Learning and the New Ecology of Things
project proposal / application
Individual candidates will receive a $5,000 stipend. Researchers can apply as a team of two, eligible for a stipend of $3,500 each.
In addition, there is a $5,000 budget for each research project to cover materials, rentals, personnel and other project costs.
Students who are eligible to apply for a research internship have completed at least one year of graduate school. Our students are media designers from varied backgrounds. Skills/experience may include: communication design, video, motion graphics, environmental media, physical computing prototyping, rapid prototyping, programming, and research and writing. Researchers will have the opportunity to review intern applications and may request interviews before selecting interns.
The Media Design Program – located on the Daly Genik designed South Campus alongside the Graduate Fine Art department – will provide dedicated project space. Over the summer the Wind Tunnel will be home to at least one other research team, a post-graduate research fellow, and the MDP research faculty.
Researchers will have access within the MDP studio to a digital shop, desktop and laptop computers, a digital video editing bay, recording equipment, color printers and plotters, projectors and miscellaneous digital devices from Chumbies to a multi-touch table. Researchers will also have access to the the College Library, the Color, Materials, and Trends Laboratory, and campus workshops for wood, metal, rapid prototyping, letterpress printing, screenprinting, and more.
Art Center will not pay for housing or travel to/from Art Center. However we can recommend resources to locate short-term housing and transportation. The South Campus is walking distance to good housing options and shopping. It is adjacent to the MTA Gold Line which provides easy access to Chinatown, Koreatown, and downtown L.A. There is bus service between the South Campus and the main, Hillside Campus.
We recommend that researchers travelling from other cities, and particularly from other countries, plan to arrive 1-2 weeks prior to the start of the residency in order to allow enough time for get situated.
