CyFer Open Call

Category:

City:

Organisation:

Researchers from the CyFer project, funded by PETRAS, UK, are examining cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and trust in FemTech. Female-oriented technologies (FemTech) promise to enable people to take control of their bodies and lives, helping them overcome the many existing challenges in medical care and research. There is a lack of data about women and other minority and minoritised groups in medical sciences. There is also bias and discrimination in health studies, data sets, and algorithms. FemTech solutions promise to centre these groups in the design and development of their systems. However, the FemTech industry remains largely unregulated. There is a lack of clarity in the law (e.g. GDPR and HIPAA), and in industry and user practice in relation to this extremely sensitive data on different levels i.e. user consent, third-party sharing, and algorithmic bias which may lead to malicious purposes.

We are looking for artists, designers and creative technologists who are interested in exploring FemTech cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and trust. We invite you to create critical artefacts and interventions that include digital and material speculations. You will have the opportunity to explore the technical and social aspects of this complex issue with the project team throughout your engagement, including workshops and informal interaction.

We want to commission a diverse selection of work, creating various new entry points to this research for new audiences. We are open to all types of creative response to this call, but will require there to be a digital aspect to the work, whether this is the work itself or an accompanying artefact.

Commitment: Successful applicants will be expected to participate in activities designed to deepen your knowledge of the subject matter, provide occasional updates to the project team, create an artefact, contribute to a short video, and partake in an interview with the research team after the project. Anonymous participation can be discussed if required.

The team will engage with you throughout the journey to provide you with the relevant scientific resources around FemTech cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and trust. The specific activities (e.g., workshops) will be announced accordingly. We are not able to provide studio/fablab space.

Timeline:

  • The EoI should be submitted by midnight on 21st of August 2022.
  • Successful applicants will be informed by 9th September 2022
  • Successful applicants will be expected to start in Sept/Oct 2022 and finalise their work by the end Jan 2023.
  • The exhibition itself is tbd, dependant on the composition of artists/designers/creative technologists and their anticipated works. However, a launch/exhibition is expected to be held in Mar 2023.
Prize Summary: 
£1500
Prizes Details: 

Selected artists, designers, and creative technologists will receive £1500. You will retain ownership of the work in the long term but will agree to it being exhibited by PETRAS at the end of the project. You will also provide digital artefact(s) which PETRAS will retain use of for future research and public engagement activities.

EoIs are welcome from all over the world. We will cover the costs of transporting works in addition to the £1500 per artist/designer. There is no expectation that all artists/designers must attend anything in person in the UK and we will take a flexible approach to working in person/online/hybrid depending on the composition of the group of successful artists and designers.

The next research trip is scheduled for Feb 28- March 13, 2022. The ship will be loaded on Feb 27 with an anticipated departure date of Feb 28. The ship will return on March 13  and be unloaded on March 14 . The selected artist must be available from Feb 27- March 14, 2022.  The 2 week (optional) residency at Sitka will follow after from March 14 - March 28, 2022.

Artist Receives

•  An opportunity to live on an oceanic research vessel for 14 days and interact with a team of  scientists from Oregon State University and University of Oregon

•  Free room and board while on the ship with an additional (optional) 2 week stay at Sitka's main campus to creatively respond to the experience

•  $1500 artist stipend including travel and materials

The Artist at Sea Residency provides the opportunity for a visual artist, writer or musician to spend 14 days on an oceanic research vessel interacting with a scientific team gathering data on the size structure and composition of zooplankton in marine food webs off of the Oregon and Washington coasts. Oregon State University received grant funding from the National Science Foundation to complete 4 oceanic research trips in 2022-2023.

Click here to view the research project abstract. A visual artist, writer or musician will be invited to participate in each cruise, journal about their experience, and be inspired to create a product that gives a unique voice to the research team’s findings and processes. The goal of this collaboration is to enhance both the scientific process and broaden cultural understanding of science and this specific project.

It is not necessary that the artist’s current work directly relates to plankton or their biology, but it is essential that the artist chosen is exploring environmental themes that highlight ocean ecology and the importance of understanding the benefits and health of this ecosystem.
