Why does a minor chord sound sad? Is there a formula for the perfect hit? Whistling, dancing, finger-snapping, and toe-tapping—what makes us do it? Find out when music and science join forces in an interactive bazaar of beats, sounds, and rhythm in the exhibition BIORHYTHM, created by the Science Gallery and presented at Eyebeam as part of the World Science Festival. 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.

Gallery hours: 12noon-6pm, Tuesday - Saturday until August 6.
Tours: 2PM and 4PM, Fridays and Saturdays.

What happens when we use a brand's code to distribute our own message?

Activist group GAIA will be collaborating with Hacking Couture in this workshop.

Hacking Couture is a platform for launching new fashion creations through an open source approach of reverse engineering fashion brands and making the code available online. Hands on workshops encourage participants to create using the codes regardless of their level of fashion knowledge, and to engage in the larger fashion conversation. By understanding the coding of established fashion, this project provides a platform to empower participants to step up and create.

Join 16 NYC public high school students as they pitch their ideas for new apps for the mobile platform.

Over the course of 12 intense summer days, as part of Eyebeam's 11th annual Digital Day Camp program, these teens have worked with a team of experienced interaction designers to learn about all aspects of mobile technology. On our final day together, we will polish our ideas and translate them into a proper pitch - just for YOU: a mix of designers, developers, business leaders, mobile researchers, and more.

Our dream: One of you will help us turn our app ideas into reality! At the very least, we hope you will share your insights and feedback with us.

 
Summer School '09 participants Steve Lambert, Stephen Duncombe, and Laura MacCleery mingle after a long day of thinking, making, and sharing.

Eyebeam's annual Summer School program offers a lively mix of youth programs, master classes, public lectures, & hands-on workshops. This year’s program has been organized as part of our summer 2010 exhibition Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus showcases work that subverts existing systems or envisions new alternatives to the ways in which individuals can take part, or choose not to take part, in social and cultural life.
