As the realm of media art and design grew increasingly obsessed with everything digital and virtual, V2_’s late director and cofounder, Alex Adriaansens, became fascinated by the interaction between matter and media. In memory of his strong focus on artists and designers as the alchemists of our time, V2_ is seeking artistic and design research projects that explore the ways in which media technology, its products and their reception, are informed by materiality.
The Alex Adriaansens Residency provides a Dutch or international artist or designer the possibility to conduct a research project focusing on the material basis and aesthetics of our digital culture. The recipient will work in partnership with V2_ over the span of one year.
