Dates: July 10-August 10, 2017

From 3D capture and output to coding and photogrammetry, the future of photographic imagery presents new challenges and exciting possibilities for lens-based artists. This unique studio residency is specifically designed for serious artists who wish to explore that potential. In addition to the creation of personal work, residents will participate in several intensive workshops introducing them to the basics of 3D capture and output, as well as coding for artists. Each week there will be studio visits and critiques by faculty and guest critics, as well as lectures and screenings. Artists will be encouraged and supported in their efforts to develop their work both conceptually and aesthetically, and introduced to new tools to achieve those goals.

All residents will be given a personal workspace and have full access to the printing and studio facilities at the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department, including studio equipment, digital imaging and output centers. Residents also have access to SVA's Visible Futures Lab, a state-of-the-art fabrication studio, which offers a wide range of tools including 3D printers and capture devices.

Studio facilities in the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department are available from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm daily, and overnight stays are allowed with entry to the building prior to 11:00 pm.

Prerequisite: Participants must have completed a minimum of two years of college and demonstrate a fluency in the photographic medium.
