We’re teaming up with up with Eyebeam, an art and technology center in New York, to create an artist residency program. Interested? Apply below.
One of the things we struggle with at Public Knowledge is how to make our issues accessible to people. While we think the intricacies of copyright law and authority statutes are fascinating, not everyone can see how those things affect their lives. Some people don’t have a visceral reaction when they hear about net neutrality or the end of the PSTN.
We wanted to change that, so we teamed up with Eyebeam, an art and technology center in New York, to create an artist residency program.
The goal of the artist residency is to make any one of our policy issues more compelling to the public. We are looking for someone (or a group of someones) who can use the technology that we advocate for – think open hardware and 3D printing – to make sense of the issues we work on.
The project is open to the creativity of the artist – anything from a fandango to an installation. The residency itself will run from September through February, with a flexible start date.
So please apply and spread the word!
