latvia, during the time period from February 1, 2023, until March 31, 2024, supported by NCP (Nordic Culture Point). The three fully-funded Baltic-Nordic Artist Residencies will also include a trip and short-stay visits to RIXC Fields residency (in rural area) and their partner location – at the Irbene Radiotelescope.
