The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) are pleased to announce the Semester Artist/Designer in Residence. The goal of this artist/designer in residence is to bring MICA and JHU faculty together to collaborate and explore ways to represent, visualize, and/or interpret HEMI research. Visual representations of HEMI research can include, but are not limited to:
- Data visualization
- Interpretation, translation, and/or effective communication of large amounts of data
- Response to research regarding HEMI ‘extreme’ events, collaborations, interdependent systems through:
- Storyboarding and narrative
- Graphic Design and graphics
- Interactive arts or products
- Information visualization
- Sculptural forms or materials
The semester in residence is expected to take place in either the fall semester from late August – December 2018 or
the spring semester from January – May 2019.
Current MICA full-time faculty and part-time faculty who have taught nine credits per academic year for the past two consecutive years are eligible to apply for this semester in residence.
The total budget request for this semester in residence may not exceed $15,000. The semester in residence (and its fee) is based on an assumption that this commitment is part-time and equivalent to one day of work per week for the semester. Budget line items can include, but are not limited to: MICA faculty compensation, materials, supplies, course release/replacement costs, etc. It is expected that all artist/designer work will be performed by the selected MICA faculty member. The final budget is subject to negotiations between MICA and JHU.
