„raum:online artist residencies_the point of view of design“
RAUM, a project by Terceiro Direito, is a platform that hosts artistic residencies online that are the result of proposals created specifically for the platform. It involves several artistic and cultural agents, from artists to art schools, from publishing projects to museums. Focused on contemporary artistic creation and the specificities of the online environment, it seeks to engage and develop a creative and critical production and reflection on art within the specificities of the digital environment.
v-a studio, represented by its members João Martins, João Simões and João Sousa, will present the outcome of their residency “Variations on Strings” where they explored a non-linear and infinite narrative to create several random sentences from fragments of three selected books. Besides presenting the project conceived for the online platform, v-a studio, being the graphic designers and web developers of the platform, will talk about the process of conceiving the online residencies and the new possibilities that can emerge from a collaboration between all the agents: the curator, the artist and the graphic designers as a new agent in the creative process.
