Eyebeam student residents and co-curators Tahj Banks, Glen Moore, Jayquan Harris and Wandy Marcano present an evening of “Clip-Kino.” The content of the screening—also known as micro-cinema—was assembled during the Seeders ‘N’ Leechers ‘R’ Us #1 workshops led by Eyebeam resident artist Andrew Gryf Paterson. Micro-cinema refers to content downloaded from P2P online file-sharing networks; public screenings of the downloaded content—typically viewed in the context of “privacy”— are in this way shared with a larger peer group or community.

The theme of the screenings, Teen Mashup will be oriented towards the student residents’ personal interests and environments. Please note: Free popcorn!

The Change You Want To See gallery will host a collaborative workshop exploring the mashup and remix of audio-visual, social and architectural elements onsite, with local borough-based teenage participants and Eyebeam's educational partners. Each workshop participant will be invited to bring at least three clips to add to a pool of source material. We will consider site-specific “give and take”, and aim to develop “fair-use” guidelines for fellow participants and laymen.

VJ-ing, event-design and space-modification workshops will mix and remix the resources, talents, perspectives of all present, to create a performative party with live audio-visual manipulation, a juice-bar and dancing. As a public party for the Seeders 'N' Leechers 'R' Us outgoing process, thie evening endeavors to seed the imagination of possible futures.

We aim to develop an open model for self-organised “Clip Kino”: micro-cinema, which consists of content downloaded from P2P file-sharing online networks, and popular media sharing platforms.

The ambition is to organise events which drag aspects of the normalized ‘private’ activity of viewing downloaded content into public space for screening, appreciation and debate. The term ‘environmental awareness’ aims to include the social ecology of one’s interests, desires, and attentions in one’s peer-group and community.

Workshop sessions will explore creative file-sharing together in physical-material space, and extrapolate copyright left issues in youth/subcultural terms. Face-to-face facilitation is crucial here, while critical education of IP and public-private space issues is important. ‘Seeder’s N Leecher’s R US’ is intended as a statement of pride and empowerment.
