Art Center College of Design Graduate Media Design Program (MDP) 2010 Ideas-in-the-Making Summer Research

Residency Call For Proposals

made up
Submission Deadline: March 23, 2010
This call welcomes designers, filmmakers, architects, scholars, researchers, and artists to submit proposals for design-driven research projects to be conducted in Summer 2010 in residence in the Graduate Media Design Program studio. We are looking for projects that are motivated by research questions and that use design/ making as a mode of inquiry. We are particularly interested in projects that address the theme “made up” which explores the role of fiction in design. The residency is open from May 2 – August 27, 2010 and includes project space within the MDP studio—a former supersonic wind tunnel renovated by Daly Genik—on the south campus of Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Each researcher will get to work with a team of between 2–5 graduate student research interns (media designers/design researchers). Candidates will receive a $5,000 stipend and a $5,000 budget for materials and support along with access to the College’s shops and production facilities ranging from letterpress to video editing to rapid prototyping. The results of the research residency—which may assume a variety of forms—will be exhibited as part of the MDP’s first annual Ideas-in-the-Making Exhibition in the south campus’ 3,000 sq. ft., 40 ft. high Windtunnel Gallery. The project will eventually be published and the researcher will be expected to deliver a research report.
