Although art has been around for as long as humanity has, one of its defining qualities is that it has inevitably addressed the essence of its time. As more materials become available artists have often been some of the first to grapple with the obscure and liminal, twisting it into the inevitable stream of life.

The digital format allows for another way of envisioning, sculpting and presenting an artwork. With these novel tools come new parameters and as the setting for receiving the work changes significantly our attunement is also destined to undergo a powerful perceptual shift.

The magic happens in the space between the art and the viewer. All else is destined to change. Let us explore the new horizons of possibility that our time offers us and embrace the tools that are at our disposal today.

Artigit'l online residency is aimed at a wide spectrum of artists as well as those individuals working within the innovative digital realm. Today the art and digital worlds are inherently intertwined and are rapidly expanding through a variety of formats that encompass a diverse range of technologies and innovations.

The ubiquitous use of personal cameras and the daily generation of video content has led to a gigantic shift within the digital visual landscape. There is still a significant gap to be bridged between the vision of the artist and the vast possibilities of the digital realm. We wish to enable these visions to boldly cross boundaries and inspire to create new works through our online program.

Artigit'l online residency fascilitates the cross-pollination of ideas between individuals of diverse backgrounds and assists the inception of new artworks through the use of a wide variety of cutting edge tools and mediums including AI, AR/VR, 3D printing and others.

Сan you briefly describe how the program will go ?
Sure! Within the first two weeks you will receive relevant and up-to-date information about art, technology and the recent developments within any new trends. Next, we will explore design thinking and idea generation tools and together with your new team you will be required to put them into practice. In the fourth week, you and your team with the help of specialists will begin working out the seedlings of your creative ideas. Master classes will be combined together with expert sessions. Some of our experts will give feedback on your projects. It is fine for your ideas to evolve and change. At the end of the program you will receive coaching to help you with your pitch. The outcome of the work will be presented in the two showcase days at the end of the program.
How much does the residency cost?
The online residency program is completely free. The focus is on exploration of ideas, experimentation and the development of talent. The ratio is roughly ten applicants to a place and we would therefore ask you to answer the questions in as much detail as possible and provide any past examples of work that you think are relevant to your application.
If I am an artist, do I need a preconceived idea of an art project in order to be selected for the program? If I am a programmer, do I need a specialist knowledge of art or graphics to be selected for the program?
You do not need to come with a ready idea. The ideation process within the program will help you explore the options. You and your chosen team will collaboratively decide on the direction to pursue. If you are a programmer, no prior knowledge of graphics or specialist art skills are necessary.
