Digital Day Camp

DDC 2007 focused on taking art and actions to the streets. Students engaged in urban research in the form of public interactions and street art. Participants studied the techniques, politics and groups involved in executing such projects, and learned about the practice and theory behind participatory actions, art, and activism. DDC students developed individual and team projects derived from their communities and lives. At the conclusion of each week of DDC; the projects were be displayed in an evolving 5-week long exhibition alongside the projects installed in Eyebeam’s 10 year exhibition.
