9to5 is a month-long digital art exhibition in Atlanta that dissolves the boundary between artist and audience by way of an experimental livestream and other emerging interfaces.
Unlike other art exhibitions, the ideal 9to5 experience is online, where patrons can interact with the projects and performances broadcasted, and influence the final artworks using our custom built suite of inputs.
9to5 is equal parts: Artist Residency, Gallery, Classroom, & TV Network
/ Features and curates artworks
/ Hosts discussions and lectures
/ Invites the public to view the work
/ Facilitates immersive studies

If you have a potential project that utilizes livestreaming and / or digital inputs to blur the line between ‘viewer’ and ‘collaborator’, we want to hear from you. From data visualization to interpretative dance, podcasts to prose, AI to the humanities, all artists and technologists with an interest in experimentation are welcome.
Talent will have access to a ton of new technology courtesy of Georgia State University.
For talent that needs it, travel to Atlanta will be covered by 9to5, along with lodging and food.
All submissions will be considered, but there are limited slots available in each category.

Coming soon from 9to5. A suite of tools that will make viewer interaction with the livestream a cinch to program. One of the main focuses of 9to5 projects is a user provided input translating to a project or artist output. With that in mind, our team is attempting to simplify the process for any developer or artist looking to program an output by pre-developing a set of inputs. Chat and social are already implemented thanks to streaming partner Maestro, and now the 9to5 team is focusing on more experimental methods of interaction.
Here’s how they work:
1. The artist determines what output they’d like to see, like the dimming of a lightbulb.
2. Artist selects their input from the suite of tools, such as “click and drag”.
3. Because 9to5 has already developed the input, the artist only needs to plug our “click and drag” tool into their “dimmer” output.

The 9to5 team is incredibly excited to share our second iteration with you. The concept has evolved significantly from our first weeklong exhibition in early 2016, which, like most early projects, relied heavily on those friends willing to pick up a broom or a camera or a paintbrush. Today, with the help of FIELD EXPERIMENT and our sponsors, we have built a fully realized platform for artists and technologists who, just like us, want to make projects that invent new ways of making, collaborating, and teaching. We’re excited to lend the hands we can... just as our friends did for us. See you in September.

Once described as a “headline machine”, he’s praying for the day they start giving Oscars for livestreams. Or at least really good sandwiches.
