m-cult's EMAP residencies are organised in collaboration with the lovely Eläintarha residency in a wooden villa from 1889, located in a park in central Helsinki. The villa has individual rooms for artists, shared kitchen and spacious living room with a balcony.
As studio space, the artist is offered a room/workshop space at the m-cult office, with recourse to computing (mac/ubuntu), optical fibre internet, video and audio facilities (cameras, recorders, microphones, lights, projectors etc). Additional facilities (eg. fablab, carpentry, larger studio, special soft&hardware) will be arranged with m-cult and partners. The residency also includes bikes.
m-cult's focus is on the social aspects of technology: of special interest are projects with a public or socially engaged dimension, as well as projects that embody critical approaches to reimagine our lives on the internet.
