Digital Day Camp 2010 (DDC10) engaged 16 NYC public high school students in the pilot of our Mobile App School. As part of this 3-week intensive, students worked alongside experienced artists, designers, and technologists to design their own software application for the mobile platform. Students researched cell phones as tools for creative interaction, learned how to create graphics for mobile devices, and organized all their great ideas into one collaborative mobile app proposal. At a closing reception for the Mobile App School, students and creative collaborators pitched their proposed app to an audience of application developers.

Bios are for squares, gosh.
I'm Jade.
I'm 16 years young.
The Enter Key is my best friend besides Caroline. I love them both equally.
Kinda.
I draw faces on inanimate objects, so when I yell at them I feel like they're actually listening to me and feels sorry that they burned my toast, or me rather.
I am a bear of very little brain, and long words bother me.

The final project for Digital Day Camp '09 took the form of a "Pop Up Party." What follows is a description of the process of the making of the DDC09 Pop Up Party.

Over the course of one week, DDC09 researched and explored the Highline – asking ourselves questions about what it once was, what it is now, who built it, for who – by interviewing people on it, and people who live and work nearby, including those who have never checked it out, and never plan to. We considered everything we had learned, and using all our skills and resources developed of the course of this summer, we decided to design a guerrilla, public intervention.

Luther Cherry is currently a Junior and cello major at LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts. He participated in Eyebeam’s Digital Day Camp in the summer of 2009, and still can’t stop talking about it. Luther loves art and technology, and has found an interest in interacting with the public. He helped create a “Pop Up Party” under the Highline, and wants to create a trend of Pop Up Parties all over the country.

Luther loves fashion, and considers himself pretty fierce. He likes keeping everything neat and clean, and rearranges his room in every set up possible. Luther used to write for 9to5mac.com, but is now retired and writes reviews for High 5. He has an alternate persona, who goes by the name of Luther Yamaguchii. In his spare time he writes a fashion blog, LutherYamaguchii.wordpress.com, and makes bracelets out of various materials he finds around the town and his house.

DDC09 students have used all their wisdom and know-how collected over the course of this summer to plan their final project – A Pop-Up Party! The party will include ice-cold lemonade (delivered via pulley system to both Highline and Lowline visitors), a fort for contemplating life, games (competive box ball, hula hoops, checkers...), live musical performances, a movie theater for two screening this summer's creations, a hanging garden and edible plant giveaway, and a jacuzzi!

Join us!
Tuesday, July 28th, 6-8pm

We are very excited for today's collaboration between teens from this year's Digital Day Camp (DDC) program, and teens from the Whitney Youth Insights Summer Intensive program. The two groups will be joining forces to work with Eyebeam Residents, Rebecca Bray and Britta Riley as part of their Window Farm design team. Today's workshop will ask the question - How can we start a window farming craze in NYC and beyond, using either offline or online resources?

Check out the DDC09 blog to see how it all turns out:

Digital Day Camp 2009 students engage in lectures and hands-on workshops focusing on art and technology tools, careers in the field, and relevant social and artistic topics. Through their investigations, they will have the opportunity to research current themes in arts and technology, and develop their own project in response to what they discover.

Final projects are promoted through Eyebeam’s website, and through a final public event on Tuesday, July 28, from 6–8pm on 19th St between 10th and 11th Ave, beneath the Highline.

Digital Day Camp 2000 was an all-girl program designed to encourage media literacy to help provide access to art and technology tools to a statistically under-served group. The participants were paired with professionals from Oxygen Media, in addition to volunteers from Pixar Animation Studios, MTV, MTV Networks, and Cyber grrls, to discuss media literacy and the female image in the media today. Teams created an original, digital public service announcement (PSA) about a relevant social topic using digital video cameras and desktop digital editing equipment (imovie).
