Support the Next Chapter of Risk-taking Art & Technology at Eyebeam

Since 1997, Eyebeam has fostered and promoted risk-taking work at the intersection of art and technology. Earlier this year, we announced exciting plans to move Eyebeam from its current Chelsea location, our home for the last 12 years, to a brand new facility in Brooklyn's Cultural District. This is a tremendous opportunity to revamp, rethink and revitalize our programs. During this time of transition we're asking for your support to carry us to the next level. Make a donation today!

This year we are thrilled to offer special gifts as a thank you to our donors:

$5 - $25: A digital copy of alumnus DJ/rupture’s remix of Lamin Fofana’s ‘Africans are Real’ made with his Sufi Plug In software

$50: A limited-edition set Eyebeam trading cards featuring our current Fellows and Residents

Start Date: 
12 Dec 2012

Eyebeam's Fall 2011 season is underway! On September 19, a few of Eyebeam's many residents and fellows gathered for an informal "pause work" to discuss their planned projects, exchanged ideas and suggestions, and enjoy one of the first cool days of fall. Fellows present were Mark Shepard, Mary Mattingly, and Taeyoon Choi. Carrie Mae Rose and Alex Chen, both new residents for the fall, were also in attendance, as were Roddy Schrock, Associate Director: Creative Residencies, and Kyle Kessler, Eyebeam Production Assistant.


Fellow Taeyoon Choi's Project Space exhibition Invisible _____ is an open platform for experimental workshops and performance, and is also an archive of his recent research and performance work. It uses Eyebeam's Project space as a laboratory for generating ideas, objects and actions for his new media performance Specters of the Riot, inspired by various riots, revolts, insurrections and social movements in urban spaces in the U.S. between 1965-1992.

Learn what drives sound manipulation and discover how different types of music evoke different emotions. Trace the power of an impactful pop hook in a song, measuring the way our brains and bodies react, down to the responses in our fingertips.
