Round Three AIRs Announced!

Eupalinos Ugajin's [Kou!] will return to the LEA in an expanded version with new collaborations.

The LEA is pleased to announce the third round of Artists-in-Residence, who will receive a full sim for six months on which to create and display their proposed projects:

The LEA received nearly 50 high-quality applications, and it was a difficult decision, but those selected submitted truly outstanding proposals that represent a diverse range of virtual art. While a handful are artists returning for a second round, the majority will be exhibiting at the LEA for the first time. Projects range from full-sim immersions, to augmented reality installations, to innovative builds geared specifically for multimedia works such as sound and machinima projects.

Artists will have up to four months to build their projects (though many have suggested they will be completed sooner), leaving a full two months for public exploration of the completed works. Keep an eye on this blog for announcements of exhibit openings and related special events.

The previous two rounds of LEA land grant artists-in-residence have resulted in some truly exceptional works, and we anticipate this next group to be just as fantastic. Congratulations to all the artists, we can't wait to see your vision!
