Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2013 Spring/Summer Residencies and 2013 Fellowships, beginning in March. Residencies have been awarded to 7 artists and Fellowships have been awarded to 4 artists. The research-based practices represented by this cohort will focus on a broad spectrum of topics including web-based poetics; online information biases; Cyberfeminism and online art in the early 90's; and relationships to the virtual in everyday life. All incoming artists and technologists receive generous stipends and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research and fabrication studios.
Critical questioning of the status quo and a belief in progress are core values of Eyebeam. This has been demonstrated through 15 years of experimentation via creative use and misuse of technology with the goal to innovate and develop better relationships between people and tools. This incoming group of artists and technologists is a testament to Eyebeam's ongoing commitment to supporting work that involves community-interdependence and resourcefulness, learning, curiosity and creative exploration.
"The invitation extended to this group of innovators is the culmination of a months-long review process that rigorously and democratically works to select the most visionary and cutting-edge practitioners," says Roddy Schrock, Director of Programs and Residencies at Eyebeam. "This collection of artists and technologists are grouped together with the hopes that they will collectively spark off one another resulting in works that will help direct the future of creative technology and the arts".
We couldn't be more excited for them to start working in-house next month.
