Commission exhibition, Tourists and Travelers last day; Taeyoon Choi will give a guided tour with Camerautomata Charlie and the Tourist Photography Club.


Artist Andrew Mahon, whose work is included in the Double Take exhibition, will demonstrate his project digitallyFit, which allows you to modify your body image in real time. He will talk about the digital representation, and misrepresentation of self, from the most banal mediums such as the buddy icon, through the more descriptive yet revealing Second Life.

New Eyebeam resident artist Adrianne Wortzel will present her works demonstrating the persistence with which humans imbue machines with souls - and maybe vice versa - in a talk entitled, The Uncanny Alley: Fun House Reflections of Humans and Machines.

This will be followed by Blinking Lights and Belief Systems. In this talk, Eyebeam senior fellow Jeff Crouse will discuss boozBot, a robot co-created with Eyebeam production lab fellow David Jimison, that serves both hard alcohol and witty banter to patrons. boozBot engenders particular responses in people based upon their own conceptions on technology. The aesthetics of boozBot rely upon cultural myths about robots, and allow people to engage in a performance with the robot, in which they uncover their own assumptions about technology.


The eteam (Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger) for Upgrade! New York’s August event.

eteam will discuss the construction of alternate realities via audience participation (intentional or unintentional) within their various projects. In addition, a special guest and a performance/game will set the scene for vibrant dialogue.



Eyebeam senior fellow Geraldine Juárez is recruiting a team for her Light-mobs, during Conflux Festival 2008. The Light-mobs are flash-mob style actions where communication between participants happens in morse code, using the Pocket Lightcoder and sunlight to transmit information.

The workshops are at Eyebeam (Sept. 6 + Sept. 7), and the action will be at the Conflux Festival weekend (Sept. 13 + 14).



Join us at 4pm on Saturday when R&D OpenLab fellow Ayah Bdeir will hold a runway show of her and Luma Shihab-Eldin's Syrian-style technologically hacked lingerie on the street in front of Eyebeam.

In conjunction with Conflux Festival 2008, Eyebeam alum JooYoun Paek leads a workshop on how to make your own Self-Sustaining Dress, a dress made out of polyethylene, connected to shoes that pump air into an inflatable bubble attached to its rear part on each step. The dress slowly transforms into a chair with each step and holds the person to sit on it naturally.
