Event Description

EdLab Digital Art Residency (EDAR)

EDAR 2008 takes place June 15th – August 31st.

Digital media is changing the nature of communication and the way people access and understand information. The EdLab Digital Art Residency (EDAR), supported by the Gottesman Libraries (Teacher College, Columbia University), aims to explore these changes across a broad range of multimedia and technologies. Our goal is to showcase art that challenges our community to reflect on the impact of digital culture. EDAR awards selected artists a $4000 commission to create a work of art and a related exhibition that explores the theme of the artwork alongside the educational goals at Teachers College.

In addition to holding the largest collection of materials devoted to the educating professions, the library has been developing a range of new services to meet the needs of students and faculty members interested in both accessing and producing educational and research materials in multiple media. Included in recent library initiatives have been centers and work groups organized to support educational software development, media design, educational consulting, and publishing. These units are organized within the library, a unit focused on advancing education for the information age.

The library is eager to develop opportunities for students and faculty at the College to interact with professionals in other organizations engaged in the creation of new educational resources. EDAR will bring working art and media professionals from relevant organizations for short visits to the campus where they will have time to interact with the College community. The visiting residents will work on site at EdLab over 12 weeks, and develop an exhibition to be mounted in a library exhibition space. Perhaps even more important is the opportunity to develop professional relationships that would extend beyond the fellowship period.

EDAR artists must:
* Work 12 days on site (80 hours total)

* Host 4 open studio sessions (8 hours total)

* Deliver a finished artwork/installation

* Co-create exhibition materials to accompany the artwork

The application process involves describing a potential digital art project and how it could impact the College community. This information will help us to determine how to structure a valuable collaboration. For more about our community, see the EdLab website and, specifically, our “Foundational Projects.”

Please submit all application materials via email. Please have the following application materials ready by the application deadline: June 2, 2008. Notification is June 6, 2008.

* Cover Letter

* Artist Resume/CV

* Work Samples: include at least 10-20 images no larger then 1024x768 dpi (we suggest including images of at least 5 different artworks)

Selection Process
EDAR is an open call for artists, including internet and computer-based artists, filmmakers, sound and video artists, and artists who work in various forms from physical installation to a virtual Internet project. Terms of EDAR include one commissioned work, teaching the College community through workshops, and designing an educational exhibition. The exhibition will be mounted after the residency period.
