Choosing Eyebeam as the venue for Xlab 2011 underscores the event's focus on emerging technologies and how they are increasingly shaping our sense of place, says Wolke. "Eyebeam's mission to promote the role of new media in our culture syncs with our goal to share how new media and technologies may be game-changers in the design of physical spaces," she added. "And Xlab participants will enjoy Eyebeam's amazing venue in Chelsea."

New concepts and emerging technologies have always had a significant effect on art, a fact that became almost endemic in the twentieth century. Whether it’s the emergence of cinema, video, or the internet, technology has become increasingly integral to artistic production. The Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, a non-for-profit space in Chelsea, is dedicated to exploring the continuously evolving relationship of contemporary art and design to technology. Often presenting a heterogeneous and even dizzying array of works, this space is always a fun visit. Now through January 29, Eyebeam will be presenting X-lab, an open house lab that lets the public sneak a peek into what the center's residents and fellows are up to. Featuring the work of Aaron Meyers, Brooke Singer, and Jacob Ciocci and numerous others.

From October 26, 2010 - January 29, 2010, Eyebeam Art + Technology Center’s main exhibition space is transformed into X-Lab, an open lab environment where we share the ongoing research and practice of our residents and fellows, and offer opportunities for deep public engagement.

Much as an unConference favors a flexible, participant-driven format that values energetic dialogue over talking head presentations, X-Lab might be described as an unExhibition where, rather than present finished works, we provide a space for critical reflection on and participation in the research and production processes at Eyebeam.

She is currently investigating Community User Experience Design- that is how do design for the experience of many. She's currently working on creating online and offline conversation around this subject involving data scientists, startup founders, and anthropologists. Comparing online and hyperlocal communities, Tikva is researching the experience of new members in a new social service, the quality of interactions between members, and ways to enhance participation through the design of community assets. As a technologist Tikva consults with startups and brands, both strategizing and implementing launches and development for online, mobile, community-driven and hyperlocal products.
