A|R|C invites international artists for month-long collaborative residencies at ambient.space studios, East London. This programme follows the very successful ambient.vista residencies , in which four international artists reframed the city by addressing the views over it afforded by the hosting studio. For A|R|C, invited artists are asked to consider, in collaboration with hosts Manu Luksch and Mukul Patel, the prospect from the studio in the metaphorical sense of possible futures: specifically, those arising from transformations of public space (both 'real' and online) and conceptions of citizenship. This work will feed into Luksch & Patel's long-term artistic research project, FUNCTION CREEP, which examines and proposes experiments of sustainable living. The A|R|C residencies will continue throughout 2012 and 2013.
