Inspired by Artist in Residence Programs
This concept is inspired by “Artist in Residence” programs such as those at Microsoft Research which explore areas such as AI, embedded sensor technologies, emotion / affective computing, or computer vision; or those at V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum) where they focus on collaborations with scholars, artists, designers and makers to explore new ways of “studying, displaying and accessibly storing its collections.”.
