Artist at Sea Program

WHO:

Professional and student artists are invited to apply. Schmidt Ocean Institute is open to all art mediums including animation, bioart, data, digital, imaging, drawing, installation, painting, printmaking, sculpture, sound, film, writing, wearables, etc. Artists of all nationalities are welcome, however, artists will be responsible for obtaining their own visa (country dependent) applicable to the countries to be visited. Applicants must be over the age of eighteen and have previous work available for review in a digital format (e.g. pictures, website, etc.).

WHAT:

Tahitian Hydrothermal Vents – Out of this World Landscape – February 17, 2016 – March 2, 2016

In February, a team of scientists will sail out of Tahiti to study the underexplored submarine vents off the Society Islands in the South Pacific Ocean. Using multibeam echosounders for mapping the bottom of the ocean, taking water samples from deep below the surface, and operating an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) near hydrothermal vents, scientists will be able to create detailed maps of uncharted seafloor and gas-rich plumes, as well as investigate novel forms of chemically-fueled seafloor habitat and chemosynthetic ecosystems. The artist will learn about these poorly-understood deep-sea ecosystems, the process of exploration, and illustrate these “other-worldly” systems.

Research vessel Falkor provides a unique platform allowing artists to engage directly with the ocean in a new and challenging way. Artists will be expected to contribute daily reflections in an online blog, and share final art pieces through Schmidt Ocean Institute’s website, as well as potential exhibition spaces. One piece of artists’ choice will be asked to be left aboard Falkor to be shared and enjoyed by those who travel and visit on Falkor in the future. Art instillations could become a part of Falkor with prior consent (e.g. wall mural).

Each artist will be asked to complete a community service or outreach project in line with their talents and passions (e.g. school visit, community presentation, remote connection from Falkor, etc.). Schmidt Ocean Institute will assist the artist before they arrive on Falkor to decide on a community project.
