Depth sensing cameras like the Kinect are not only revolutionizing gaming and interactive media, but also have potential for exploring new cinematic techniques. Join us at Eyebeam to learn and create new experiments with the RGBDToolkit, an open source software application for depth enabled filmmaking. By augmenting a high definition video camera with a depth sensor, the toolkit captures the scene as colorful three dimensional forms. A computer graphics and video hybrid, the data can then be manipulated algorithmically and visualized from new perspectives in post.
Opening reception: February 21, 6–8pm in the Eyebeam Bookstore
This installation coincides with Gimme More: Is Augmented Reality the Next Medium?
From February 19 to March 2, Eyebeam alumnus Benton-C will make painterly video portraiture of incoming Eyebeam Bookstore visitors using old-school video gear. Sitters will be altered using hacked wedding video mixers and TiVos that have been wired together, lit by video projection. Past results of Benton-C's project have been compared to the Andy Warhol film portraits in Chelsea Girls. The analog portraits are recorded straight to VHS T-5 tapes. As each T-5 is filled, it's added to a stack of tapes that anyone can pop into a VCR to play for the duration of the exhibition.
Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2013 Spring/Summer Residencies and 2013 Fellowships, beginning in March. Residencies have been awarded to 7 artists and Fellowships have been awarded to 4 artists. The research-based practices represented by this cohort will focus on a broad spectrum of topics including web-based poetics; online information biases; Cyberfeminism and online art in the early 90's; and relationships to the virtual in everyday life. All incoming artists and technologists receive generous stipends and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research and fabrication studios.
