Teaming up with The New York Public Library!
We were blown away by the response to the Artist in Residence program — over 300 artists applied! Look out for the selection announcement this week.
After such an amazing response, we're excited to announce that we're teaming up with the wonderful folks at NYPL Labs to sponsor our next Artist in Residence!
The New York Public Library Labs x Electric Objects Net Artist in Residence
As the Library continues to digitize materials and open up new data sets, there is a dazzling range of digital historical content with which to play and make. For this residency, we're asking applicants to make use of materials from NYPL's Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division.
Participating artists will have access to:
- 20,000+ historical maps, atlases, and other geographic documents and/or
- 19th century city data (old NYC building footprints, addresses, residential & business info)
Artists will also receive a cash stipend, an EO1 developer kit, dedicated work space at the Library, and access to curators, librarians, and library technologists.
Completed works will be hosted online by NYPL and exhibited on-site at 42nd Street powered by EO1.
p.s. Only 3 days left in the campaign! Please help us finish strong by spreading the word!
