Join us at Radical Networks for two days of speakers, panels and workshops designed to introduce the community to DIY networking. Learn how to create your own offline networks, portable web servers, mesh networks or internet gateways in hands on workshops. Attend panels where you can discuss your visions for how a localized network could support your school, your community, or your cause. Listen to speakers talk about the future of computer networks and why it’s important to understand how networks work in this age of hyper-connectivity.

PURCHASE TICKETS HERE. *Please note that general ticket does not include all workshops.  

From mass surveillance to the over-commercialization of the Internet, the technology that we depend upon for community and connection is being compromised. The recent accessibility of networking technology through devices such as the Raspberry Pi and software such as BATMAN Adv has made it affordable and possible for everyday citizens to learn how to design their own web servers and networks.


  • To understand how the technology can be used as a method of control and how to subvert that.
  • Teach people how to use networking technology for themselves.
  • Encourage creative and social exploration with computer networks.


  • Promoting free and open networks built with free and open hardware and software.
  • Decentralizing the control of where networks exist and what and whom are served by them.
  • Maintaining control of our own content, hardware, and means of deployment.
  • Community and free expression first.

Making Patterns

117 Beekman Street, Manhattan, NY

July 24 - September 17

Tuesday - Sunday 

12:00PM - 7:00PM

“Our bodies are our primary interfaces for the world… [Wearables] sit close to your skin, inhabit your clothing, and sometimes even start to feel like part of you.” - Kate Hartman, Director of the Social Body Lab, from her book Make: Wearable Electronics.

Eyebeam’s first exhibition at The Seaport features garments developed by multidisciplinary teams using a combination of new techniques and traditional craft. Many of the artists, technologists and designers involved have found novel ways to externalize inner feelings. Their work helps shape a future in which one’s inner self can be worn on the surface.

The exhibition includes work by Kaho Abe, Bo Kyung Byun, Ben Cramer, Billy Dang, Andrea van Hintum, May-Li Khoe, Danielle Martin, Hillary Sampliner, Cici Wu, and Jamie Sherman (Intel) in collaboration with the Social Body Lab (Kate Hartman, Jackson McConnell, Hillary Predko, Boris Kourtoukov, Izzie Colpitts-Campbell,  Erin Lewis, Rickee Charbonneau, and Alexis Knipping). 

Critically engaging with wearable technology, Making Patterns is part of Eyebeam’s Computational Fashion initiative, which includes residencies and master classes (organized in partnership with Shapeways). The exhibiting artists’ works spans disciplines and technical processes such as 3D printing, soft circuitry, embedded electronics and bio-sensing. The resulting patterns can change one’s relation to one’s body and others.


Schedule of Events:


  • 24 July / 6:00PM - 8:00PM



Other Events:

Computational Fashion is an Eyebeam initiative bringing together artists, fashion designers, scientists, and technologists to explore emerging ideas and develop new work at the intersection of fashion and technology. Learn more at http://fashion.eyebeam.org.

Born in Germany in 1972, Bartholl focuses on interrelations between the digital world and our physical surroundings. He obtained his degree in architecture from the University of arts in Berlin, where he lives and works. His artistic work has been shown in numerous festivals and exhibitions in museums and galleries. In 2011, five Dead Drops were part of the “Talk to me” exhibition at the MoMA in New York and a new facet of the project saw the day in 2013 with the installation of a DVD Dead Drop at Museum of the Moving Image in New York as well. Palais de Tokyo is the first French institution to welcome Dead Drops.

This is a newly created position that requires a combination of creativity, digital fabrication chops, coding know-how, some wood shop experience, great social/sometimes diplomatic skills, and excitement for the potential of bending machines to their limit in production of amazing new things that  only Eyebeam artists and technologists could dream up. The ideal candidate will be able to support Eyebeam's residents on a daily basis, as they complete projects and also also keep the machines running functionally and seamlessly. Additionally, they will be encouraged to focus on a creative practice that supports the growth of the whole organization’s understanding of technology’s potential and creative usage through research, presentations, organizing speakers, and group field trips. 

It requires adeptness with the following tools and areas:

- Laser Cutters

- 3D Printers

- CNC mill/ 3D Contact Scanner

- Single board computer interaction systems and software

- Wood shop with basic drills and saws

- Creative coding languages

- Occasional oversight and coordination of event production

The primary role in this position is to create a seamless work environment that encourages Eyebeam’s Residents’ usage of tools as well as raise awareness of their potential. It allows for experimentation and play as well as organizing and promoting group practice and learning. This is not a SysAdmin nor IT position, but it does require working with staff in identifying and implementing strategies for technology upgrades, including some grant-research, and on occasion deploying creative solutions for non-profit administrative efficiencies. The position also requires some interfacing with technology companies to secure licenses and cultivate sponsorships.

Please e-mail info@eyebeam.org with a cover letter and resume with the subject line "CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY MANAGER".
