Undergraduate Artist in Residency Opportunity
The Art Department, together with the Center for Science and Justice and OpenLab, is offering an undergraduate artist in residency position to students at UCSC. The position is for three consecutive quarters starting this Winter 2014. The artist in resident will have the opportunity to produce three pieces of original artwork with Art Department Professors, Jennifer Parker (winter ‘14a) and Kate O’Riordan (Spring
‘14). Artworks created should be inspired by the aims, events and activities of the Center and will be granted material fees of $300 for printing in the digital imaging lab in the Digital Arts Research Center and $300 for project materials and supplies. In addition to developing artwork the artist in resident will be expected to attend Center events and to meet with the Center director and fellows on a regular basis throughout the
residency. The Center director will also mentor the student. The work produced during the residency will be exhibited in the Center for Science and Justice and represented on their website with the possibility of circulating further via posters, flyers and announcements connected to their work. While the artwork can take any form, high quality visual images of the work will be required in addition to any site- specific, time-based, performance, interactive or processual work. One piece of work should be suitable to remain on semi-permanent display in the Center. It is a condition of
the residency that this will remain on loan to the Center for three years. The artist in resident will receive two credits as an independent study per quarter; be a named affiliation; exhibit work at the Center and its events; have their digital arts lab fees paid + material costs (overall total of $300), and a successful student will receive letters of recommendation from the supervisors in the Art Department and the mentors in the Center for Science and Justice. Students should apply directly to Jennifer Parker: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible with a letter of application indicating why you would be a strong candidate, together with two examples of previous work and a referee.
