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).
Opening Day: Saturday, September 6, 12pm - 5pm @ Governor's Island: House 15
Eyebeam artists are presenting work in an environment that feels as though it is from another era. Eyebeam Off-The-Grid, on Governors Island, is an exhibition to critically investigate cultural change and emergent technologies within a situation far outside the urban comfort zone of wired high-speed life. The island is without a dedicated internet connection or much cell phone coverage and is accessed only by ferries which run on the hour. It is the perfect place for Eyebeam to go unplugged!
A series of conversations between Eyebeam residents and fellows exploring how art and new tools can interrogate one another but also converge in creative exploration.
The Subnodes project is an open source initiative focused on streamlining the process of setting up a Raspberry Pi as a wireless access point. Join Sarah to learn how to distribute content, media, and shared digital experiences via Raspberry Pi. The device behaves as a web server, creating its own local area network, and does not connect with the internet allowing for creative invention not possible elsewhere.
