Eyebeam calling for Fellowship applications

"Eyebeam is currently calling for Fellowship applications in all three
of our lab environments.
The application deadline is Aug. 14 at 12pm EST. Up to six Fellowships
will be granted for 2006/07.
Fellowships will be offered in the R&D OpenLab, the Production Lab and
for the first time, in the Education Lab. 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 program duration is for 11 months, running from October to August.
Fellows are selected from an open call. International applicants are
welcome to apply although we do not have the resources to cover travel
and accommodation. We are happy to work with selected applicants, where
required, to help them to secure funds to cover these expenses.
Fellows receive a $30,000 stipend and health benefits during their stay.
They are able to take on additional external teaching or consulting
work, but there is an expectation that Fellows will be working at
Eyebeam a minimum of four days a week.
Themes for 2006/07 include (though will not be limited to):
- Energy, Technology and Sustainability;
- Urban research, urban interventions and media in public space.
Artists and creative technologists interested in these research areas
are particularly encouraged to apply for 2006/07 Fellowships.

Founded in 1997, Eyebeam is an art and technology center that provides a
fertile context and state-of-the-art tools for digital experimentation.
It is a lively incubator of creativity and thought, where artists and
technologists actively engage with the larger culture, addressing the
issues and concerns of our time. Eyebeam challenges convention,
celebrates the hack, educates the next generation, encourages
collaboration, freely offers its output to the community, and invites
the public to share in a spirit of openness: open source, open content
and open distribution.


Hmm - those $ 30.000,- might well be spent on housing alone in NYC, mightn't they?
