student residents

Makes things clear.

I've been working with Dustyn, creating rave sheep and party gears. Dustyn is writing a book for Artists, based on her classes she led and NYU, I believe. So while she's feverishly typing away on her computer, talking to her putter-togetherers for her book, she's been working with me, mentoring me in the vast land of robotics. She has been helping me understand how simple machines work. 
It has been a pleasure working with Dustyn, for making time for a high school student who cannot even understand how gears work and really dedicating time: however small, I really appreciate. She made gears not as complicated as it is. (Which it's not. It just takes me a little longer than normal people.) 
Here's the crazy rave sheep that hops!


Hey Eyebeam...I have to introduce you to my new friend Justin! I've known him for a while and then we kind of went off the radar. Well anyway, it turns out Justin has been up to a lot lately. He's staring in Glee in the upcoming season, as a new transfer student to the school who joins the Glee club. He also is the potential love interest for Fin...(no one's sexuality is safe next season). Justin was also cast in two upcoming movies, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, and perhaps the most anticipated movie/movies of the decade, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows parts one and two!  

Justin also models, and is so amazing at it too! 
You can follow him on Twitter: JustinKohrs , and he'll answer all your questions! 

Start Date:

Join us as we celebrate a year of working with wonderful Student Residents Caroline Spivack, Jade Highleyman, Luther Cherry, Spencer Brown, and Zoe Penina Baker. The students will share the different projects they have worked on over the course of their 11-month tenure at Eyebeam, first as DDC students, and since September 2009, as Student Residents. There will be snacks galore, cheering, and some serious reflecting!


Today was the last workshop in electronic music production.  Students completed 2-4 minute songs that feature beats, harmonies, and effects in LMMS, Audio Mulch, and Audacity. Students were introduced to the fundamentals of beat creation, loops, sampling, special effects, and began incorporating their work into layered compositions from week-to-week. Here are some pics from today's workshop and mp3 song examples - check it out!

Next week begins a new workshop -- for the first 3 weeks in June, Dan Walmsley, and Gabriella Coleman will explore online cultures and social networks through the groundbreaking programs of the modern Internet. It's shaping up to be an awesome program, so don't miss it!  You can RSVP right now!

It's come the time for the wonderful BLOGPOST TIME.
I've been working with Abhu and Leo for the past two weeks, and I've been photoshopping their images onto shirts and chiz.
It's been fun, but it's time for this old dog to find a new bone! (If you know what I mean.)


It has been a quiet day at Eyebeam today, with Luther and Zoe offsite working on Luther's fashion show, and Spencer (hacking away at DJ Hero) and Jade (making small machines with Dustyn) TOTALLY absorbed in what they are up to.

Tonight we gathered at Eyebeam to load up on our senior fellows' pro skills before they leave us this summer... (sniff). Here was the agenda:



Last Thursday was our first session in Electronic Music Production in LMMS.  Musician and writer Jace Clayton (aka DJ/rupture) introduced students to the free, cross-platform software for music production. Students dove right in to creating custom beats, utilizing instrument tracks, and began creating compositions of their own design. There was a wide range of interests from mixing tracks, creating instrumental harmonies, to sampling... and you can listen to some of the amazing work here! Jace will be talking about sampling, FX processing, compositional elements, and other music production techniques in the remaining workshops this May.

The drop-in program runs every Thursday from 4-6PM. Doors open at 3PM.
