The SketchUp Residency is a project created and curated by artists Sid and Jim. Participating artists are asked to use 3D modelling software 'SketchUp' for the duration of their term. Using the SketchUp Marketplace Sid and Jim will curate a series of models to be used as the location of each residency. Artists might want to consider the location, medium, the SketchUp marketplace and of course, their own practice when forming concepts for their work; they are allowed to use any of the features that SketchUp offers.

A CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND

 

This month’s location is A Chlidren's Playground meaning that selected artists will be making work in this location. The manner in which this manifests is entirely up to the artist! We will try to facilitate anything that the selected artist believes to be appropriate or necessary for the conceptual structure of the work they make during the residency. This could be anything from a navigable 3D model for the SketchUp website, to an embedded animation of the work, to a downloadable VR model. Please be inventive and don’t feel limited by these suggestions!

Artists must consider the exhibition ‘space’ to be online; at the end of the residency the 3D model will be the homepage of the website. Users will be have the ability to explore the work online, as well as download it themselves and even make it compatible with basic VR equipment such as Google Cardboard.

During the residency selected applicants are asked to publish their research via The SketchUp Residency Instagram account, posts can be made, found, stolen etc. and should be done at least twice a day. 

SketchUp is a free 3D modelling program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, landscape architecture, civil and mechanical engineering, film, and video game design.
