It has been my pleasure to help rebuild and facilitate the IMRC Researcher in Residence Program over the past three years at the University of Maine with a group of other key faculty members and students. You can read more details about the program here: http://imrccenter.com/researcher-in-residence/
IMRC residencies support the creative research, production and presentation of initiatives in new media, intermedia, and other technology areas, and their social and cultural application. The residency supports a period of concentration and immersion in creative investigation, cutting-edge research or production of visionary, experimental applications and projects. Potential initiatives might range from live intermedia productions, sound and physical computing works to technical prototypes, installations and tactical media events.
As a special related project, it was an honor to work with IMFA Graduate student Wade Warman and Sean Taylor our IMRC Fab Lab manager to design this sustainable bamboo wall divider for the new RiR studio space in the IMRC.
