summer school

We are very excited for today's collaboration between teens from this year's Digital Day Camp (DDC) program, and teens from the Whitney Youth Insights Summer Intensive program. The two groups will be joining forces to work with Eyebeam Residents, Rebecca Bray and Britta Riley as part of their Window Farm design team. Today's workshop will ask the question - How can we start a window farming craze in NYC and beyond, using either offline or online resources?

Check out the DDC09 blog to see how it all turns out:

An initiative of Eyebeam’s Summer School program, the Curatorial Masterclass was led by Eyebeam research partner Sarah Cook from CRUMB, the online resource for curators working with media art. The series provided an opportunity for emerging and established curators of art to get together within a focused period of time to learn from each other’s practice, and to develop a greater understanding of curating, open source methods, and working in the public domain.

Double Take was an exhibition that showcased the interactive projects that resulted from an intensive two week program of workshops and seminars, Interactivos?@Eyebeam: Better than the real thing. All the works played with the idea of reality, disbelief and the illusions we experience in our technologically mediated lives. Double Take was curated in collaboration with Sarah Cook, Eyebeam's visiting curatorial fellow.

Presentation of the artists' projects took place on Saturday, July 12, 2009. Projects created by student artists from Digital Day Camp were added to the exhibition, and launched with a reception on July 29.

Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga approaches art as a social practice to establish dialogue in public spaces. As a child of immigrant parents and brought up in Nicaragua and San Francisco, Zúñiga’s awareness of inequality and discrimination was established at an early age. Themes such as immigration, discrimination, and the effects of globalization extend from highly subjective experiences and observations into works that tactfully engage others through populist metaphors while maintaining critical perspectives.

Artists have set out to start a window farm craze in NYC. Britta and Rebecca will work with agricultural, architectural and other specialists to create high-profile prototype window farms and means for sharing design ideas to meet varying local situations around the city. This project fits within the larger context of the artists' collaborative work: crowdsourced R&D solutions for environmental issues. Their inspiration for community involvement derives from concepts of local production (think of the coming network of 3-D multi-material printers), mass customization, and mass collaboration enabled by Web 2.0.

Through a hands-on choreography of fashion, technology and performance, Di Mainstone creates playful adornments that roam the body, hiding and revealing tales that are close to her heart. Di has collaborated with a range of artistic institutions, including the Banff New Media Institute, XS Lab, Montreal and most recently V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media, Rotterdam. Her wearable installations have been displayed internationally at conferences, exhibitions and festivals.

For the Eyebeam residency, Di will prototype a set of wearable structures that question both our sense of interconnectivity as well as our understanding personal space within the city environment.
