This fall, NYC teens are invited to spend 5-weeks learning how to design games for mobile devices at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center. Teens will work in small groups and design their own location based mobile games using iPhones (iPhones will be provided for use during the workshop).
As part of X-Lab, Eyebeam Resident Tahir Hemphill has organized a Rap Research Group. The group - made up of enthusiasts, historians, creative technologists, cultural critics, linguists, teachers, MC's and academics - will meet to discuss various topics: quantifying art & metaphor, data visualization, internal / external cultural analysis, gaming, curriculum design and more.
The Research Group will meet on Wednesdays at 7PM beginning December 1.
An exhibition curated and organized by Eyebeam, Not An Alternative, and Upgrade! NY
Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, in collaboration with Upgrade! NY and Not An Alternative, is pleased to present Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus, an exhibition which examines models of participation and participation as a model in art and activism.
