FUSE Residency

FUSE:_cadre/montalvo artist research residency initiative (FUSE) is a collaboration between San Jose State University’s CADRE Laboratory for New Media and the prestigious Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California. This research-residency program represents a compelling platform for collaboration, experimentation, creativity and innovation focused on emerging new media and technology. FUSE connects fine arts students from the CADRE Laboratory in unorthodox partnerships with artists that inspire new forms of technology-based production and experience. Through cross-discipline collaborations, the residency-model provides an arena for addressing some of the most pertinent issues of our time including, but not limited to, concerns of globalization, sustainability, censorship, human rights, social responsibility, human centered design and a focus on the next generation.
