Xenoform Labs also offers a less formal “Stopover Residency”. This is a 3-4 day residency at Xenoform Labs, which is offered to selected artists, thinkers and curators. The idea is that if you are in San Francisco doing a stopover for another trip, you have a space for creative inquiry.
This is an alternate to the 1-month long Xenoform Labs Residency, which is more structured with a deeper commitment.
How it works
During the Stopover Residency you will brainstorming ideas and prototyping new work. Together or with other relevant artists, we will share research, develop a dialogue around a shared idea, perhaps generate some prototypes or directions for new work to go in.
In the evening, we will conclude the activity with a public presentation: a talk or exercise to engage about 15 selected people in the art and tech community in San Francisco.
