Lee writes, "Philadelphia's Hacktory has just announced its Call For Artists for its new Unknown Territory Fellowship and Artist-In-Residency."
The Unknown Territory Fellowship seeks established new media artists, digital artists, and artists with a history of working with software and electronics worldwide. Artists looking to focus on a specific project or avenue to explore in their work are invited to apply to work on that during a period of 2-4 weeks with the resources and knowledge base at The Hacktory. In addition to working on a specific project, fellows teach workshops and lead programs about their work.
The Unknown Territory Artist-In-Residency is an extended 6-month residency for Philadelphia-based emerging and established artists with an art, music or performance practice. These artists will have little or no new media and technology experience but want to transform their current practice by exploring what's possible with new technologies. This residency consists of training on software, hardware and other materials, mentorship by members of The Hacktory's community, and culminates in a group exhibition of all residents' work.

It’s 2016 and we like our technology really small. Our phones fit in our pockets, our remotes are lighter than ever, and even our cars seem to be shrinking. So your new drone shouldn’t be an exception. This Axis VIDIUS Drone is 21% off right now and it’s so little, your biggest problem won’t be […]
