CoLab Techart Fellowship

Share

Eligibility:

This CoLab TechArt Fellowship is inspired by Jaaga & BeFantastic.in’s resolve to grow the community of techartists and foster creative engagement in leading digital technologies. The Fellowship is offered online and is directed to aspiring techart practitioners from any discipline of art and design. In the challenges of the times, we present the CoLab Fellowship as online program that opens the doors to exciting possibilities in international collaborations.

Supported by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore and British Council’s Architecture and Design Festivals and Biennales grant, this edition of the CoLab Fellowship creates a bridge between Germany, South Asia, UK & India. It is a unique  opportunity for a community of hand-picked international fellows to use the limitations of the current moment to explore and showcase collaborative learning and making with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies. Over a two week period we will spend time synchronously four hours daily, working and dialoging with peers and experts who come in as trainers, provocateurs and facilitators.

Motion Design/Animation/Augmented Reality Open Call - City of Vienna, A1 Telekom Austria, Azoomee London

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Brief introduction:

*PAID OPPORTUNITY*. The educational media company, Azoomee, is partnering with Stadt Wien (city of Vienna) and the leading mobile network operator in Austria, A1, to promote the new installation of 5G. With the help of local artists, Azoomee's aim is to create an inspiring and exciting augmented reality experience app for children (age 5-10) as they are guided by a tour guide through Vienna's Town Hall. Its rooms will hold secret worlds to find and explore through provided mobile phone screens and each room will showcase the designs of one local artist or collective. The app will take the children on a journey of imagination to accompany the tour, with an emphasis on engaging story-telling and imaginative 2D and 3D animated injections to the grand rooms of the building. 

Description:

London based educational media distributor Azoomee has partnered with the city of Vienna and the Austrian Telecom provider A1 to promote the new installation of 5G in the city. The aim of the project is to provide an augmented reality application for children on provided mobile phones which will be used as an extension to an already existing tour of the Town Hall, given by tour guides. The children will be handed a mobile phone at the beginning of the tour. The tour guide will introduce each room with fun facts and stories, after which the children will be given the opportunity to use the phones to search the room for any ‘hidden’ augmented reality features.

The animations should either enhance existing features of the room to accompany the story given by the tour guide, or tell their own imaginative stories. The artist(s) should bring flair and excitement into the building's rooms with their animations. Creatures, hidden rooms, trap doors, fantastical environments and landscapes are all very welcome. 

Each selected artist(s) will be given a budget of around €1500 - €2000 to work with, and will have a 4-week timeframe within which to produce this experience. Their work will be showcased for a period of 6 months from September 14th, and will be the first use of augmented reality at the cross section between public art and educational entertainment worldwide featuring area target technology.

3D animations can be done via all programs with the possibility of export to Unity, e.g. Maya, Blender, C4D, Max, etc

2D animations ideally made in Spine. 

Prizes Details: 

Selected artists will be paid from 1500 Euros for their work.

4 subnetAIR CALLS in September 2020 at Schmiede Hallein

Share

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Keywords:

This year we, subnet and Schmiede, can offer four subnetAIR units (€ 1,500 each) in the period from September 1 to October 5, 2020 in Hallein. SchmiedeParticipation is a prerequisite.

The year 2020 is not what it seemed, we are adapting. Promised subnetAIRs 2020 had to be postponed to 2021. The current situation makes travel unpredictable and prevents the usual close collaboration with the researchers at the Center for HCI. That is why subnet 2020 will break new ground. We are cooperating with Schmiede Hallein and will work in the Saline on Pernerinsel in Hallein, instead of in Salzburg. The Center for HCI is at our side as far as possible with advice, action and technology. The Saline will be available as a work studio from September 1st to October 5th. The exact room layout will take place in consultation and taking into account the developing realities of Schmiede.

Schmiede20: Pferde / Horses takes place from September 16 to 25. SchmiedeApplication is a prerequisite. The application is already online. Reference to subnetAIR submission in the SchmiedeApplication makes sense.

Key data:
# 4 x € 1,500 for at least 3 weeks in Hallein
# Possible period: September 1st to October 5th
# Work room in the saline
# Schmiede20: Pferde / Horses September 16-25
# The center for HCI is optionally available with know-how for projects with a focus on physical computing, hardware hacking and tinkering.
# Travel, accommodation and meals are to be carried autonomously.

Procedure:
# The application should not be longer than three pages and should consist of a concept, curriculum vitae and references.
# An independent jury selects and awards.
# The residency begins with a public meeting (meet the artist, online) and ends with a presentation and documentation of the results.
# The subnetAIR fee is paid 50% at the beginning and 50% after documentation.

Expectation:  Process documentation & work that can be exhibited

Objective:
The subnetAIR program actively promotes artists and makes them public. subnetAIR counteracts the bottleneck in production and presentation rooms and lowers barriers in favor of realizing sound project ideas by providing infrastructure and know-how in our field of activity.

Place: Saline Pernerinsel // Smithy Hallein // Smithy in 5:20

Application deadline: June 20, 2020

Deadline:

Four plus one Elements

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

KINONO Tinos Art Gathering introduces the thematic proposal "FOUR (PLUS ONE) ELEMENTS”, borrowing the four natural elements (earth, water, air, fire) and distinguishing their partnership in the creation, over time, of the peculiar natural and man-made environment of the island of Tinos. By creating different conditions of studying space, which monitor the cycle-chain of transformation from one natural element to another, KINONO imagines the partnership of a combination of two elements, under the influence of time, in each one of the hand-picked locations, as follows:

Fire-Water/Koumelas Quarries, Water-Earth/Plain of Komi, Earth-Fire/Ismael village, Fire-Air/Papargyras Lighthouse, Air-Earth  /Kakia Skala, Air-Water/Livada Beach.

This 23-day interdisciplinary, gathering of creators and thinkers and the dialogue between them will culminate in three days of collective presentations (October 15-18), per location, of a series of symposia, on-site research projects and workshops, performing arts, art exhibitions.

We invite those interested to choose one element, along with one of the three respective locations, stating in their application their desired method of participation in the residency (full duration / limited (guest) duration or online)
