This fall, NYC teens are invited to spend 5-weeks learning how to design games for mobile devices at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center. Teens will work in small groups and design their own location based mobile games using iPhones (iPhones will be provided for use during the workshop).

What if we could receive real-time feedback on our social interactions? I developed a system like this for myself using Amazon Mechanical Turk to explore in the form of a performance. During a month of continuous dates with new people I met on okcupid, I streamed the interaction to the web using an iPhone app. Turk workers were paid to watch the stream, interpret what was happening, and offer feedback as to what I should do or say next. These directions were communicated to me via text message.

I am feeling a great amount of social responsibility while doing simple tasks like buying urls and testing regulators. Think it's time for a walk by the river.

Paper, wood, and traditional media aren’t tied to one vendor. They don’t require licenses or agreements. They aren’t, generally speaking, incompatible. If digital art is going to provide artists with the same freedom, it stands to reason that artists working with computation will find ways to make any pixel their medium.

Processing is a good example. It takes some time, but eventually, the understanding dawns upon you: Processing is more a design for how to code, an API, than it is a specific platform. Taken further, heck, it’s more like a way of life – sketch on paper, write simple code, prototype fast, make something happen.

 

Join 16 NYC public high school students as they pitch their ideas for new apps for the mobile platform.

Over the course of 12 intense summer days, as part of Eyebeam's 11th annual Digital Day Camp program, these teens have worked with a team of experienced interaction designers to learn about all aspects of mobile technology. On our final day together, we will polish our ideas and translate them into a proper pitch - just for YOU: a mix of designers, developers, business leaders, mobile researchers, and more.

Our dream: One of you will help us turn our app ideas into reality! At the very least, we hope you will share your insights and feedback with us.

Upgrade! NY
April 27, 2009

We are pleased to announce that Upgrade! New York is now co-produced in collaboration with Brooklyn-based activist organization Not An Alternative, and will focus on topics related to open source activist and creative practices for the upcoming year.

This gathering took place at Not An Alternative’s storefront gallery space, The Change You Want To See, and featured a talk and video screening from the September 2007 Monk protests, known as the Saffron Revolution, in which mobile phones and the internet allowed protesters to coordinate and publicize the largest protests seen in a generation.

Co-presented by Not An Alternative and Digital Democracy
