This residency will be deeply immersive in process with student and faculty, providing opportunities for both to explore the creative process with and around computational science.

  • Curate/Advise on an interdisciplinary student hackathon
  • Curate end of residency exhibit with new work (or work in progress) developed during the residency (could also include work of students and/or community on related themes/technology)
