Artist Residency in the U.S.


New York City
Mission Eyebeam provides space and support for a community of diverse, justice-driven artists. The Eyebeam residency is a prestigious award for those creating work which engages technology and society, through art.

Overview Residents’ projects are experimental and wildly interdisciplinary, often existing outside of more traditional structures in the fields of both art and technology. Work generated by artists during their residency—whether art, research, code, or machines—are to be made open source and accessible to the public through means like teaching tools, open events, public repositories, and documentation.

Eyebeam is proud to support those “who recognize the challenge of re-contextualizing technology as mediums of experience.” For the purpose of this residency, this refers to a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary creative thinkers and practitioners. If your process is exploratory, creative, and is meaningfully engaged with technology as it impacts society, you likely fall under this broad definition and are encouraged to apply.
