Xenoform Labs Residency Program
Created by Scott Kildall
Hello and Who I am
My name is Scott Kildall and I'm a new media** artist who is running a residency program in San Francisco.
I'm looking for feedback and thoughts, so feel free to contact me!
** new media is a recognized discipline of art, like painting or sculpture. A shorthand for it might be art + technology with criticality. So, not just blinky blinky but rather digging into more conceptually meaty or socially engaged practices
What it is
Xenoform Labs provides an artist-in-residency program for visiting new media artists to develop experimental work and show their prototypes and ideas to artists, thinkers, curators and writers in the San Francisco area.
And what exatly is an artist-in-residency program?
Generally speaking, artist-in-residence programs exist to invite artists but also curators, writers and others to reside within the premises of an institution.
The idea is to give artists a chance to have focused worktime outside of their own enviroment. Shake loose ideas. Break patterns. Come up with something new.
The Key Challenge
And what I want to do here is to figure out a way to make the process be open — how do artists source their creativity? What is the process by which artists make their work. I'd like to shatter the myth of the genius and instead think about the conditions for imaginative possibilities.
This is where I'd love to get your thoughts and where I could use your insights.
