We are happy to announce that we have subnetAIRs 2017. Thank you very much for the many applications we have received for 2017. We are very excited about the continuously increasing quality and internationalisation. It is a pity that we only have three slots. So it is a pleasure to announce that the city of Salzburg will enable us  to offer an extra slot for December 2017, more soon.

The subnetAIR jury has chosen three projects from different fields of material art research that fulfill our expectations of playful exploration. Each future resident represents an understanding of material in its very own different form.

One sophisticated look at bioengineering and performance: Lucie Strecker
One eerie wearable approach to the fields of the uncanny valley: Young Suk Lee
And one acoustic exploration of the relation between bodies and instruments: Anthony Rayzhekov

The next subnetAIR call will happen in Spring 2017 on subnet.at

subnetAIR – Partner:
Since 2016 the Center for Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at the University of Salzburg joined forces with subnetAIR. subnetAIRs can freely access the HCI infrastructure. The HCI also provides subnetAIRs with a lively environment filled with technology-enthusiasts, critical thinkers, exotic human-machine interfaces and plenty of gear and space to work on projects as well as present them to audiences, in the very city center.

About the Center for HCI:
The Center for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is an interdisciplinary research group within the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Salzburg. Established in 2005 as research unit at the former ICT&S Center, currently approx. 40 researchers study the interplay between humans and computers in order to enable desired interactions and explore desirable futures“ (Read more: hci.sbg.ac.at). subnetAIRs will have the great possibilty to use their faicilties and network with local researches.
