While at Socrates Sculpture Park, I immediately thought of another man-made park we had been spending a lot of time at – the High Line. At Socrates the water was so close, and the overall feeling was so quiet.


On monday night July 27th, five students from Eyebeam’s Digital Day Camp stayed late to investigate and participate in a music production workshop given by Jon. With help from his two interns D.V and Deeds, Jon took us on a crash course through the basics of music recording and production, spanning from from mic types  to production tricks to getting that perfect sound using different equipment. He pushed us to listen to music in an involved fashion, and we had to tune our ears to hear the subleties that made each song come together. After pouring through the information, we split into team to make quick songs using what we had learned. After around an hour of working both teams presented great and very different minute long demos.

Team 1 : Luis, D.V., Zoe, and Jade

Team 2: Spencer, Jon, Deeds, and Usman

Overall it was a great expirence and everyone learned a ton!


In this video you are able to see how we use our imagination with a little of creativity.Living in New York City we know how it is to travel and sometimes we know how it is to be in a hurry and get to the train on time, with this in mind, that was what became the motivation of how we used the space at the socretes sculpture park.


Through a hands-on choreography of fashion, technology and performance, Di Mainstone creates playful adornments that roam the body, hiding and revealing tales that are close to her heart. Di has collaborated with a range of artistic institutions, including the Banff New Media Institute, XS Lab, Montreal and most recently V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media, Rotterdam. Her wearable installations have been displayed internationally at conferences, exhibitions and festivals.

For the Eyebeam residency, Di will prototype a set of wearable structures that question both our sense of interconnectivity as well as our understanding personal space within the city environment.
