Digit Art and Scholarship in Residence

by Nick Montfort · , 6:32 am

It’s good to see expanding and continuing opportunities for residencies in digital media – for both scholars and artists.

At Cornell, there’s a chance for six to eight people to earn Society for the Humanities Fellowships to study “Networks/Mobilities” – relating to the theme of the recent HASTAC II conference in Irvine and Los Angeles. Those selected will work with two senior scholars in residence. In Fall 2009, this person will be Keller Easterling, Associate Professor of Architecture, Yale University. The Spring 2009 scholar will be Brian Massumi, Professor of Communications, University of Montreal. Application procedures, requirements, and terms. The hard deadline for receipt of all application materials is 1 October 2008.

The Digital Technology & Culture Program at Washington State University Vancouver, directed by Dene Grigar, has just named those who will take part in its 2008 Artists in Residency Program, “Sensing Bodies: Physical Computing for Interactivity & Innovation.” Steve Gibson and Justin Love of Canada will be the first artists in the program this year, leading a workshop “Sensor Technologies for Creating Interactive Art.” Will Luers from nearby Portland, Oregon will then teach “Walk Art.” Finally, Julie Andreyev and Simon Lysander Overstall from Canada will offer a workshop “VJ Fleet.” WSU’s DTC program is not accepting applications yet for next year, but look for the call in the future, as these residencies just announced continue a program started last year.
