Ars Bioarctica Residency 2015 â Open Call

Application deadline 14th November 2014

Since 2010 the Finnish Society of Bioart is organizing the ARS
BIOARCTICA RESIDENCY PROGRAM together with the KilpisjÃrvi Biological
Station of the University of Helsinki in the sub-Arctic Lapland.

Until now more then 50 artists, scientists, and practitioners have been
developing work at the Station - including Marko Peljhan and Matthew
Biedermann from the Arctic Perspective Initiative, Oron Catts from Symbiotica
or sound poet AGF.

The residency takes place in the facilities of the KilpisjÃrvi
Biological Station of the Univeristy of Helsinki. It provides the
residents with a combined living and working environment, a basic 
laboratory, internet connection and sauna. 

The KilpisjÃrvi Biological Station offers to the residents the same
possibilities and infrastructure as its scientists and staff. This
includes access to scientific equipment, laboratory facilities, the
library and seminar room as well as the usage of field equipment. A
dedicated contact person in KilpisjÃrvi will familiarize residents with
the local environment and customs.

The emphasis of the residency is on the Arctic environment, art&science
collaboration and is open for artists, scientists and interdisciplinary
research teams.

Applications have to include:

	* a completed application form available via
        * a cv
        * a work plan

Travel to and within Finland to KilpisjÃrvi  as well as the accommodation
at the Station have to be covered by the applicant. The Finnish
Society of Bioart will assist with the funding process if wished.

The evaluation of the applications emphasizes the quality of the
proposal, its interaction of art&science, its artistic and scientific
significance, the projects relation to the themes of Ars Bioarctica and
its feasibility to be carried out at the KilpisjÃrvi Biological Station
in the given time.
