Digital Day Camp 2009 students engage in lectures and hands-on workshops focusing on art and technology tools, careers in the field, and relevant social and artistic topics. Through their investigations, they will have the opportunity to research current themes in arts and technology, and develop their own project in response to what they discover.
Final projects are promoted through Eyebeam’s website, and through a final public event on Tuesday, July 28, from 6–8pm on 19th St between 10th and 11th Ave, beneath the Highline.
This summer’s theme focused on creative activism in an urban environment. Students worked with urban planners, software designers, activists, video artists, and even a couple of activist gardeners to dig a little deeper into the fabric of our city, to learn more about how can creatively activate it, and how we can use art and technology to change it for the better. Each student has been selected for their special talents as visual artists, writers, musicians, dancers, or performers to contribute to a final project.
