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.

The Atmos R2 may be bigger than the brand’s previously-released vapes, but we argue that in this case it’s definitely a good thing. A bigger heating chamber means more room for packing it full. And the bigger battery means longer, more fulfilling vape sessions. In fact, you can use the Atmos R2 for up to about 25 […]
