Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2012 Spring/Summer Residencies and 2012 Fellowships, beginning in March. All incoming artists and technologists receive generous stipends and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research, and fabrication studios. Residencies have been awarded to 6 artists in the areas of digital sound, games, urban research, bio art, and video and new media installation.



Eyebeam is more committed than ever to working with its illustrious extended alumni family in producing new programming in our West Chelsea space and providing support for your ideas around public programs and workshops. As this is our 15th anniversary year, we are looking for exciting ideas, large and small, that either look back to our past accomplishments or forward to new challenges.  


Eyebeam is pleased to announce its Open Call for 2012 Spring/Summer Residencies. Up to six Residents will join continuing Fellows and Residents in the first quarter of 2012 at Eyebeam's shared design, research, and fabrication labs. Eyebeam Residents are selected from a semi-annual open call and receive a 5-month residency with stipend in support of project realization.

Eyebeam's Fall 2011 season is underway! On September 19, a few of Eyebeam's many residents and fellows gathered for an informal "pause work" to discuss their planned projects, exchanged ideas and suggestions, and enjoy one of the first cool days of fall. Fellows present were Mark Shepard, Mary Mattingly, and Taeyoon Choi. Carrie Mae Rose and Alex Chen, both new residents for the fall, were also in attendance, as were Roddy Schrock, Associate Director: Creative Residencies, and Kyle Kessler, Eyebeam Production Assistant.


I'll be joining an amazing group of artists for EFA Project Space's New York City Arts Workers Studio Residency. Launched by EFA Project Space in August 2010, the Studio Residency for New York City Arts Workers is the only residency of its kind, providing an opportunity for accomplished art professionals (administrators, curators, directors), who are artists in their own right, the space and encouragement to focus on their studio practice.


Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2011 Fall/Winter Residencies. Awards totaling $25,000 and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research, and fabrication studios have been awarded to 6 artists in the areas of performance, wearable technology, interactive installation, media art, and sonification/visualization.

Eyebeam’s residents are selected from two yearly open calls of emerging artists and creative technologists for a five-month residency, which includes a stipend as well as access to Eyebeam’s facilities, equipment, and opportunities for collaboration and development of work. This group of six residents was selected from a group of 176 applicants.


Join GAFFTA and Eyebeam in San Fransisco for a Sound Research Group meeting on August 3rd, 6–8PM. Thinkers and makers will be brought together in dialogue with the goal of stimulating new points of overlap and conversation around issues of both production and aesthetics.  Discussion will be centered around projects/initiatives that have grown out of the New York City group, new work by Bay Area artists, as well as a discussion led by Marc Weidenbaum, founder of, around sound-art remix projects he has curated and their intersection with #netlabel culture. 

This is a great opportunity to join the conversation and participate in an ongoing collaboration on developing dialogue around sound art on both the west and east coast.
