MEET THE ARTISTS
The Tech is proud to work with Marpi and the Yves Peitzner Lab, who will be debuting experiences in April 2019 in our Reboot Reality exhibit.
WHAT WOULD YOU MAKE WITH A MAGIC TOOL BOX?
The Tech+Arts Incubator supports participatory digital art projects that are produced in collaboration with some of the world's most innovative tech companies.
The Tech+Arts Incubator is made possible by the Knight Foundation.
ENVISION + SCALE
The Tech+Arts Incubator explores artistic applications of emerging technologies. Through its exhibits and R&D gallery, we:
CONNECT artists with Silicon Valley technology companies.
CREATE transformative digital art experiences.
EXTEND digital art to our visitors and audiences around the world.
FOCUS + PARTNER
Proposals must fall into one of our focus areas and utilize one or more emerging technologies: immersive tech, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and adaptive sound.
1. Application is open to individuals and collectives located anywhere in the world.
2. The awarding of the grant will require meetings/interviews with applicants to discuss their proposals and establish detailed agreements.
3. The grants will be awarded only after definitive agreements are reached, and the amount and timing of the disbursement of funds will be determined by the nature of each project.
4. All artists will be required to execute a definitive agreement with The Tech (and, where applicable, third-party participants), which will set forth appropriate agreements with respect to, among other things, the scope and the duration of the project, required milestones, amount and timing of funding, the involvement of third parties, intellectual property, licensing, and ownership.
5. Finalists will be required for on-site visits to The Tech at least twice, at the beginning of the process and for the final installation.
A group of international advisors and curators will review all applications. The final selection will be made in consultation with The Tech's curatorial and program staff according to the following:
1. Clear and compelling vision and purpose.
2. Original and timely idea.
3. User-centered, participatory experience.
4. Innovative approach to or use of technology.
5. Strong grasp of project feasibility and path to success.
6. Willingness to refine the project in collaboration with the technology company and The Tech's staff.
7. Demonstrated track record of previous work.
8. Does the project suggest models, methods, and/or data that may be of interest to other artists, technologists or cultural institutions?
9. We are interested in art for social good — projects that embrace the power of digital art to creatively tackle some of the most pressing issues facing our society today.
