Jerry is a self-taught designer from Mexico City currently based in Brooklyn. She was introduced to a Quadra 660 AV at an early age, which led to a career in the visual effects industry. She spent years working on corporate projects until she was granted a fellowship at Eyebeam in 2002 to pursue a more thoughtful approach to video post-production. In 2006 she returned to Eyebeam as a senior fellow in the Production Lab, where her practice evolved to embrace code, electronics and waste to create low-tech objects to survive the end of the world. Jerry is also one-half Forays.

Robert Ransick, a NYC-based artist and cultural producer, will research and plan a sustainable and Internet-enabled shelter to be deployed in the Sonoran desert. This prototype is intended to explore the possibility of creating life-saving beacons in an otherwise hostile landscape, enabling private property owners to help foster a humane border and creating a platform for understanding the motivations and stories of the thousands of migrants who make this dangerous trek through the desert. For this project Robert will collaborate with architects Paola Sanguinetti and Blake Goble, as well as emerging artist Ryan Moran.

Born in New York City, Grisha Coleman is a writer, composer, performer and choreographer. After dancing with the Urban Bush Women for four years, Grisha created the music-performance group HOTMOUTH, which was nominated for a 1998 Drama Desk Award for “Most Unique Theatrical Experience.”

Grisha is currently a research fellow at The Studio For Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University. At Eyebeam, she is working on echo::system, a collaborative project drawing from the disciplines of biology/ecology, architecture and live performance. echo::system will be a series of imagined environments that can be explored as an installation or observed as a performance.

Inspired by natural and urban ecosystems, echo::system will use computer modeling and sensor technologies to construct an experience of nature with dynamic patterns all of its own.

Video interview with Amanda McDonald Crowley about the workshops associated with the Feedback exhibition.

The exhibition’s title, FEEDBACK, refers to the self-correcting mechanisms by which systems—in this case, ecological—respond to the influence they exert on their environments. The works on display echoed this recursive dynamic, from Rebecca Bray and Britta Riley’s DrinkPeeDrinkDrinkPee sewage processing organ, to Natalie Jeremijenko’s tadpole-dispensing prescription from the walk-in Environmental Health Clinic for the ecologically unwell. In direct response to the world’s loss of crop biodiversity Leah Gauthier’s Sow-In engaged the public, in partnership with local community gardening groups, to sow the seeds of those food plants most in danger of extinction.

What is the Eco-Vis Challenge? Not only is there an environmental crisis, but an environmental data crisis. Viewing statistics on environmental change is usually overwhelming, unintelligible, hidden and dense. Eyebeam invited artists to collaborate with technologists to redefine what the future of tracking and visualizing the environment could be.

Due in good part to industrial agricultural practices, which rely on monocultures, chemical fertilizers and genetic modification to reap a predictable product, over 70% of our crop biodiversity was lostin the 20th century. Genetic erosion puts our food supply at risk from epidemics and infestations, which a more multifarious mix would guard against. To keep them from extinction, plants must be grown. During Sow-in, the general public, along with community gardening groups, will make seedling pots out of recycled materials and sow seeds of food plants on Slow Food's most endangered foods list and the Ark of Taste.
