MetaMaker Institute artist-in-residence

Deadline Friday 02 March 2018

Budget up to €30,000

We are seeking applications for a paid residency/commission taking place over 3-8 months, from an artist or experimental game designer who is interested in generative design spaces and new approaches to game design on mobile devices. This opportunity is in conjunction with the European Union's Vertigo Starts program, which funds artists' residencies that take place within the context of existing grant-funded ICT research projects. The MetaMakers Institute is located at Falmouth University's Penryn Campus, in Penryn, Cornwall, UK. Projects can propose a budget (including living expenses, travel, and equipment) of up to €30,000.

Part of our research has resulted in a technology platform, Gamika, that allows mobile games to be designed on the same mobile devices on which they're played, without any programming needed, through the use of parameterised, generative design spaces. A key design challenge in our project is to identify interesting parameterised spaces of games, and enjoyable interfaces for navigating them manually or semi-automatically. We are open to a wide range of proposals within the general theme of artistic work built with, or in the context of, our scientific work. The artist should have familiarity with game design, or a willingness to learn the essentials, but beyond that we are open to various types of collaboration. Possible directions could include: works that help visualise and/or communicate the concept of game design possibility spaces; interactive art pieces built using generative games; alternate or experimental approaches to mobile game design interfaces; design of radically different kinds of generative games, etc.
