MÓNICA RIKIĆ WILL BE ARTIST IN RESIDENCE AT THE TECHNOLOGY, ART AND GAMES (TAG) RESEARCH CENTRE IN THE FRAMEWORK OF HEXAGRAM NETWORK’S PARTNERSHIP WITH THE EUROPEAN MEDIA ART PLATFORMS (EMAP) INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCIES PROGRAM.
Hexagram Network is pleased to welcome digital artist Mónica Rikić for an artist residency at the Technology, Art and Games (TAG) Research Center located at Concordia University’s Milieux Institute. From mid-August to mid-October, the artist from Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) will develop her new project entitled “Hipèrbole”. Through experimental thinking, creative coding and hand-crafted electronics, this project interrogates the field of machine learning as a cutting-edge artificial intelligence technique, and explores alternative artificial cognitive systems by bridging philosophy, algorithms and mechanics. During the residency, the Network will organize, in collaboration with TAG, opportunities to meet and show work in progress.
Mónica Rikić is also a student in the PhD program in Network and Information Technology at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Barcelona). Her practice focuses on creative coding and electronics, combining them with non-digital objects to create interactive projects, robotic installations and handcrafted electronic devices.
The EMAP residency program is enabled by the support of Creative Europe – Culture. The program offers residencies to artists, artist duos, collectives or other artistic collaborations in the fields of digital arts, media arts and bio-art. In 2023, EMAP extended its residency program to 15 European countries and to Quebec, represented by Hexagram Network as guest host organization.
The call for proposals for EMAP residency projects for 2024 is open until September 12, 2023. This year’s guest host organization is ISSS: Astronomy, Space Science, Space Exploration and Space Art at the House of Natural Fibres Foundation (HONF), in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
