Harvestworks New Works Residency for technology artists, NYC
The Harvestworks New Works Residency is a national program that offers American artists and legal US residents commissions of up to $5000 to make a new work in our Technology, Engineering, Art and Music (TEAM) lab. Each artist receives up to a $2000 artist fee with the balance of the award used for TEAM lab activities including research and development, sound and image production, programming and prototyping. The artist works with a team comprised of Harvestworks’ Project Manager and consultants, technicians or instructors. The proposed projects should explore new aesthetic premises and push the boundaries of conventional art forms and media.
Projects may be realized through multiple channel audio or video installations, live performances with interactive performance systems and live processing methods, data visualization as single or multiple channel video or computer images and hardware hacking or circuit bending as custom built interfaces or instruments. Project descriptions may include developing a new work for music, theater, media art and interdisciplinary performance; experimenting with new creative concepts, approaches, or methods and researching and developing new technology for use in performance (e.g. musical instrument invention or preparing technology for an existing premiere performance) or exhibition.
Up to 12 residencies will be selected (depending on project size and funding) along with up to five project scholarships. Priority will be given to the creative use of the Harvestworks’ production facility and the innovative use of sound, image and emerging technology.
