MindSpaces 1st Open Call – Art driven adaptive outdoors and indoors design
Submission Deadline: 4/7/2019

MindSpaces is looking for artists to develop, implement and assess art installations, in collaboration with researchers, in order to highlight the cultural significance of urban sustainability issues, as well as to offer potentially paradigm-shifting designs of indoor work and living environments.

MindSpaces is a 3-year research project financed by the European Commission STARTS/Lighthouse projects started on Jan 1th 2019. To encourage the collaboration of research projects and artists, STARTS funds STARTS residencies of artists in technology institutions and of scientists and technologists in the studio of artists. In this project, artists, scientists, architects, engineers and technology experts closely collaborate under a novel working model scheme to propose innovative designs to address societal challenges faced by cities as they expand, and the evolving needs in functionality and emotional resonance of modern-day workplace and housing interiors. Art has the capacity to transcend established theoretical and conceptual frames and act in cross-disciplinary ways, as it provides space for what is called as “lateral” thinking, that is to address issues with an ‘out of the box’ approach.

The residency is open to artists of all types and experience, but preference will be given to those whose practices have previously engaged with science, emerging technologies, and/or interactive installations, AR/VR installations, architectural design and art in public spaces. Successful applicants will receive a lump sum of 30-60.000euro max for duration of min 6 to max 18 Moths that includes travel and material budgets.

The project proposed by the applicants should be connected with one of the following use cases of the MindSpaces project.

  • Outdoors urban environment
  • Inspiring Workplaces
  • Emotionally-sensitive functional interior design
