FORCES OF NATURE
“Forces of Nature” is an invitation to digital artists to embark on a transformative artistic residency programme that explores the dynamic interplay between the environment and technology. Through this unique opportunity, we aim to inspire, inform, and provoke thoughtful and intentional conversations around a sustainable future. Join us on a powerful journey as we merge forces of the natural and digital worlds.
This residency programme invites digital artists to delve deep into the theme of “Forces of Nature,” and showcase your digital art as an influential tool for advocacy and awareness.
Inspire action, mobilise communities, and spark conversations about the need to harmonise humanity and the environment we inhabit.
“Forces of Nature” is a theme that encompasses a wide spectrum of compelling ideas, including but not limited to:
- Sustainable Futures: Envision a world where human activities coexist harmoniously with nature, reimagining our relationship with the environment.
- Biodiversity and Conservation: Celebrate the beauty and diversity of life on Earth, advocating for the protection and conservation of endangered species.
- Nature’s Healing Power: Explore the therapeutic and rejuvenating aspects of nature. Reflect on how a reconnection with the natural world can heal and restore the human spirit and our health and well-being, in ways both seen and unseen.
As a digital artist in residence, you will have the opportunity to experiment with various digital mediums, including but not limited to:
- Digital painting and illustration
- 2D and 3D animation
- Augmented reality (AR)
- Interactive installations
- Data visualisation
- Digital storytelling
This programme encourages all digital artists to push the boundaries of their creativity and engage with cutting-edge technologies to convey their messages effectively.
The “Forces of Nature” mission is to foster a vibrant community of innovative digital artists who use their talents to raise awareness, inspire action, and provoke active thought around sustainability and a more harmonious future. The residency will culminate in a public exhibition of your artworks, to further the impact of your unique artistic language, allowing you to share your vision and artworks with a global audience.
