16 NYC public high school students pitch their ideas for new apps for the mobile platform. Over the course of 12 intense summer days, as part of Eyebeam's 11th annual Digital Day Camp program, these teens worked with a team of experienced interaction designers to learn about all aspects of mobile technology ? from thinking critically about mobile phones (what they can and cannot do, what we think they are for, how people use them, and how we think people will be using them in the near future), to taking an idea from brainstorming into development, to thinking about a user story and experience, to communicating an app identity through visual design and graphic elements. These students ideated, mood boarded, story boarded, designed pitches and were all around brilliant.

Magic Moments is a collection of texts and images reflecting opinions and insights of artists working on creative projects with young people. It examines their motives and working processes, evaluating the importance of art as an instrument of social change. The book spans projects from the late 1960s to the present day and demonstrates how work with young people has often been central for many artists and is becoming increasingly legitimate as a field of practice.

What was once the factory is now the university. We started off with this apparently straightforward affirmation, not in order to assume it but to question it; to open it, radically rethinking it, towards theoretical and political research. The Edu-factory project took off from here. Edu-factory is, above all, a partisan standpoint on the crisis of the university. The state university is in ruins, the mass university is in ruins, and the university as a privileged place of national culture‚ just like the concept of national culture itself, is in ruins. We're not suffering from nostalgia. Quite the contrary, we vindicate the university‚ destruction. In fact, the crisis of the university was determined by social movements in the first place. This is what makes us not merely immune to tears for the past but enemies of such a nostalgic disposition.

 

Missing the Visual Music Collaborators (Blair Neal, Evan Boehm, George Michael Brower, Jono Brandel, Lars Berg, Michael Chang, Noah Keating, Riley Harmon, Sougwen Chung, Steve Varga, Will Calcutt, Aaron Koblin, Aaron Meyers, & the Ghostly team!). Luckily I have this great set of photos from Collab-orator Will Calcutt to moon over!

"Silver Surfers" (tentative title) is an experimental video piece investigating relationships between age, technological change and progress, and science fiction. Older people are interviewed about their thoughts on the future, science fiction and technological progress. These interviews become the starting point for the development of scenes and story-lines that will be directed by Jacob Ciocci and acted partially by the elderly. So far Jacob has collaborated with members of the New School's Institute for Retired Professionals in a series of interviews and there are plans to collaborate with other individuals and organizations in the coming months.

A molecular gastronomer and environmental artist team up to make diners reconsider the source of their food and the impacts of their eating habits

[Published 2nd July 2010 03:17 PM GMT]

The first dinner of the Cross (x) Species supper club last Saturday straddled science, environmentalism and performance art.

 

The student residents of Eyebeam have at last left the building.
Our residency came to a close with the start of Open Studios, a small
reception in our honor was organized after the first day of open
studios.

Eyebeam has supplied us with endless possibilities, and as we left
leaving plenty of watering eyes and smiling faces we enter the world
equip with an entirely different set of perspectives; all thanks to
Eyebeam.

We've enjoyed our stay as student residents though we're positive this
wont be the last you'll see of us.

Eyebeam's Student Resident program is a school-year long digital arts and technology program for New York City public high school students who are interested in experimenting, learning, and creating with new technology tools.

During the program Student Residents work with Eyebeam fellows and residents as collaborators and mentees, learn to work with new tools for creative practice, and create individual and group projects. The student residents come to us through our summer youth program, Digital Day Camp and from there, are invited to apply to the student resident program.

 

Girls Eye View this year was deep. 

In the end, we ended up with these two short animations, made by two wonderful young women. Along the way, we experimented with lots of media and writing; and talked a LOT about these words, and why they are meaningful to each of us.
