As part of Interactivos?, and in preparation for the opening of the exhibition Double Take, we present a lecture on how artists and audiences consider interactivity, led by Professor of New Media, Beryl Graham. Examples of high and low-tech projects in gallery and publically-sited contexts will be shown, and a rousing discussion with artists based on their own experiences will follow.
This evening is in conjunction with Eyebeam research partner CRUMB, the resource for curators of new media art, based in the UK.
Double Take was an exhibition that showcased the interactive projects that resulted from an intensive two week program of workshops and seminars, Interactivos?@Eyebeam: Better than the real thing. All the works played with the idea of reality, disbelief and the illusions we experience in our technologically mediated lives. Double Take was curated in collaboration with Sarah Cook, Eyebeam's visiting curatorial fellow.
Presentation of the artists' projects took place on Saturday, July 12, 2009. Projects created by student artists from Digital Day Camp were added to the exhibition, and launched with a reception on July 29.
