The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine &Society (CSTMS) is initiating an artist-in-residence program that will focus on nurturing art/technology/science/engineering exchanges at UC Berkeley, in the Bay Area, and across the region. The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine & Society is a research unit at UC Berkeley dedicated promoting rigorous interdisciplinary research based on the conviction that the pressing problems of our time are simultaneously scientific and social, technological and political, ethical and economic.
The Art+Science in Residence program will host artists by invitation drawn to collaboration, interested in interdisciplinary art, science and technological dialogue, and open to developing new working methods and research techniques.
While the Center allows room for variance, residencies typically unfold over two years and include both an exploratory and project-development phase.
The program will open with a pilot residency in Fall 2017 featuring the Nordic artists Bull.Miletic: Synne T. Bull and Dragan Miletic. The artists create award winning film- and video-based installations that link the mediating effect of cinema with urban spaces and invent or repurpose recording techniques and projection mechanisms.
