Deadline to sign-up June 21

Join us this July for a series of week-long, studio-based intensives. Work alongside Eyebeam Fellows Kaho Abe and Jacob Ciocci and their collaborators, experimenting and playing with creative uses of the latest tools in art, media, and technology. Walk away with at the very least a working prototype of a project, and of course learn some new skills along the way.

These courses will simulate a residency experience at Eyebeam - Over the course of the week, participants will spend time working and hanging out with the artists, designers, academics, and technologists from around the world that make up our community, and have studio access to studio tools and equipment relevant to your work here. Eyebeam’s studio is located in the heart of NYC’s Chelsea art district, and provides a fertile context for thinking, making and sharing.

Packard Jennings says, "My art is born from a sense of blanket disenfranchisement; be it my feeling of powerlessness in the face of mega-corporations, my disgust with the stewardship of our country, or my broad ideological separation from American fundamentalism. I make work that delves into the realm of activism, not only to connect with individuals in provocative and meaningful ways, but also to recast my role in the system. I often put my work out into the world for chance interactions with people; this involves ad hoc installations and subversive infiltration of public and semi-public spaces, where the pieces are left to their own fate. I employ humor as a device for lowering a viewer's guard to the reception of difficult content."
