Blast Theory Residency
Blast Theory is renowned internationally as one of the most adventurous artists’ groups using interactive media, creating groundbreaking new forms of performance and interactive art that mixes audiences across the internet, live performance and digital broadcasting. Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, the group’s work explores interactivity and the social and political aspects of technology. It confronts a media saturated world in which popular culture rules, using performance, installation, video, mobile and online technologies to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information that envelops us.
They are currently calling for applications for the 20 Wellington Road Residency Programme, for the period 2010 – 2011. Expressions of interest are invited from individuals working in the following fields:
– Pervasive & location based gaming & interactive media
– Mobile & portable devices in cultural & artistic practice

Residency applications are welcome from UK and international practitioners and should be for a minimum period of 3 weeks to maximum of 3 months. The Residency Programme is a new model of residency initiated and run by artists. It aims to provide a space for residents to research and develop new work in a supportive and collaborative environment. It provides an opportunity for Blast Theory artists and residents to work alongside each other exchanging information, experience, knowledge and working methodologies in an open and dynamic dialogue.
