Security Patterns - Studio Visit Install

I just put up an installation of work at Eyebeam for Studio Visits. This is work I have been producing over the last 6 months. The work is primarily old found books cut with the laser cutter, as well as some laser cut drawings.

101 Current Projects

team meeting one. we spent all day tuesday to come up with this list of the 98 projects we were working on. since then i remembered 4 more

i’ve got 99 problems and… here they are. all spelled out on a white board.

 

This is a more readable diagram than the chicken scratch one I wrote last Friday.

This shows the Open Hardware modular component design for the custom LED projectors that I have begun  prototyping at Eyebeam.

The gray boxes are the mandatory components and the white ones are optional, depending on the design. The idea here is to let others come up with better battery systems and LED bulbs but still keep the structure of this project intact.

 

I’m excited to be one of the Resident Artists for Eyebeam this Fall along with the other artists: Diana Eng, Nora Ligorano & Marshall Reese, Rashaad Newsome and Marina Zurkow. Today marks the end of my first week: getting oriented, research, setting up my workspace and more — a real treat to be in Chelsea and part of an amazing organization that has funded and assisted so many artists as well as public programs for students and much more.

Day 3: Tues., July 14, 3–5PMNetworking and CollaborationNew media tools seem to make remote working and networking easier, but do they facilitate curating? How is the time-frame of collaboration­—between artists and curators or producers, or between the art and its audience—different when adopting open source methodologies (such as iterative or modular methods, sometimes called bootstrapping)? Discussions of the different shapes of collaboration and the tried and tested “rules” of good collaboration were ascertained.Guests: Amanda McDonald Crowley (Executive Director, Eyebeam) ; Patrick Lichty (Curator, Artist).Eyebeam respondent: Jon Cohrs (Resident, Eyebeam).Videography: Rus Garofalo

Day 5: Tues., July 21, 2009Evaulation and Audience EngagementThe last session of the curatorial masterclass series asked, who is participating in open curatorial projects? Why? How do we know what they’re getting out of it? What can be learned from the revisions/lifelines used in open source software generation and how can that way of thinking be applied to consideration of the “lifeline” of a curatorial project? What are other evaluation strategies that can be applied to curating, such as comment boxes or feedback forms? Obvious and proposed benchmarks of success were interrogated.Guests: Anne Barlow (Executive Director, Art in General); Hans Bernhard (Artist, Ubermorgen.com).Eyebeam respondent: Stephen Duncombe (Research Associate, Eyebeam) Videography: Rus Garofalo
