what is "made up"?
project proposal / application
We are looking for projects motivated by research questions that use design/making as a mode of inquiry. (see the MDP's Research Agenda.) While we are specifically looking for projects related to the 2010 Ideas-in-the-Making theme, “made up,” we will consider projects that deal with other subjects related to media design. We define “media” broadly and are open to projects from industrial design, art, architecture, information science, computer science, social sciences, and the Digital Humanities that address some aspect of interaction, digital culture, pervasive computing, communication technology, screen culture, or social media – as part of the subject or process of the work.
Given the modest budget and time frame, we consider this an opportunity to explore a discrete question as part of a larger investigation and/or an opportunity to test a new idea. Applicants should demonstrate an ability to successfully document and disseminate experimental design and research projects.
We cannot fund commercial projects – projects for which the researcher is being paid by a client – however we are not averse to projects that have potential commercial applications.
Applications should be submitted electronically as a single pdf according to the following directions:
