Urballoon Action: Taking It to the Streets

Event Type: 
Start Date: 
1 Nov 2007

Meet Carlos J. Gómez de Llarena at 7PM sharp at Eyebeam, and project your ideas of the metropolis using the Urballoon as we take it to the streets of New York City. This is a chance to experience the Urballoon outside of the gallery and in its natural habitat. You‘ll also get a chance to discuss the project with Carlos in person.

Everyone is welcome and everyone is invited to participate!

Just a heads up before you come to Eyebeam on Thursday night: please post your definitions of New York City to be projected on the Urballoon using text, images, or animations, by clicking on: http://www.urballoon.com/post.jsp
