This is a monthly game testing event for independent game developers and enthusiasts run by former Eyebeam fellow Kaho Abe and Come Out & Play. The focus will be on play-testing, open dialogue and discussion around games in development.

This monthly meeting is a great opportunity for game developers to get valuable feedback for projects in progress. For game enthusiasts, these events are a place to learn more about the game development process, techniques and systems behind games. The goal of these monthly meetings is not only to encourage and nurture the development of high quality games through testing and discussion, but also to create opportunities for game testers, players and enthusiasts to become more engaged and active in the game development community.

The facilities and surroundings of Eyebeam make it an ideal place to test a variety of games -- from analog to digital, from street to computer games, from board games to art games, and more. Some things that maybe available during the event, depending on ongoing gallery events, include: projector, speakers, mixer, computer stations (Mac) with Internet, Wi-Fi, large indoor space, sidewalk space, various public parks in the area including the High Line and public areas by the pier (see map).

Events are scheduled every third Saturday, 2:00PM-5:00PM.

Utopic visions of communications have suggested  that technology would alter the way we worked together - bringing us closer, allowing for new forms of intimacy to burgeon. While this is many respects true, the over-saturated sphere, which involves one being 'connected' has shifted the nature in which we are able to engage with one another. How then do we form a framework for collaboration? This talk seeks to consider what it means to collaborate with artists, curators, writers, and institutions in a networked era, where conflict can be transposed across epic distances at the click of a button. As arts practitioners, we seek to ask: should we collaborate, and if so, why, and what is the best practice that we can adopt? 


This talk is part of a public reception for the recipient of the inaugural residency collaboration between The White Building and Eyebeam. 

Speakers include: Kristin Lucas and Joe McKay, Artists; Ramsey Nasser, Artist; Sarah Perks, Artistic Director, Cornerhouse, Manchester; Omar Kholeif, Curator, Writer and Editor and Head of Programming The WhiteBuilding, London, and Roddy Schrock,  Director of Programmes and Residencies, Eyebeam.

At the intersection of visual art, performance, and cinema, Man with a Projector presents a rare chance to see important historic works and new film and video performances by Malcolm Le Grice and Guy Sherwin, two artists associated with The London Film Makers’ Co-operative. The Co-op - a group of British experimental filmmakers active in the 1960s and 70s–radically transformed the dialogue around the cinematic experience. In an atmosphere of dynamic debate and daring experimentation, the group challenged the illusionistic tradition of cinema and insisted on more active, participatory experiences, focusing their attention on film projection as a live event, and often employing multiple screen projections, live filmmaking, performances, and installations. For Man with a Projector, Malcolm Le Grice will collaborate with musician Keith Rowe, while Guy Sherwin will present a work conceived in tandem with artist Lynn Loo. 

Trained as painters, at the Plymouth Art College followed by the Slade School of Fine Art in London for Malcolm Le Grice (b.1940, UK), and at Chelsea School of Art for Guy Sherwin (b. 1948, UK), both artists turned their attention to film in the 1960s and joined the London Filmmaker’s Co-op workshop. Their films draw attention to the structural components of the cinematic experience such as time, light, and celluloid. Both artists have recently taken part in Shoot Shoot Shoot (Tate Modern, 2002) and A Century of Artists’ Film and Video (Tate Britain, 2003-4). Sherwin recently curated Film in Space at the Camden Arts Centre in 2012 — showcasing the experimental film and digital media pioneers of Britain in the 1970s and 1980s. Keith Rowe (b. 1940, UK) is a free improvisation prepared guitarist and painter. Singapore-born, London-based artist Lynn Loo studied at the Chicago School of the Art Institute.

Man with a Projector is a Performa Project co-presented with Eyebeam Art + Technology Center. Curated by Charles Aubin.

I installed a 20ft wide by 9ft scoreboard that says "Capitalism Works for Me!" in Times Square and passers by could vote true or false.

We are releasing clips from each day the sign is in Times Square. A longer, more polished video will come later, but these are a few snippets collected on October 8th.
