Recent practices at the intersection of arts and technology have started to explore the boundaries and the intersections between the two, and to find new ways to speak about the artistic work produced.
In this spirit, the aim of the “Boundary-Crosser” residency project is to provide an opportunity for artists to explore creative intersections and processes with technologists. In practice what this means is that artists will be hosted by one of the 8 participating CYENS Centre of Excellence Labs and will generate artistic work, during and after their time of residency.
At the heart of Nicosia’s historic centre, the CYENS Centre of Excellence is a new and vibrant entity, connecting academic research with cutting-edge tech developments. The insertion of artists, through processes of Creative Placemaking, into the work of CYENS’ research groups aims to open new possibilities for creativity, engagement, and dialogue.
