Flight Patterns, 2005 – 2009, Aaron Koblin
The Victoria & Albert Museum Research Institute (VARI) is inviting nominations and applications for a yearlong embedded residency at the Museum for practitioners working with data as their medium. The appointed resident will be based at the V&A South Kensington’s Research Department on a part-time basis between October 2017 and October 2018.
Working with the multiple layers of collections information held in the V&A Museum, we would like the VARI Embedded Resident to make data-focused works that propose new points of entry, navigation and engagement with both collections and the information that we hold about them, eliciting meaningful forms of participation both onsite and offsite, and by the widest range of possible publics.
For full details on eligibility criteria and the application process: VARI-Embedded-Residency-Open-Call_
Deadline for applications: 7 July 2017
Interview date: 20 July 2017
We welcome nominations/applications from applicants based in or outside of London (in the UK and internationally) but please note that there is no separate budget for accommodation or travel. Nominators will be asked to submit a joint application with the nominated practitioner.
Enquiries should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
