New concepts and emerging technologies have always had a significant effect on art, a fact that became almost endemic in the twentieth century. Whether it’s the emergence of cinema, video, or the internet, technology has become increasingly integral to artistic production. The Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, a non-for-profit space in Chelsea, is dedicated to exploring the continuously evolving relationship of contemporary art and design to technology. Often presenting a heterogeneous and even dizzying array of works, this space is always a fun visit. Now through January 29, Eyebeam will be presenting X-lab, an open house lab that lets the public sneak a peek into what the center's residents and fellows are up to. Featuring the work of Aaron Meyers, Brooke Singer, and Jacob Ciocci and numerous others.

Today is Tax Day. While most Americans think their tax bill is fair, many have no idea where exactly their hard-earned money goes. Let's face it, many leaders in government aren't so clear on how much tax money goes to all the different government-funded programs.

So Google and Eyebeam hosted a contest to find the best data visualization of where our tax money goes. Here are seven standouts. Think of them as visual receipts for your tax bill. One of them actually is, and it's pretty funny.

Anil Kandangath won $5,000 for his first place entry Where Did My Tax Dollars Go?, an extremely easy to use visual calculator of government spending.


Infographic Of The Day: Where Did Your Tax Dollars Go?
Announcing the winner of the Data Viz Challenge, run by Eyebeam and sponsored by Google.

Today's tax day! Get excited, people! Just kidding. Everyone hates paying taxes, we know. But at least this year, tax day comes hand in hand with a superb infographic. And not just any infographic; rather, the grand-prize, $5,000 winner of the inaugural Data Viz Challenge, run by Eyebeam with sponsorship from Google (and which we helped judge).

Tomorrow night, Eyebeam presents its quarterly showcase for audiovisual performance and interactive art, and they’ve decided to go “back to the future”. Referencing early-Internet cosmology and architecture, artists including Ryder Ripps, Aaron Meyers, King Britt, Fever Creative, Thunder Horse Video, and more will present an immersive environment consisting of video, music, design, and fashion. The result? Mixer: Past Futures, “an alternate version of our own current reality, reflecting what was and what could be.” The party will go from 9PM until 2AM and should be enough to satisfy your technolust from here to e-ternity. Artist Ryder Ripps was kind enough to text us cell phone pictures of the install from his 30GB Zune HD Pro. To see a bit of what’s in store, check out the images below.

“I Scream,” at Eyebeam NYC
Posted by: mikelee on Mar 21, 2011

This past Saturday at the Eyebeam Art + Technology center, I was invited by Stefani Bardin and Brooke Singer to present at their Counter Kitchen event series. The Counter Kitchen brings in guests to deconstruct items that are in the mass marketplace and often have chemical ingredients of questionable nature. ...

Yesterday Mike Lee of Studiofeast (previously) taught us how to build the perfect ice cream. I’ve never been to an event at The Counter Kitchen. I really enjoyed the format, particularly the emphasis on exploring industrially-processed foods in comparison to the craft of home-cooking.

Here Mike delves into the myriad ingredients of Breyer’s vanilla and explains what we should keep, replace with other ingredients, or (most likely) skip altogether. And he reveals the formula for fail-proof ice cream base: 66% milk, 12% heavy cream, 15% sugar, 7% egg yolk … and then of course flavor, which is entirely up to you.
