rese arch LAB
This is a call for fellows invitation to join the second of the new type of rese arch events in Bratislava, Slovakia. Starting this spring, rese arch establishes an exchange platform for exceptional researchers in the field of digital design, fabrication, emerging technology and makers. The experts spend two weeks in Bratislava, developing their research project and at the end of their residency we invite eager and interested people – fellows – to form a think-tank and take part in the pinnacle of the project.
The event will be highly experimental and no specific result is guaranteed. The event will be accessible also to people who want to observe and learn, however the purpose of the gathering is not to teach, but rather to experiment, consult, make and network. The rese arch LAB is not a tutorial workshop, it’s a platform for a common development.
Materials are the core of the built environment, to understand them it is to understand the built environment.
The research project focuses on material behavior by precise (de)formation, by KUKA Robot, and kinematic hardening. By hacking physical properties of material and redefining its elasticity, strength, fatigue limit, creep we will review a potential use for architecture or product design. Is hardening an elastic material reversible? Can we reprogram the material and receive the initial material? How does the precise deformation enhance the investigated process?
Call for fellows
The think-tank gathers around a well-defined and developed research project lead by the project leader. The fellows will join the last 4 days and become part of the project, consult the current state, come up with new ideas and help verify and test the outputs. Even though between the project leader and the fellows is not meant to be a teaching-learning relationship, the rese arch LAB vitally contains also lectures, short tutorial workshops and catching-up sessions. The fellows will learn new knowledge and will gain hands-on experience, however they are required to be able to contribute to the research project. Therefore the position is not open to everyone and the fellows are being invited or called for through a portfolio and CV selection process. The exceptional individuals who can both, benefit from and contribute to the project will be selected by the project leaders and Jan Pernecky.
Despite its academic ambition, the rese arch LAB event should keep an informal nature. Therefore there is no specific application form nor a strict application process. We would appreciate if you could send an email at the address of Ján Pernecký (firstname.lastname@example.org) clearly stating your interest to participate in the rese arch LAB as a fellow. Please, mention also your accommodation requirements and any other remarks you might have. As this is a small project, we will arrange the details of your arrival, stay, participation and payment individually over email. The deadline for the submissions is Friday, 29 May 2015 at noon 12pm, however keep in mind that only a limited number of fellows will be admitted.
The participation fee is set to the absolute minimum of 150€ for the fellows and 200€ for the trainees, however generous extra donations are also welcome. This covers only the participation at the rese arch LAB event.
