Eyebeam and Mozilla are teaming up to co-sponsor Art Hack Day at 319 Scholes, which runs Thursday February 28-Saturday March 2, 2013.
Sixty artists and hackers will inhabit 319 Scholes to explore the idea of "God Mode" and produce new, collaborative projects. Open(Art) Fellows Forrest Oliphant, Toby Schachman, and Addie Wagenknecht will participate along with Eyebeam Fellows, Residents, and Alumni: Heather Dewey-Hagborg, James George, Lauren McCarthy, Aaron Meyers, Jonathan Minard, and Ramsey Nasser.
Visitors are invited to engage and interact with the works as they are uploaded online throughout the hack and join the teams on Saturday March 2nd starting at 7:00pm for a closing exhibition, live performances, and celebration.
