Residency / workshop in Madeira Island
Where some art presents itself as concepts, process or statements, this residency aims to cultivate art which ultimately is about the artistic product and how it is perceived by our senses - how colours, sounds, shapes, motions, ideas and textures may be structured within time and space to form a composition. Secondly, the residency has a focus on digital tools and media and on helping artists develop ideas and skills for using computer software for working with compositions.
To support collaboration and the exchange of ideas and knowledge the residency is arranged as an informal workshop where participants can interact freely or choose to retreat if necessary. Our villa on Madeira Island provides the pleasant and tranquil surroundings. To initiate discussions the participants are invited to prepare a small presentation about their work and methods.
Having a duration of between 2 and 4 weeks, the residency will take place some time later this year (2012) and involve 4 to 7 artists (/engineers/researchers). The exact timing will depend on the artists' availability but we wish to start the residency as soon as possible. If you are interested in joining please let us know about your work and your availability. For more information and updates please connect to us on Facebook (facebook.com/pedrasina).
