art&science@ESO Residency Award winners Quadrature make a visit
Quadrature, the winners of the 2015 art&science@ESO Residency Award paid a visit to ESO headquarters in Garching on the 4 July 2016. A group of artists now based in Berlin, the team consists of Jan Bernstein, Sebastian Neitsch and Juliane Götz. Together they describe themselves as “an atelier for arts, robotics and light”.
The award is the result of the ongoing cooperation between ESO and Ars Electronica. Quadrature were selected from a highly competitive pool of 322 entrants from 55 countries who responded to the 2015 Open Call. For their prize, they will take up a residency at one of ESO’s observatories in Chile, followed by a month at the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz, Austria where they will develop and create new work inspired by the visit to ESO.
