New Commission Opportunity

A NEW COMMISSION OPPORTUNITY FOR NetPark as part of Estuary 2020

The Opportunity

Metal are looking to commission an artist to create a new AR (Augmented Reality) digital artwork for NetPark – the worlds first digital art park in Chalkwell Park, the well-used, popular municipal park in Southend on Sea.

The artist will be invited into residence with Metal at Chalkwell Hall, to co-create and develop ideas for the work in collaboration with academics (in Computer Science / Theatre) from the University of Kent and University of Essex.

No specific digital skills or prior knowledge are necessarily required from the artist. Metal works in an interdisciplinary way, encouraging artists to experiment and blur boundaries.  Technical expertise will be offered by our academic partners and BA Computer Science students.

The new artwork will be launched as part of Estuary 2020 in September 2020.

This project is supported by EIRA (Enabling Innovation: Research to Application) to research the impact and benefits of AR technology on our perception and use of outdoor spaces.
