@Eyebeam I meander, would love an honorary residency, continuation of what I work on here, inner flesh, self-doubt, criticality, apotheosis of a Theory of Everythings: title of the book manuscript I'm working on. But I fit in awkwardly, unclear, problematic, messy; my connections are more to universities than digital media conferences or urban institutions. I do know I'm working more slowly than I'd like; the performances are occurring late in the residency, due most likely to family issues I couldn't control. My work deals more with internal psychic structures than anything else, theory without Lacan or Freud or Ettinger for example, so a kind of wandering that's at the heart of everything. My music/soundwork is the same - it's music without "music," I can't take a song or anything else for granted; every time I play it's an extension that could go horribly wrong and a lot of the resulting music is a suturing of that fragility - it's a kind of cover-up music.


Trained as a string musician, Alexander Chen uses HTML5 and Flash to build interactive virtual string instruments from source material as diverse as a Gibson Les Paul, the New York subway system and, most recently, a classical cello. visualizes the notes of the first Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suites as continuously shifting strings, and is the first part in a planned series of graphical representations of baroque music. By utilizing the mathematics behind string length and pitch, Alexander spotlights the underlying structure and subtle shifts in the musical piece. While at Eyebeam, he's part of a collaboration with New Visions to develop strategies for maximizing digital learning as a member of Digital Teacher Corps.


If you've got big ideas, could use a little time and money, not to mention support and inspiration, to create a visionary project, then go apply to our Summer/Fall Residency.  This is the last week of the cycle!

Residents are granted a $5,000 stipend and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's state of the art digital design and fabrication studios at their Chelsea facility.  Come work with us!


Last night we held a How To Apply - Eyebeam Residencies forum here in New York.  I expected maybe 30 people, but over 100 showed up.  It was a great chance for applicants to ask questions about the residency program.  A lot of commonly raised issues were ironed out, with insights provided by recent Residency Curatorial Panelist Robert Ransick (Bennington College, Vermont) and current Eyebeam Senior Fellow Steve Lambert (Parsons/The New School and Hunter College).  Thanks to them both, and Amanda, for taking the time out to help make the application process as clear as possible for everyone involved.
