Deepfakes & Synthetic Media at ThoughtWorksDEADLINE:5 March 2020
ThoughtWorks, a global software consultancy with an arts residency based in New York City seeks an artist/technologist who works in their art practice with issues of synthetic media and deepfakes.
The artist does not need to be an expert in machine learning or programming, but it is helpful if the artist has a basic understanding and some level of experience in or familiarity with visual, sonic and algorithmic technologies. A network of interested or supportive partners would also be a big plus.
ThoughtWorks will provide a work space, facilitation in midtown Manhattan, and access to guides and consultants, as well as appropriate resources as the project progresses. This sixteen week residency runs from May 4 to August 21, 2020, and artists should be available to work from ThoughtWorks in New York during this time. The residency comes with a stipend of USD $11,000, and assistance, if necessary in supplying a letter of intent to any external funding agencies that might facilitate with the residency.
The residency does not provide housing or work visas, and is for the artist only.
