Through an eBay purchase, eteam (a collaboration between Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger) became the landlords of a 36,000-square-foot plot of land in Germany with eight remaining tenants and seven feral lots. After receiving complaints from their tenants about the lack of access to water, eteam suggested they dig a well. When the tenants rejected this idea, eteam decided to search for water in different ways, using this exploration as both a motif and a vehicle for motion and creation. How do you look at the field as water? How do you produce water? And how do you make it visible? eteam sought to change people’s perspectives of the land. Do you still complain about the lack of water if you have the ocean around you? "If the dancing gets too stiff…" is a five-channel video installation that shows snippets from this social, mental, and metaphysical experiment. "If the dancing gets too stiff…" is also part of eteam's larger project OS GRABELAND.

"Creatomatic" is a piece of software designed to accelerate the imagination and prompt new inventions. It works by randomly juxtaposing diagrams of two everyday objects from a selection of hundreds. Through free association, the two objects can prompt the invention of an entirely new object, which can be practical or nonsensical. Inspired by the accidental nature of creativity, the "Creatomatic" uses the technique of surprise to overcome habitual ways of thinking and short circuit rational control.

Dying for the Other, is part of Eyebeam Artist in Residence Beatriz da Costa's Cost of Life series.

It is a video triptych addressing the shared suffering between the mice used in breast cancer research and humans afflicted with the same disease. For this video, da Costa combined documentation of her own life with footage of a breast cancer research facility in New York City. All filming for this project took place over the course of the summer of 2011.


Dying for the Other is on view in the Eyebeam Project Space from October 25th - November 13th. The Project Space at Eyebeam is an informal venue for our Residents and Fellows to exhibit and workshop their work. This project was made possible with additional support from the Creative Capital Foundation.

Presenter: Jay Bachhuber from the Public School New York's class on Civil Disobedience in 21st century

Moderator: Eyebeam Fellow, Taeyoon Choi

This workshop will investigate the theory, strategy, tactics and goals of modern non-violent protest. The program will review the logic and tactics of civil disobedience campaigns from the past century in order to understand how methods have changed to respond to and to stay ahead of state counter-protest efforts. Recent and near term advances in technology, including the risks and rewards of social networking platforms and mobile technologies, will also be discussed. Additionally, we’ll look at the current legal environment for civil disobedience, how protest has changed with the War on Terror, and what legal and economic risks protesters face.

Fellow Taeyoon Choi's Project Space exhibition Invisible _____ is an open platform for experimental workshops and performance, and is also an archive of his recent research and performance work.

The space is constructed in the shape of a dodecagon, where each wall is a movable billboard that can be arranged according to the events taking place in the space. The billboards function as both screens and set pieces, and are made up of Choi's drawings and photographs. A platform in the shape of a dodecagon at the center of the installation is used as a stage during performances and workshops, and to display artworks when not activated.

In the Counter Kitchen (TCK) we will be turning things upside down from the inside-out. Science and marketing have made product labels nearly impossible to decode. Learn how to reverse engineer your favorite food, personal care and household products using TCK tools and measurement systems. We will simultaneously turn you into a translator, detective, chemist and cook. Stop by to take a whiff, stay a while to help us in the kitchen or bring a product for us to explore.

The Week in Review (2010) by Resident Andrew Demirjian maps the stock price fluctuations of the three largest companies in the music industry to musical notes and visuals. The piece highlights the role of the global marketplace in music by reversing the traditional industry relationship that turns speculations on music into money; instead it turns speculations on money into music. The Week in Review is an interactive audiovisual projection that participants can play through a turntable and LED clock interface. When the piece is not being played there is a program mode that creates patterns from the week of data.
