A sculpture garden of readymades

Untethered was a sculpture garden of everyday objects deprogrammed of their original function, embedded with new intelligence, and transformed into surrealist and surprising readymades, including a photocopier that reads the night sky; a PDA turned guitar; and a piano that plays the Internet. The exhibition featured pieces by 15 artists working at the intersection of art and technology, including current and former Eyebeam residents and fellows, as well as leading international artists.

Participating artists: Jessica Banks, Ayah Bdeir, Michel de Broin, Max Dean, Paul DeMarinis, Kelly Dobson, Germaine Koh, JooYoun Paek, Sascha Pohflepp, Hans-Christoph Steiner, Thomson & Craighead, Nor_/d, Nor_d (Addie Wagenknecht + Stefan Hechenberger), Joe Winter

Curated by Eyebeam curatorial fellow Sarah Cook, whose fellowship was supported by a partnership with CRUMB
