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.

From sound collages and virtual sculpture to his collaborative website gifpumper, Slava Balasanov’s projects are riotous, self-aware of their digital status. The Digit, an augmented reality sculpture of two connected thumbs, is only visible through an iPhone app, where it can be seen hovering over Union Square, its chrome surface mirroring the sky and ground. After making a few additions to gifpumper, Eyebeam intern Katherine DiPierro sat down with Slava for a chat about some of his past work.

For many years now, Matt Parker has been developing ways to redefine and subvert video games. Many of his physical games utilize interactive screens that represent participating players in unusual ways, such as his motion game Recurse, which was a finalist at Indiecade 2010. Eyebeam intern Katherine DiPierro, who’s still amazed how inexpensive it is to make your own 3D projector, sat down with Matt to chat about his work.

Eyebeam's Fall 2011 season is underway! On September 19, a few of Eyebeam's many residents and fellows gathered for an informal "pause work" to discuss their planned projects, exchanged ideas and suggestions, and enjoy one of the first cool days of fall. Fellows present were Mark Shepard, Mary Mattingly, and Taeyoon Choi. Carrie Mae Rose and Alex Chen, both new residents for the fall, were also in attendance, as were Roddy Schrock, Associate Director: Creative Residencies, and Kyle Kessler, Eyebeam Production Assistant.

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.

Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2011 Fall/Winter Residencies. Cash awards totaling $25,000, but much more than that, access to amazing resources including 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research, and fabrication studios have been awarded to 6 artists in the areas of performance, wearable technology, interactive installation, media art, and sonification/ visualization.

Eyebeam’s residents are selected from two yearly open calls of emerging artists and creative technologists for a five-month residency, which includes a stipend as well as access to Eyebeam’s facilities, equipment, and opportunities for collaboration and development of work. This group of six residents was selected from a group of 176 applicants.

Conflux, the art and technology festival for the creative exploration of urban public space, one again presents a huge array of interactive art and technology events over the weekend of October 08–10, 2010 in the East Village. Participants will transform the neighborhood into a street-based laboratory with art installations, interactive performances, games, guided expeditions and more. Indoor events, headquartered at NYU's Barney Building (34 Stuyvesant St.), include a keynote address by renowned urban explorer Steve Duncan, evening performances and the Conflux Café series of artist-led talks and workshops.

 

Our most recent Fall Residents and Fellows have finished their vacations and are hard at work: Aram Bartholl, from Berlin, is preparing his Point of Vision project to engage the public at Eyebeam in late October. Stefani Bardin is in the house working on The Omnivore's Pleasure and other projects already begun through a collaborative residency with our farming partner upstate, Andes Sprout Society.

 

Our newly arrived Summer Residents and Fellows are hard at work: Hernani Dias is planning public workshops for urban/mobile farming with Andes Sprouts Society for his re:farm the city project. Jon Cohrs is in the house working on his plant prosthetic appendages, creating life support systems for plants. And Mark Shepard is completing the Eyebeam portion of his Sentient City Survival Kit project, ready to take it to Rotterdam where he'll finish production at V2_ as part of the inaugural joint Eyebeam/V2_ residency. And finally, Drew Hemment, founder and Artistic Director of FutureEverything, will work with us starting this week in his position as an Honorary Resident.
