As head of the Ars Electronica Residency Network Claudia worked as producer, mentor, curator, researcher, project manager, communicator, and many more roles in these diverse projects. The Ars Electronica Residency Network combined all residency activities at Ars Electronica in one framework. Residency programs like e.g., Collide@CERN, TRANSMIT³ and CAT@Ars Electronica created a formal possibility to spend time at the Ars Electronica Futurelab. Some exceptions were allowed that enabled to support artists or scientists to visit for a limited period and get some mentoring. But also other projects that included residencies have been produced within the framework of the Ars Electronica Residency Network. These projects are Sparks, European Digital Art and Science Network and the Connecting Cities Network Research Residencies.
TRANSMIT³ was the residency program in collaboration with QUT. Three residency projects have been realized for the Cube at QUT: with Lauren McCarthy in 2016, with Friedrich Kirschner in 2015 and with Zachary Lieberman in 2014.
CAT@Ars Electronica was a program in collaboration with the South Korean organization CTIA. I intensely mentored the two projects that have been developed in up to 4-month long residencies. The first project planted by Korean sound artist YoungSun Kim has been realized in 2014, the second project Jangdna by Korean media artist Hyungjoong Kim has been realized in 2015.
The last two winners of [the next idea] voestalpine art and technology grant have also been part of the Ars Electronica Residency Network. In 2014 Markus Schmeiduch, Ruben van der Vleuten and Andrew Spitz won the grant for their project BlindMaps. In 2015 XXLab won with their project Soya C(o)u(l)ture.
Ryoji Ikeda won the last Prix Ars Electronicy Collide@CERN residency which has been realized within the Ars Electronica Residency Network.
The first artist in residence Claudia worked with was Daniel Crooks. He was the last of six Australian artists who had the possibility to work with the Ars Electronica Futurelab based on a collaboration with the Australian Council for the Arts and Novamedia.
