Stopwork for Eyebeam's 2011 Fellows, Residents, and Student Residents
On November 16, Eyebeam's fellows, residents, and student residents gathered in the main space together with staff to present their works in progress.
Honorary Resident Hsing Wei presented proposals from Digital Teacher Corps, a partnership between Eyebeam and New Visions for Public Schools. Fellow Mary Mattingly presented in-progress images of her Wearable Homes and Flock Houses, along with images of past projects.
Members of Eyebeam's Student Residency Program also presented proposals of projects they will create during their year-long residencies. The five high school students will work together with residents and fellows in Eyebeam's state of the art facilities to create works of art and technology through the media of video production, dance, activism, game design, and textile technology.
Eleanor Whitney, Program Officer of External Affairs and Fiscal Sponsorship at the New York Foundation for the Arts, was also on hand to discuss NYFA's resources for artists, including Artspire, a fiscal sponsorship program.
