Science Illustrator Internship

WHO:

We seek individuals capable of making atmospheric digital speed paintings as background images as well finely detailed inset images. Ability to create web-based interactive features is also appreciated. We are interested in talent and flexibility more than previous employment as this job will require some collective creative exploration.

WHAT:

The Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (Kyoto, Japan) seeks two science illustrators for a book project introducing a range of historical and contemporary environmental topics in Japan. This unusual graphics-driven book treats subjects ranging from early rice agriculture to twentieth century pollution. It will likely require near fullpage “background” illustration as well as detailed inset drawings of key plants, animals, tools, ecosystem functions and scientific methods.

All pages for the volume should be completed by early 2015. There is some flexibility in working arrangements, but as pages will be co-created by a small (4-5 person) editorial team, ability to relocate to Japan for 2-3 months for a period of intensive work is desirable. Other working arrangements can also be considered. Travel and accommodation (in the RIHN guesthouse) will be provided, as well as a monthly stipend of about $2300. Normal weekly working hours are expected while in Japan.

WHEN:

Skilled illustrators interested in this opportunity should contact Daniel Niles (dniles@chikyu.ac.jp) via email, providing some samples of previous work (links to personal websites are fine) and details of availability between October 2014 and February 2015. Please also indicate your present location, as in early August we can meet with potential illustrators in the SF Bay Area.

LINK:

RIHN is a national research institute that solicits, hosts and funds fixed-term research projects on key areas of interaction between humanity and nature (www.chikyu.ac.jp/rihn_e/index.html). RIHN is located in Kyoto, a city of remarkable cultural vitality and heritage, a center of the Japanese arts as well as other traditions of environmental thought and practice.

Lucid Art Residency Program 2015

WHO:

Must be 18 years or older and a resident of California, have your own means of transportation to, from and during the residency, and have an MFA (or equivalent in independent studio work and an exhibition history). The Selection Committee will consider artists working in painting, drawing, sculpture, installation and mixed media.

WHAT:

The goal of the Lucid Art Residency Program is to provide artists with a serene, retreat-like environment for creative exploration. In line with the mission of the Lucid Art Foundation, artists are supported in their inquiry into consciousness, art and nature.

The Lucid Art Foundation encourages contemplative nonfigurative exploration through automatism, multi-media, conceptual, eco-art and interdisciplinary approches. Inquiry into arts and consciousness is at the heart of the Foundation’s vision and our residency program.

The residency will provide a space to live and a studio called the Ark to work. The Ark studio was built in 1960 and was used by painter Gordon Onslow Ford, painter John Anderson and mixed media artist Fariba Bogzaran. The studio has recently been made available for artists in residence.

During the residency, artists will meet with an artist and educator who will discuss and give feedback on the work created during the residency.

Artists will have access to the Foundation’s extensive Library Resource Center. The Library contains books by many modern, surrealist and contemporary artists such as Roberto Matta, Gordon Onslow Ford, Wolfgang Paalen, Remedios Varo, John Anderson, Lee Mullican and Morris Graves, among others.

WHEN:

Entry Deadline: 11/15/14
