Robotics Art Residency

Robotics Art Residency

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, May 15, 2021

The Robotics Art Residency organized by the GRASP Lab and the Weitzman School of Design is a four week residency program that will bring together faculty and students to explore the use of robotic technologies in addressing contemporary social, cultural, and environmental challenges.

Three artists, designers, engineers or creatives from any discipline will spend four weeks at the GRASP Lab at PERCH, during which each will develop a creative project with resources offered by PERCH and the Department of Fine Arts and Design.

This residency focuses on developing an artwork using robotic technologies. While robotics, in this case, is broadly defined, they are looking for creatives who would explore the use of robotic technologies in addressing contemporary social, cultural, and environmental challenges. These could be any type of physical system (kinetic or static) that can exhibit autonomous behavior.

The Robotics Art Residency encourages applicants who explore alternative forms of making, knowing, and decision-making associated with non-canonical/hierarchical, BIPOC, queer, feminist, and non-Western perspectives.

The residency requires a 30 hr/week commitment for 4 weeks and includes:

Stipend: $2,000
Materials and Fabrication budget: $1000
Housing: $1,500 for an apartment in West Philly (if housing is not needed, the funds could be used for travel or fabrication)
Total: $4,500
