Archival Research Intern
Internship position available: work with Eyebeam’s Curatorial Fellow to research and develop Eyebeam’s digital archive. 2012 marks Eyebeam’s 15th year in operation; we will be gathering data, media, and personal accounts about projects, research groups, exhibitions, performances, lectures/panels, and events that have taken place at Eyebeam during this time. We will be creating a major database of content that will eventually be translated into an online, user-friendly archive. The project will be ‘open source’, which means findings and details about our approach will be regularly discussed on Eyebeam’s blog. This position would be best for someone who has a sincere interest in the field of art and technology, and wants to learn more about Eyebeam’s rich history.
