Artists, especially those with digital skills, can now apply for a two-week residency with the European Southern Observatory, the world's leading ground-based astronomical observatory.

The aim of the call is to link up the scientific exploits and ideas of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, and the European Southern Observatory with digital art.

Individuals interested in taking part will need to submit:

  • a testimonial presenting themselves and how their residency would inspire new work
  • an outline of a possible concept or idea for the European Southern Observatory
  • a draft production plan with costings and a timeline
  • a portfolio of work showcasing the talent of the artist

The call is open until 10/01/2016, and submissions should be made via the online application form on the Ars Electronica website.

Winners will receive a residency at ESO in Chile, as well as accommodation, an artist fee of €3,000, and some travel costs, and their work will be presented at the Ars Electronica Festival in 2016.

The call has been published by Ars Electronica as part of its "European Digital Art and Science Network"; more information is available on the Ars Electronica website.
