Brief Description

Inspired by a myriad of art/science collaborations including programs at NASA, Xerox, SETI, and Bell Labs, the Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computational Science & Engineering, BU Spark, and the BU Arts Initiative are seeking an artist in residence for a period of four months who will work with our students, faculty, and the community to explore and inspire computational based art and create art that explores, as John Seely Brown (former chief scientist at Xerox) put it, new ideas, new ways of thinking, new modes of seeing and new contexts for doing.” This residency will be deeply immersive in process with student and faculty, providing opportunities for both to explore the creative process with and around computational science.
