The White Building and Eyebeam are thrilled to announce the inaugural recipient of this first-of-its kind joint residency program is James Bridle. The 5-month residency will begin in mid January of 2014 and run through June of 2014, the first half of the time will be spent at SPACE-run centre, The White Building, London and the second half at Eyebeam, New York.

Bridle’s proposed project sits at the intersection of all five of the areas of the residency call's inquiry. James’s research into the New Aesthetic (a term the artist coined) crosses into many areas of art, society and politics, examining the ways we explain technology to ourselves. In this project, James plans to address the ways in which the New Aesthetic might be considered specifically queer, and what can be learned from that reading of it.

About Bridle:


We are thrilled to announce the 2013 Fall/Winter Residents! Since the organization's founding in 1997, Eyebeam has supported over 250 artists and technologists through its residency and fellowship programs. Residents are provided with funds to complete a specific project during five-month residency cycles in the fall and spring; Fellows are selected based on a body of work and given 11 months to develop their practice. These select artists form the core of Eyebeam’s community by generating new work and interacting with the public, resulting in a critical examination of social, political and aesthetic implications of technology.


Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2013 Spring/Summer Residencies and 2013 Fellowships, beginning in March. Residencies have been awarded to 7 artists and Fellowships have been awarded to 4 artists. The research-based practices represented by this cohort will focus on a broad spectrum of topics including web-based poetics; online information biases; Cyberfeminism and online art in the early 90's; and relationships to the virtual in everyday life. All incoming artists and technologists receive generous stipends and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research and fabrication studios. 


Beatriz da Costa’s multidisciplinary projects are bioart with a heart, installations, videos, and performances that artfully merge biotechnology and social issues. Many of her projects entail the idea and practice of “public amateurism,” in which artists conduct science research based on hobbyism and DIY interest as a form of active social participation. Over many years Beatriz has produced cross-species projects in which microbes, pigeons, and genetically modified crops have played a key role. In the Life Garden, an installation from her latest series The Costs of Life, she blends medical research related to cancer with her personal experiences to create a greenhouse filled with plants that are medicinal for treating cancer. Beatriz generously answered a few questions proposed by intern Katherine DiPierro about her engaging interdisciplinary work.


A two-day presentation at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center allowing an inside look at current research and in-progress work. Open Studios is a chance to meet the amazing artists and creative technologists that make Eyebeam an exciting creative incubator of new ideas, new art, and new technology: Think, Make, Share.

I'll be joining an amazing group of artists for EFA Project Space's New York City Arts Workers Studio Residency. Launched by EFA Project Space in August 2010, the Studio Residency for New York City Arts Workers is the only residency of its kind, providing an opportunity for accomplished art professionals (administrators, curators, directors), who are artists in their own right, the space and encouragement to focus on their studio practice.


Interested in being a resident or fellow at Eyebeam? Now's your chance, our call is up!!! Both the residencies and fellowships have a March 1 start date. Full info. is now online: Residency Call / Fellows Call. We're looking forward to hearing from you!


We held a How To Apply - Eyebeam Residencies forum here in New York.  I expected maybe 30 people, but over 100 showed up.  It was a great chance for applicants to ask questions about the residency program.  A lot of commonly raised issues were ironed out, with insights provided by recent Residency Curatorial Panelist Robert Ransick (Bennington College, Vermont) and current Eyebeam Senior Fellow Steve Lambert (Parsons/The New School and Hunter College).  Thanks to them both, and Amanda, for taking the time out to help make the application process as clear as possible for everyone involved.

Applying to Eyebeam Residency or Fellowship

I'd like to apply, but you haven't told me how to yet. What's going on? 

In the coming spring, we are putting our residency on hold for the first time in a decade. We’re pausing in order to rethink the whole program from the ground up, asking our 300+ alums for their guidance:

  • Which practitioners need Eyebeam’s support? 
  • What does that support look like?
  • How do we make their vision real and how can we increase its impact in our communities?

The evolved form of the residency may be similar to its current one, or drastically altered. We just don't know yet—but expect news about it in March or April of 2016.
