Eyebeam is a non-profit arts and technology center based in New York City. Their building is situated in the art gallery district of Chelsea in Manhattan and the people there are very cool.
The fellowships they offer is sort of like a Fabrica borsisti: it is 11 months long, you are to collaborate on a creative project, and you are paid. It is unlike Fabrica in that: 1 you’re in New York City (not Treviso!), 2 they do not provide transportation or accommodation, 3 you are expected to work 4 days a week, 4 you are paid $30,000 USD. And did I say New York City? All kinds of great things come with being in New York City.
From their website:
Eyebeam is currently calling for Fellowship applications in all three of our lab environments. The application deadline is Aug. 14 at 12pm EST. Please read all Fellowship opportunities thoroughly before selecting the Fellowship for which you would like to apply.
Fellowships will be offered in the R&D OpenLab, the Production Lab and for the first time, in the Education Lab.
Up to six Fellowships will be granted for 2006/07.
The focus of the Fellowships varies depending on the tools and skills available and the creative objectives and philosophy of each Lab.
For all of the Fellowships we are seeking applications from artists, hackers, designers, engineers and creative technologists to come to Eyebeam for a year to undertake new research and develop new work. The ideal Fellow has experience working with and making innovative technological art projects and/or creative technology projects and has a passion for collaborative development. Fellows will bring this experience and working approach to their own independent projects, projects initiated by other resident artists or Fellows and projects conceived collaboratively during the Fellowship period.
