Through group-oriented workshops participants will be introduced to basic woodworking skills and timber frame construction methods. The outcome of this residency is to collaboratively build a temporary pavilion for the Gibraltar Point grounds.

This program is open to anyone with in interest in building as a form of expression and inquiry, or simply as a learning objective. We also invite individuals who explore social engagement as an art form. Our residency activities will be experimental, intuitive and collaborative.

Accommodation: Private Bedroom & Shared Studio
Facilitator: Liz Lessner
Deadline for Applications: December 1, 2017

This two-week residency is an introduction to wearable and ‘soft’ computing as a vehicle for artistic engagement with the fields of art, design, technology, and time-based media.

The focus of this residency is to introduce artists and creative thinkers to technological skills that will allow them to incorporate responsiveness, computation, and electromagnetic materials into their work.

Learn how to sense presence and have objects respond, use the non-linear power of computer controlled algorithms to enhance user interaction, and incorporate responsive elements like light and sound into objects and installations.

We will explore topics of privacy, surveillance, mediated reality, user interaction, feedback and phenomenological experience. Discussions and presentations will focus on the relationships between the body, technology, fashion, social interactions, and the environment.

Guest Instructors from InterAccess Gallery will also be on hand for special seminar days and studio visits.

Material requirements for the residency include a micro-controller like Flora or Lilypad conductive thread, LEDs, photo-resistors, and other desired electronic components.

You may bring your own supplies or pre-order kits from the facilitator at a cost of $45 CDN

Kits include:
A flora microcontroller, A micro b usb cable, JST plug (for your battery), LEDs, RGB LED,
Photo-resistor, Conductive Thread, Assorted Needles, Conductive Snaps.
