CALL: MAXmachina lab

MAXmachina application page

Media Art Xploration (MAX) invites storytellers, performers, and creative technologists to submit applications to our 2023 MAXmachina lab program. We are looking for projects that expand live performance by using science and technology to explore the promise and the peril of our rapidly changing world. 

In addition to pairing projects with advisors and collaborators when needed, MAX provides residents with development strategies and active production support. MAXmachina projects are chosen for their artistic potential, ability to instill wonder, qualities of aural and visual fascination, diversity of perspective, and emotional and philosophic potency.

Works developed in MAXmachina will be presented at our next MAXlive festival.

Building on MAXlive 2021: The Neuroverse, our 2023 programming will continue to traverse the boundaries between intelligences: natural and artificial, human and more than human. We are excited to bring creators and audiences together again to examine our role in an increasingly unstable planet.
