My online collaborators Mushon-Zer Aviv and Jonah Bossewitch and I are leading off a day of workshops on online collaboration. I love that Jonah and I will be meeting in person for the first time, and that Mushon will be joining us via Skype. How online-collaborative is that!

Kai-Oi Jay Yung’s socially engaged practice splinters sculpture, video, performance; confronting participants with playful multi-sensory interventionist environments that reassess our migratory places and identities.  Central to her psycho-socio-political exchange is invaluable cross-pollination with experts   in marine biology to physiognomy, forging friendships to extend creative process to more inhabitants and contexts.
From sock as a weapon to address climate change and scant resources (Sock Exchange) to incantation of seer/savant Tarot role to mine the psyche of Marseille’s port flux and individual happiness scale (Tarot De Marseille); Yung’s first collaborative project with Eyebeam as part of the Urban Wilderness Action Center (UWAC) instigates a global urban wilderness campaign to fertilise our uninhabitable concrete spaces.

The Urban Wilderness Action Center (UWAC) is a project initiated by Eyebeam alum Jon Cohrs, in collaboration with the Eyebeam Student Residents, Eyebeam education coordinator Stephanie Pereira, and UK-based artist Kai-Oi Jay Yung. The UWAC project includes a web platform uwac.anewfuckingwilderness.com and a day of action where people from NYC, Berlin, Amsterdam and London will design and disseminate projects around the theme of "urban wilderness."

UWAC DAY is Saturday, March 20. Each of four lead cities will host a day of free artist-led interventions that respond to urban wilderness. We will document the day through a live Twitter, Flickr, and video feed streamed through the UWAC website.
