On November 16, Eyebeam's fellows, residents, and student residents gathered in the main space together with staff to present their works in progress.

Honorary Resident Hsing Wei presented proposals from Digital Teacher Corps, a partnership between Eyebeam and New Visions for Public Schools. Fellow Mary Mattingly presented in-progress images of her Wearable Homes and Flock Houses, along with images of past projects.

Members of Eyebeam's Student Residency Program also presented proposals of projects they will create during their year-long residencies. The five high school students will work together with residents and fellows in Eyebeam's state of the art facilities to create works of art and technology through the media of video production, dance, activism, game design, and textile technology.

At a time when “sustainable” and “environmentally friendly” are the latest marketing buzzwords, Maria Michails creates projects which invite both meditation and participation in the processes of ecology and the consumption of energy. Her interactive sculptures relate the exploitative effects of human consumption of energy (past projects have highlighted the effects of industrial agriculture and fracking) and graft natural materials with precise electronic instruments and participant-powered mechanisms. Eyebeam intern Katherine DiPierro sat down with Maria to talk about her past and current projects.

Applying to Eyebeam Residency or Fellowship

International/out of town applicants

Out of town residents and fellows are responsible for their travel costs, accommodation, and moving expenses. Eyebeam staff will assist as much as possible with locating accommodation in New York.  We can also provide advice in contacting agencies to help negotiate Visa requirements to live and work in the United States.

Residency and fellowship applicants interested in being considered for a future cycle should indicate this preference in the the application form. This can be helpful when taking into consideration the length of time to procure the appropriate visa.

Residency vs. Fellowship: What’s the difference?


Fellows at Eyebeam

Eyebeam Fellows are artists, hackers, and engineers who spearhead new research and develop exciting new work at the point where art and technology meet. Eyebeam Fellows regularly develop innovative and creative open source technology within an environment that fosters collaborative development. Fellows lead public seminars, exhibitions, and educational programming, and help direct Eyebeam's Research Groups. These individuals are selected in recognition of their exceptional talent and the belief that a sustained research period is critical for the development of new ideas and innovative work—goals central to Eyebeam’s mission. For further information, please see our FAQ.
