((((( AIRtime free103point9 Artist Residency Program )))))OPEN CALL:free103point9 AIRtime residency applications due April 1, 2007Do you, or would you like to use the airwaves in your work?Coined by free103point9, “Transmission Arts” is defined as aconceptual umbrella that unites a community of artists and audiencesinterested in transmission ideas and tools utilizing the electromagnetic spectrum for creative expression. Transmissionpractices harness, occupy and/or respond to the airwaves thatsurround us. There is an inherent “liveness” to this work.In a performance-based setting, audience members are newlyengaged, becoming participants rather than passive viewers andlisteners. Installation or sculptural transmission works are oftendependant on the present, reacting to whatever occupies thesurrounding frequencies in a single instance, or changingthat information by adding new signals to the spectral environment. The AIRtime workspace residency program at Wave Farmprovides media artists with valuable space, physical andintellectual, to concentrate on new transmission works andconduct important research about the genre using free103point9′sresource library and equipment holdings. The AIRtime program serves artists by providing space for researchand creation with technical support, and audiences through thepresentation of works developed during AIRtime in conjunctionwith free103point9′s exhibition program PETS.
