• Electroluminescent Moleskine Notebook Hacking Workshop led by Diana Eng (Eyebeam Alumni)
Contemporary Art Students from the University of Huddersfield in the UK participate in a half-day interactive mask workshop led by Eyebeam X-Lab resident David Jimison, where students develop their own interactive masks that explore issues of online identity. During the workshop, students design and decorate their masks, and then wire them with LEDs and el wire. Through the maskmaking process and then interacting online while wearing them, students explore methods of augmenting online personas. At the workshop’s conclusion, students create a series of photographs for posting on various social networks, and engaging with people via video chat.
This was a private workshop, designed specifically for this visiting group. If you would like a workshop like this, email stephanie at eyebeam.org to inquire about costs and program structure.
