Eyebeam is thrilled to announce its 2014 Spring/Summer Residents. Residents are provided with funds to complete a specific project during a five-month residency cycle beginning in mid-February. These select artists form the core of Eyebeam’s community by generating new work and presenting it to the public, resulting in a critical examination of social, political and aesthetic implications of technology.

In our Spring/Summer 2014 Residency Open Call, we focused the residency program on two lines of inquiry: 

1) Information Ownership Inside The Surveillance State —  Privacy has become a luxury,  and society is increasingly becoming divided between those who control information and those whose information is controlled. Eyebeam looks to support artists and technologists who are working to understand this situation more deeply and offer critique and solutions to the emerging dilemma

 

On July 1, 2014 Eyebeam will be moving to transitional space for approximately  two years, until its relocation in late 2016 to a new mixed-use building in the BAM Cultural District in Downtown Brooklyn. During this transition, Eyebeam is launching Eyebeam On The Move, a fellowship program designed to support artists’ technology-based projects that incorporate collaborative forms of architectural practice, urban presentation, policy engagement and other forms of meaningful community dialog.

Public Knowledge and Eyebeam are thrilled to announce the inaugural recipient of this first-of-its kind joint residency program: Elisa Kreisinger! Elisa will participate in an initial 2-week orientation and familiarization process at Public Knowledge's Washington, D.C. offices and then work at Eyebeam, with our community, facilities and equipment, to produce a new work that will have a clear relationship to both organizations’ shared issue areas.

Public Knowledge is a public interest advocacy organization in Washington, DC that seeks to ensure that copyright law and communications policy promote creativity, free speech, and democratic values.

 

We are thrilled to announce the 2013 Fall/Winter Residents! Since the organization's founding in 1997, Eyebeam has supported over 250 artists and technologists through its residency and fellowship programs. Residents are provided with funds to complete a specific project during five-month residency cycles in the fall and spring; Fellows are selected based on a body of work and given 11 months to develop their practice. These select artists form the core of Eyebeam’s community by generating new work and interacting with the public, resulting in a critical examination of social, political and aesthetic implications of technology.

 

Eyebeam is teaming up with the SPACE-run art centre, The White Building in London for a collaborative residency. The call is focusing on 5 provocative focus inquiries around art and technology, listed below.

1.What is the role of authenticity in the current creative situation? Digital technologies are built to reproduce themselves in perfect copies -- this is antithetical to notions of single authorship. What is authentic; can there be a single author anymore?

 

Apply now to become an Eyebeam Fellow! We are currently accepting proposals for the Eyebeam Computational Fashion Fellowship, a year-long opportunity to explore new ideas at the intersection of fashion and technology. 

The selected Fellow will be joining the Computational Fashion team in October 2013, and will receive a 12-month residency with stipend.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: MONDAY, JULY 8, 12PM (noon) EST.
