A number of Eyebeamers are participating in Picnic Salon, New York organised by Amsterdam's PICNIC gathering and the Waag Society, at the New Museum on Monday June 29,2009.

We'll be contributing to the closed Creative Workshop and Brainstorm session, bringing together Dutch and NYC Creative, discussing topics such as: What is the role of design and creative technologies in the future of our cities? Augmented, ubiquitous, real-time, broadband and smart technologies have a role in shaping the lives of many. What future will this lead to and how can we put these technologies to work for us? What is the shared agenda for Amsterdam and New York?

 

April 17: Sleep Dealer out in cinemas

Location: Los Angeles and New York
http://sleepdealer.com/

Sleep Dealer (by Eyebeam alum Alex Rivera) is a science-fiction, but has nothing do to with space aliens, or cops who shoot robots. It's a film of ideas, and it looks at the future from a perspective never seen before: from south of the border, looking at America from the outside. A.O. Scott of The New York Times says: SLEEP DEALER is "Exuberantly entertaining-a dystopian fable of globalization disguised as a science-fiction adventure … ." SLEEP DEALER is a thriller filled with lush visuals and big ideas about the future of war, immigration, the environment, and the border.

Go with a friend, or organize a group to support this film, and in the process support the idea of a more wild, diverse, and relevant cinema!
