Dear All,

Please see below the CFP
<https://www.immersivescholar.org/creative-residency-call> for a creative
residency at North Carolina State University Libraries as part of the
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded "Visualizing Digital Scholarship in
Libraries and Learning Spaces" grant.

Best,
Markus Wust
Digital Research and Scholarship Librarian
North Carolina State University Libraries
Raleigh, NC

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

*Overview*
Application Deadline: 8:00am EST, August 20th, 2018
Duration: 4-6 weeks
Start date: Flexible, Spring semester, 2019
Stipend: $25,000

The NCSU Libraries invites proposals from artists, scholars, and creative
technologists for a four-to-six-week residency to create immersive
scholarly visual content for one or more of the large-scale digital walls
in the award-winning James B. Hunt Jr. Library at NC State University in
Raleigh. The residency is sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon-funded
Visualizing Digital Scholarship in Libraries and Learning Spaces grant
(“Immersive Scholar”), and is part of the NCSU Code+Art program.

Residents are encouraged to interrogate the intersections of data,
knowledge, and culture through visual expression. This residency offers an
opportunity for the selected project to influence the way that people look
at the university’s role in supporting data visualization and digital art,
similar to the manner that the Hunt Library has started to change the way
that people think about academic libraries in the 21st century.

Libraries have long been places where people have explored new ways of
interacting with information and data. The NCSU Libraries’ Code+Art program
continues this tradition by bringing an aesthetic eye to the increasing
role of data in our lives by combining creative and computational thinking
in a library’s physical spaces. Code+Art provides the lens that focuses
this residency program.

*Program Details*
The resident will produce a large-scale work of digital art or
visualization. Creations could include generative art or dynamic,
data-driven visualizations of high aesthetic quality. The data underlying
the piece may or may not be literally interpretable, depending on the
resident’s scholarly approach.

To generate broader impact and a larger audience, the work will:
- Be open source
- Follow principles of responsive design
- Follow principles of universal design
- Be documented using principles of literate computing
- Be broadly distributed to other libraries and learning spaces with
similar visualization facilities

Additionally, the work should be scholarly output that is citable and
impactful. NCSU Libraries staff and collaborators will explore with the
resident innovative approaches to peer review, sharing, and credit for the
work created during the residency.

The work will be displayed on one or more of the Hunt Library’s large video
walls:
- Art Wall <https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/spaces/artwall> - the screen that
welcomes visitors to the Library
- iPearl Immersion Theater <http://ipearl%20immersion%20theater/> - the
Library’s premier storytelling venue
- Commons Wall <https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/spaces/commons-wall> - in the
heart of the Library’s learning spaces
- Visualization Wall <https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/spaces/visualization-wall> -
a unique shape that symbolizes the Library’s blend of physical and digital
space

Please see our Video Wall Guide
<https://github.com/NCSU-Libraries/visualization_templates/blob/master/DisplayServerSpecifications.md>
 for technical specifications of the walls. Additionally, the resident will
have access to the Libraries’ full suite of spaces for creation and making
<https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/spaces?s=1#/Make%20&%20Create/all/all/>.

The resident must have sufficient knowledge required to produce the work
described in their application for this residency. Experience in open web
technologies is strongly preferred, but other technologies could be
considered if the requirements for open source and broad distribution can
be met.

To further support the resident, the library will hire a student worker to
assist the resident with content production. The resident can specify the
student’s title and skill set. If additional technology skills are needed
beyond what the student employee can provide, the residency stipend may be
used to hire technical help.

The residency includes a stipend of $25,000 that can be used to cover
housing, travel, and other expenses incurred by the project.

Women and historically underrepresented communities are especially
encouraged to apply.

*Support and Community Engagement*
The resident will work closely with NCSU Libraries staff, who will
facilitate engagement with the NC State community and the broader scholarly
community. Libraries staff have expertise in visualization
<http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/do/visualization>, making
<http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/services/makerspace>, data management
<http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/do/data-management>, and other areas of research
support <http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/services/researcher-support>, and will be
available to the resident for consultation.

The resident will be expected to engage with the NC State community through
a talk and/or workshop, to be determined and facilitated with Libraries
staff.

NC State University <https://www.ncsu.edu/about/> is a pre-eminent research
enterprise that excels in science, technology, engineering, math, design,
the humanities and social sciences, textiles, and veterinary medicine.
Collaborations with NC State researchers and students will grow from the
vision and needs of the resident, and can be facilitated by Libraries
staff, who maintain deep relationships with the campus community.

This residency is funded as part of a larger, “Immersive Scholar” grant.
Immersive Scholar is a three-year effort funded by the Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation to develop extensible models and programs for the creation and
sharing of digital scholarship in large-scale and immersive visualization
environments. The resident, therefore, will be part of a larger, national
network of participating institutions
<https://immersivescholar.org/news/announcing-our-partners> and advisors
<https://immersivescholar.org/advisory-panel>. Work completed under this
residency must be designed to be open source and will be shared to the
grant’s participating cohort
<https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/news/ncsu-libraries-chooses-cohort-for-large-scale-visualization-grant>
 for display at their respective institutions.

*Eligibility Requirements*
- Must be eligible to work in the U.S.
- Must not be a currently enrolled student
- Must not be a UNC system employee

*Application*
- Statement of interest (500 words or less)
- Narrative and visual sketches of proposed work (500 words or less)
- Campus engagement plan outlining how the resident proposes to collaborate
with faculty and students
- Description of spaces, technologies, and support needed for project (500
words or less)
- Resume/CV
- Online portfolio of past relevant works
- 1 letter of reference

*Selection and Notification Process*
Proposals will be selected by the Immersive Scholar personnel
<https://immersivescholar.org/contact> based on the following criteria:
- Creativity of proposal
- Whether the proposal is extensible, desirable, and feasible for
distribution to multiple visualization installations

*Questions*
Please see http://immersivescholar.org for more information about the grant
and send inquiries to [log in to unmask]

*Submit applications through this Google Form
<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScVxSIRUT4L6L6FPu4gDxaKx1uritxAE6XsRnjaPb7gaf36XQ/viewform?usp=sf_link>.
All applications must be submitted by 8:00am EST, August 20th.*

*Frequently Asked Questions*
*Can NC State employees apply?*
No. These residencies are designed for visiting scholars, artists, or
technologists.

*Are there any guidelines on the data to be used or are there NC
State-related data you would like to see incorporated into the piece?*
There are no restrictions on the data sources, although it is our strong
preference that the data be findable, accessible, interoperable, and
reusable (FAIR). We will be distributing the project to other environments,
so a piece that only resonated with NC State audiences wouldn't be as
successful as one that was appealing across a spectrum of libraries and
learning spaces.

That said, we would like the selected resident to be able to engage with
our students and faculty during their stay, so to give you an idea of the
character of our campus, you could take a look at this page:
https://www.ncsu.edu/about/

Certainly, if there are any researchers at NC State who have data that is
of interest to you, it would strengthen a proposal to include collaboration
with that researcher.

*Can students apply?*
Students that are currently enrolled at any institution are not eligible.

*Can I use library data in my proposal, like circulation records or
resource logs?*
Probably not. State law prohibits any kind of disclosure of personally
identifiable library data. We also want the projects to be interesting
outside of NC State. Just because the residency is in a library doesn't
mean the project has to be about what libraries do or have.

*What is the difference between the Statement of Interest and the Narrative
of Proposed Work?*
The Statement of Interest should address how the Immersive Scholar
program's goals fit into your own thematic and/or biographical narrative as
an artist/scholar/professional. It is an opportunity to tell us anything
about yourself that may be relevant to your application but is not
otherwise addressed in the application materials. The Narrative of Proposed
work is a summary of your proposed project.
