Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2015 Awards: Celebrating Creativity and Courage in Art & Technology: Ayah Bdeir and Trevor Paglen.
Ayah Bdeir is being honored for enabling current and future generations to easily explore technology's creative potential and Trevor Paglen for helping citizens understand the profound magnitude of digital surveillance through a variety of media. Together, their creative and provocative work demystifies public understanding of technology.
Eyebeam is thrilled to be hosting this year’s Open Hardware Summit, bringing home a dialogue launched at Eyebeam with the Opening Hardware workshops in 2010. The one-day event features talks and panels on DIY biology, electronics, fashion and technology, digital fabrication, business and other topics by leaders in industry, academia, and the DIY community. Started in 2010 by Alicia Gibb and Ayah Bdeir (an Eyebeam alumnus), the Open Hardware Summit has grown to include more than 20 talks and breakout sessions aimed at empowering people to bring open-source principles into real-world products and projects.
