Each season of the program we support one resident for a 16-week cycle. We are delighted to have worked with influential artists working on a range of important contemporary issues.
As residents progress through their projects week by week, updates are posted to the blog. At the completion of each residency, the project is added to the projects archive, which documents activity and any outcomes.

Heather Dewey-Hagborg is an artist and educator who has shown work internationally at venues including Ars Electronica and MOMA PS1.

The founders of the Cyborg Foundation are Neil Harbisson and Moon Ribas, both artists who have augmented their bodies with permanent new sensory organs.
The mission of the Cyborg Foundation is to help humans become cyborgs, to promote the use of cybernetics as part of the human body and to defend cyborg rights. The foundation believes that some cybernetic extensions should be treated as body parts, not as devices.
