Eye to Eyebeam is a new series on Eyebeam's artists in residence and fellows. The series will include interviews, photos, and other information and is authored by Eyebeam intern Katherine DiPierro.
For Eyebeam Fellow Nova Jiang, participatory creativity is everything. From participant-manipulated puppets to a comic book that generates itself, her intricate mechanical projects engage viewers in unexpected ways and lead to shared social events. More importantly, Nova’s work playfully invites viewers to become collaborators in the pieces by adding their own creative thoughts or actions. Intrepid Eyebeam intern Katherine DiPierro sat down with Nova to chat about her work.
