Lines don’t just separate; they also tie together the surfaces they split. This exhibition highlights five Eyebeam projects which probe at the porous boundary between the external and the internal, by examining how technologies make visible, audible or thinkable that which is normally hidden away inside.

Exhibition on view 11/19-12/20
Opening Reception: 11/19, 6-8PM
117 Beekman Street in Manhattan (Close to Titanic Park)
Open Tuesday – Sunday 12:00PM – 7:00PM
A subtly interactive installation by Kirschner and Ott allows visitors’ gestures to take on a material form in light and sound. Cheung’s dialogues with her family inventively adapt computer code for its storytelling power. Using natural elements, Brain creates sensory experiences from the wi-fi networks which surround us. Kreutzberger’s paintings interrogate and layer invisible connectivities, while Kogan and Chung explore tools for digital performativity.
These works are examples of technology in an expanded sense: they are physical and conceptual tools by which we navigate and ultimately transform our contexts. This show was preceded by the exhibition Outside/In, which sought to bring digital imagery into dialogue with physical architecture.
Robust programming accompanies this exhibition, and will all take place in the Seaport location at 117 Beekman Street.
