2015 Annual Showcase

Opening Reception Thursday, January 29th, 6-8PM

Please note this exhibition will take place in DUMBO, Brooklyn at Gallery 216, 111 Front Street

Eyebeam's 2015 Annual Showcase will highlight innovative works produced at the organization throughout 2014. The Showcase celebrates Eyebeam artists’ preeminence in technology-based art and creative platforms. It will also provide the public an opportunity to engage directly with the artists and creative technologists during a day of public conversation on Saturday, February 21st, 2015 (full schedule to be announced). 

Each year, the organization selects artists and technologists for its residency and fellowship programs through a highly competitive open call. Artists are awarded a generous stipend, access to Eyebeam’s fabrication tools and working space, and the opportunity to interact with the public through installations, exhibitions, performances, symposia and workshops. This year’s Annual Showcase is the first since the organization moved to its new Brooklyn home in Sunset Park.

Featured Artists:

Allison Burtch, Atul Varma & Chloe Varelidi, Ingrid Burrington, James Bridle, Joanne McNeil, MSHR, Nancy Nowacek, Not An Alternative, and Torkwase Dyson.

This discussion will consider what it means to consent to share data online and to what extent digital literacy ascribes responsibility. In an essay for Model View Culture, Betsy Haibel considers online permissions through the lens of what anti-rape activists call  “enthusiastic consent.” The hidden “opt-out” boxes, deceptive links, and hard to find unsubscribe buttons assert developers know better than users "what their boundaries are.” Often a user is given an implicit deal, for example the tradeoff of surrendering personal data in exchange for free services. Topics discussed under the misleading rubric “revenge porn,” spanning privacy, first amendment rights, extortion law, sex, and surveillance, likewise begin with the absence of consent. Consequently, users may be blamed for a breach in their personal privacy. The women targeted in the celebrity photo hack scandal last August were criticized for taking nude photos in the first place, although Apple failed to secure iCloud from “brute force” programs and online publishers posted these photos without their consent. This discussion will consider user consent as a guiding principle of internet freedom. 

This event will have on-site CART (Communication Access Real-Time Translation) service thanks to our sponsor MailChimp.

Panelists: Sarah Jeong, Karen Levy, Alice Marwick

SOLD OUT!

We share our regular world with billions of bacteria and fungi, but are for the most part unaware of how they shape our world -- unless we get sick.  What if you could make a wearable biosensor that showed you in real-time how your own body's ecosystem works in concert with the environment?

Join The Cotard Syndicate for this workshop, where you will learn about their research and explore the growths through special microscopes; then make a biosensor that you can wear, track, and read the data collected from your micro- and macro-ecosystems.

MATERIALS (included in workshop fee)

- 3D-Printed Holder

- Agar

- Amber Glass Bottle with Dropper

- Leather Cord for wearing sensor

- Chia or Radish Seeds

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS & PROJECT

M(y)Crobes is a project by The Cotard Syndicate, comprised of neuroscientist Siddharth Ramakrishnan, PhD and media artists and Eyebeam alumni Stefani Bardin and Toby Heys. The project explores our cohabitation with microbes that live within, on and around us.  The project aims to bring these organisms to the forefront by culturing them, allowing us to see how they directly impact a living being like a small plant, while also showcasing the variety of microbial cultures that we may encounter/host everyday.  These cultured microbes will actively affect the growth of seedlings placed in the agar-wearable, thereby allowing us to observe how these ubiquitous life forms actively affect life and growth by altering environments.

This workshop is in conjunction with Eyebeam's Computational Fashion initiative. 

Please note: An optional follow-up meeting will be scheduled during this workshop for an opportunity to bring back your biosensor and learn how to read your M(y)crobes data.
