We've been really inspired by the response to the Kickstarter campaign from the artist community, and want to find a way to encourage experimentation with Electric Objects.

EO1 might be an interesting combination of hardware and software, but it’s not much more than that without a strong community of artists and developers who see it as a compelling platform for creative expression, and a new way to connect with humans.

So today we’re announcing the beta of our Artist in Residence program. This is an experiment, an exploration into the creative and distributive potential of a new platform.

The purpose of this beta program is to encourage artists and developers to create work with EO1 in mind. Nothing that comes out of this program will be exclusive to EO1, we only ask that you consider it in your creative process, and think of it as a primary context for presentation.

We’ll select 10 artists for this beta group. If it goes well, we’ll do it again! Questions? Email artists@electricobjects.com.

Selected artists will receive:

  • EO Prototype Kit (approx. $400) 
  • $500 stipend 
  • Full rights to re-sell / re-share / re-display any work produced 
  • 1:1 time with Jacob Bijani, who leads the Electric Objects development team

If you're interested, please apply today! Applications are due July 27th @ Midnight EST.
