The project Wild Bits is an exhibition concept that proposes a temporary art park in the wilderness. The exhibition looks for points of contact between people, technology and nature. The technological art installations consisting of sounds, lights, texts, sculptures or their online counterparts are placed in natural spaces like forests, fields, swamps and lakes.
With this open call Maajaam is seeking proposals for installations, interventions or processes to be installed/performed in landscapes spread out around Maajaam that explore the human condition in a contemporary technological society. The artworks should withstand outdoor conditions.
Maajaam is situated in an old farmhouse, but is nonetheless operated as a media art experimentation residency.
The residency will take place in the summer of 2022. The residency lasts for 3 weeks. The produced works will remain in Maajaam and will be displayed on satellite exhibitions in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania until 2025.
Will be selected three to five projects for the 2022 residency period, open to all artists from around the world. Selected projects receive an artist fee of €2000 and a travel grant. The average budget per project is €5000.
