Eyebeam's Fall 2011 season is underway! On September 19, a few of Eyebeam's many residents and fellows gathered for an informal "pause work" to discuss their planned projects, exchanged ideas and suggestions, and enjoy one of the first cool days of fall. Fellows present were Mark Shepard, Mary Mattingly, and Taeyoon Choi. Carrie Mae Rose and Alex Chen, both new residents for the fall, were also in attendance, as were Roddy Schrock, Associate Director: Creative Residencies, and Kyle Kessler, Eyebeam Production Assistant.

 

I'll be joining an amazing group of artists for EFA Project Space's New York City Arts Workers Studio Residency. Launched by EFA Project Space in August 2010, the Studio Residency for New York City Arts Workers is the only residency of its kind, providing an opportunity for accomplished art professionals (administrators, curators, directors), who are artists in their own right, the space and encouragement to focus on their studio practice.

 

Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2011 Fall/Winter Residencies. Awards totaling $25,000 and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research, and fabrication studios have been awarded to 6 artists in the areas of performance, wearable technology, interactive installation, media art, and sonification/visualization.

Eyebeam’s residents are selected from two yearly open calls of emerging artists and creative technologists for a five-month residency, which includes a stipend as well as access to Eyebeam’s facilities, equipment, and opportunities for collaboration and development of work. This group of six residents was selected from a group of 176 applicants.

 

Join GAFFTA and Eyebeam in San Fransisco for a Sound Research Group meeting on August 3rd, 6–8PM. Thinkers and makers will be brought together in dialogue with the goal of stimulating new points of overlap and conversation around issues of both production and aesthetics.  Discussion will be centered around projects/initiatives that have grown out of the New York City group, new work by Bay Area artists, as well as a discussion led by Marc Weidenbaum, founder of disquiet.com, around sound-art remix projects he has curated and their intersection with #netlabel culture. 

This is a great opportunity to join the conversation and participate in an ongoing collaboration on developing dialogue around sound art on both the west and east coast.

Our most recent Fall Residents and Fellows have finished their vacations and are hard at work: Aram Bartholl, from Berlin, is preparing his Point of Vision project to engage the public at Eyebeam in late October. Stefani Bardin is in the house working on The Omnivore's Pleasure and other projects already begun through a collaborative residency with our farming partner upstate, Andes Sprout Society.
