ESA Art and Science Residency

WHO:

Artists above the age of 18 from all countries are invited to apply to the art&science@ESA residency

We are looking for digital artists who will be truly inspired by the scientific work enabled and achieved by ESA. This competition is open for artists to propose all kind of innovative concepts and ideas in the field of art and technology: interactive art, digital music/sound art, computer animation / Film / VFX, digital communities, hybrid art, performance & choreography, digital design.

WHAT:

Ars Electronica is a cultural institution working on the intersection between art, technology and society. It was founded in 1979 and is based in Linz, Austria. ESA, in partnership with Ars Electronica, is announcing art&science@ESA, a new art residency to explore the fertile ground between art and space science.

The concept description should be concrete and it should explain the essentials of the idea, either focusing on ESA’s space science programme in general, on a particular science mission, or on the 2016 Rosetta and/or ExoMars landings. In addition, the submission should also explain how and why the ideas and science generated by a residency at ESA and the work at Ars Electronica Futurelab are essential to the art project and the work of the artist.

The production plan should contain a clear description of the production tasks involved in the project, and how and why the collaboration with the Ars Electronica Futurelab personnel could be beneficial for the realisation and production of the proposed idea.

2016 Uptown Tree Program

WHO:

National art call. All artwork must be original or limited edition pieces.

WHAT:

The first “planting” of trees along the corridor in 2014 included ten trees that have added interest, form, color and fun to the City of Greeley, Colorado. Five additional trees were added for the 2015 phase. Over the next two years, this program will add fifteen (15) more original sculptural art trees. Artists are invited to apply their creative energies to continue the series of Art Trees.

Seven (7) additional art trees will be added in the September of 2016. The intent of the program is to purchase tree sculptures that are diverse. Maximum creativity in design and selection of materials is encouraged. All forms of media that are appropriate and complementary to the project, theme and site, that can withstand Colorado’s weather extremes, require little or no maintenance and do not invite vandalism will be considered.

There isn’t a common theme and each tree will be completely unique. Art tree designs may range from literal to surreal, to kinetic, to musical and to just plain fun. There may be abstract sculptures that don’t appear to have anything arboreal about them. Any form balanced in a tree-like pose that is sculpted around a ’trunk’ and ‘rooted’ in a large planter box will meet the ‘tree’ definition of this program.

WHEN:

Proposals due by midnight May 11, 2016
