Mozilla and Eyebeam are pleased to announce the recipients of the Open(Art) Fellowship. The three selected fellows are Forrest Oliphant, Toby Schachman, and Nortd Labs (Addie Wagenknecht and Stefan Hechenberger). Together, these creative technologists will be exploring the frontier of art and the open web as part of our new Open(Art) program.Pushing the boundaries of creative code
Open(Art) is a joint initiative launched by Eyebeam and Mozilla to support creativity at the intersection of art and the open web. It is a unique opportunity for artists and technologists to collaborate on new work that catalyzes creative participation on a global scale. Selected artists and technologists will develop projects that push the boundaries of online or networked culture and address contemporary social challenges, while contributing to the community of practice around creative code.Three Open(Art) Fellows were selected from an open call for proposals, and awarded a $15,000 production budget and resources to develop their projects, including desk space and access to design, research, and fabrication studios at Eyebeam’s New York location. Selected projects will be featured though public events taking place in 2013.

Laser cutters are a key technology for making things.
Remember when people couldn't make their own videos, CDs or print out photos? Me neither (at least we try to forget). In many areas of media, the last century was quite the read-only culture where a few gatekeepers would sit on the means to produce everything. Not the best situation for creativity or for people with lots of cool ideas but no cash.
How can you help? Your pledge is what makes this project possible and the more funded the community, the faster we can make this happen.
