The artists' collective Quadrature, consisting of the members Jan Bernstein, Sebastian Neitsch and former fellow Juliane Götz, are the recipients of this year's ESO-residency. The residency was advertised by the European Digital Art & Science Network, an international initiative in cooperation with seven artistic and cultural institutions, CERN and the ESO (European Southern Observatory). Its aim is to connect scientific topics with creative and innovative approaches used in digital art.
In the next few months, the three artists will be travelling to Chile and spend several weeks at the ESO. Subsequently, they will be staying at the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz, Austria, where they will be working on a sepcific project. The result of the residency will be presented for the first time at the Ars Electronica Festival 2016, which takes place from Thursday, September 8, 2016 to Monday, September 12, 2016 in Linz.
