Studio Residencies 2012

A residency programme, hosted at Watershed's Pervasive Media Studio, offering artists the rare opportunity to experiment with new technologies within the arts, creating a safe space to take risks and explore cutting edge ideas.

Sep 2012 - Jan 2013

Watershed’s Studio Residencies enable artists to explore cutting edge ideas at the juncture of art, culture and new technologies. Residencies are hosted at the Pervasive Media Studio and last for three to four months. During that time artists receive research, development and production support for their projects.

The residency programme offers artists the rare opportunity to experiment with new technologies within the arts, without the pressure to neccessarily create an end product, creating a safe space to take risks.  The artists are able to develop new cultural experiences; pushing the boundary of current artistic, market and audience expectations.

Between October 2012 and January 2013 Geiger-Müller Sound System - the collective name for writer, performer and composer Timothy X Atack and musician, sound artist and instrument designer MrUnderwood - were chosen for a Studio Residency to collaboratively develop a finite kinetic choir. Artists Ben Sadler and Phil Duckworth of Juneau Projects also received a commission to investigate the artistic possibilities of collaborating with ‘thinking’ machines.

Studio Residencies are supported by Arts Council England.
