Liminal Screen


The Banff Centre for the Arts in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Canada is world-renowned as a place where artists retreat to create and think. For over 70 years this very special place has been catalysing creativity and developing leaders in the arts — a track record few places in the world can lay claim to.

I’ve been invited to be a peer advisor for the upcoming Liminal Screen co-production residency at the Banff Centre, within the Banff New Media Institute. I wanted to post the opportunity here to entice ambitious artists from around the world who are engaged with screen-based practices to apply.

This residency will “…focus its inquiry on the transitions between screen and life, as the screen reinforces its central position as an ubiquitous communications portal, data visualization surface, and frame on an ever more meditated world. Practitioners from all walks of screen-based practice are encouraged to apply to the program. We are particularly interested in practice that extends its investigation of the screen out into other media or networks (biological, philosophical, social, and other systems) and explores the spaces and relationships between screen, mind, and hard reality.”

Scholarships and financial aid are available. Apply via the Banff Centre website, deadline September 25, 2009.
