How does data become information that we can read? What role do aesthetics play in the politics of viewership? How can papyrus scrolls, musical scores, historical postcards and other treasures buried in the ONB Labs archives be explored artistically and in a way that is meaningful to our contemporary moment of unrest? ONB Labs is pleased to announce our web residency programme, inviting artists to address these questions. Artists from all levels of experience, who are interested in mining the ONB Lab’s historical archives, are encouraged to apply to this four-week web residency. This opportunity aims to engage critically and creatively with data sets from the ONB Labs, culminating in a browser-based work that will be exhibited online. Artistic approaches of all formats, whether they might be digital, physical, sculptural, poetic or conceptual are encouraged; For more information see: https://labs.onb.ac.at/en/web-residency/
