New concepts and emerging technologies have always had a significant effect on art, a fact that became almost endemic in the twentieth century. Whether it’s the emergence of cinema, video, or the internet, technology has become increasingly integral to artistic production. The Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, a non-for-profit space in Chelsea, is dedicated to exploring the continuously evolving relationship of contemporary art and design to technology. Often presenting a heterogeneous and even dizzying array of works, this space is always a fun visit. Now through January 29, Eyebeam will be presenting X-lab, an open house lab that lets the public sneak a peek into what the center's residents and fellows are up to. Featuring the work of Aaron Meyers, Brooke Singer, and Jacob Ciocci and numerous others.
