On Monday January 27th, the Linden Endowment for the Arts announced the successful applicants for the 6th round of the LEA’s Artist-in-Residence (AIR) programme.
They are: Solkide Auer, Canary Beck, Tyrehl Byk, Glyph Graves, Xineohp Guisse, Mac Kanashimi, Livio Korobase, Yooma Mayo, Mimesis Monday, Maya Paris, Tomm Pye, SodaGnome Resident, Tansee Resident, TheRealKarenEliot Resident, Sniper Siemens, Storm Septimus, Pixels Sideways, Nexuno Thespian, Lorin Tone and Eupalinos Ugajin.
The LEA received over 40 applications, and those selected were viewed as presenting “truly outstanding proposals that represent a diverse range of virtual art.”
The successful applicants will each be allocated a full region within the LEA for a 6-month period. They have up to four months to prepare their projects, which range from full-sim immersions, to innovative builds geared specifically for multimedia works such as sound and machinima. Each installation must be open for a minimum of two months of the 6-month allocation, and it is expected that some will be open in advance of the four-month build deadline. All exhibits must be open to the public by the end of May 2014 at the latest.
All openings will, as usual, be announced in the LEA blog.
