MAAJAAM Project Space 2018
open call for installations/interventions

MAAJAAM is seeking proposals for a 10-day production residency aimed towards an exhibition/festival (festibition). The works are to be installed/performed in the landscape spread out around MAAJAAM.

We are looking for:

site-sensitive installations
other process-based projects

The aim of the residency is to explore the idea of digital natives and digital immigrants. At the present time, people are more connected to each other by technology than by physical space. Technological tools have become our prosthesis, that help us reach out on global level. Subsequent generations awaken into new technological normalities being disjunct to the realities of their predecessors. Compared to their forefathers, the digital immigrants, who were expected to adapt in a fast-evolving society powered by technology and steered by global markets, their sense of reality has transformed.

The residency is located at MAAJAAM, an old farmhouse in Southern Estonia that blends together the two realities of digital immigrants and natives. Created to encourage experimentations with technological realities, the residency gives space to contemplate, question and explore aspects of technological society; its influence on our behaviour, perception and thinking as well as on our surrounding environments.
