Eyebeam Fellow Kaho Abe worked with Australian students from Christ Church Grammar School to learn about potato voltage and current and how to boost either of these to create tone generators. They also used transistors, dials, and photo resistors to create other tone generators for a unique orchestral experience.  At the end of the workshop. students participated in a Potato Orchestra using the devices they created.




Eyebeam's annual Summer School program offers a lively mix of youth programs, master classes, public lectures, & hands-on workshops. This year’s program has been organized as part of our upcoming exhibition Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus which will "examine models of participation and participation as a model, presenting work that encourages subversive participation, intervenes into existing systems, or envisions new alternatives."

Program offering includes:


Eyebeam Fellow Aaron Meyers and students at the drop-in program began a two-week coding endeavor to create the classic Pong game in Processing.  Using the logic & coding language learned in previous weeks, students created the fundamental elements of the game, including the pong ball, velocity, and bouncing.  Other game-mode features like gravity, pull, and interaction with a user's mouse defined the interactive possibilities that Processing has to offer. Next week, we'll be continuing work with the Pong game by creating more interactive elements.

There's only one week left! Be sure to check out the amazing finale to this month's workshop into the free, open source programming language Processing next Thursday at 4pm.

As our time closes at Eyebeam (for now!) we're getting a little teary-eyed, but want to finish our residency here SUPER STRONG.

As of right now, I do have a concept for a project-- It's called SO STEREOTYPICAL!!1

It's a comedic way to talk about racism and stereotypes that are placed on the citizens (or illegal aliens FROM OUTER SPAAACE) here in America. I don't know how I'm going to execute this idea, but I'll figure out some way to get it done. Or maybe I'm just being super secretive and won't tell you, dear reader, because I don't want you to steal my idea.

Whatever floats your boat.

I'm working with caraballo-farman on Object Breast Cancer, I believe materializing these tumors in either photoshop and/or 3D studio Max. Their website is right hurrr: It's super cool, and you should check it out.

Today, we (the student residents) continued our meeting series that has been going on for the past week or two. We have been meeting with the new artists working at Eyebeam. So far we have talked to Kaho Abe (Fellow), Ted Southern (Resident), Tahir Hemphill (Resident), and Dustyn Roberts (Resident), who are all doing amazing work. But today we met with Jacob Ciocci, a new fellow. He showed us some of his old work, along with some of his projects he is going to be working on at Eyebeam, and to say the least his work is intense. As he explained to us, he enjoys working with color, especially the neons of the '80's, and uses remixed VHS tapes to make his audience investigate certain ideas which straddle of the border of cliche and meaningful. But his work is not limited to video; he has published 'zines, books, paintings, music, and the list continues. Below is a sample of his work.


Today in Girls Eye View, we looked at some examples of artwork that is created by asking others questions, and then capturing the responses via photos. We then talked about what some of our personal questions are, and then created signs featuring some the questions that trouble us, or questions that we think are important.
