Architecture gallery SUPERFRONT ("promoting contemporary architecture for an interdisciplinary world") is opening their exhibit DETROIT: A BROOKLYN CASE STUDY on the ground in Detroit next week. The exhibit invites dialog between cities, using Brooklyn and Detroit as a connective example for misreadings and interventions.

To support the exhibit, donate to the Kickstarter campaign (running through July 15!) here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/620961604/detroit-a-brooklyn-case-study-superfront-in-detroi

Eyebeam's Digital Daycamp 2011 starts today! We have 20 high school students coming in from around the city to work with us. Follow our progress on the DDC2011 Tumblr: eyebeamddc2011.tumblr.com.

About DDC

DIGITAL DAY CAMP (DDC): Students enrolled in Eyebeam’s DDC summer program engage in lectures and hands-on workshops focusing on art and technology tools, careers in the field, and relevant social and artistic topics. Through their investigations, students have the opportunity to research current themes in art and technology, and develop projects in response to what they discover.

Relational aesthetics and beyond: not so much a criticism or exposé of everyday behavior, but rather a survey of how it blurs boundaries. Is life increasingly doing the multidisciplinary thing that art is doing, thus making life more art than ever (or vice versa)? What, given these blurred boundaries, is truly an alternative practice?

To me, the choice of site is also very interesting. Essex Street Market is both a wonderful historic preservation and almost a kind of market theme park for an idealized Bloomberg-era New York.

Building in shipping containers (as well as building out shipping containers) is nothing new. This retreat house interests me because through its construction, it has become no longer shippable. Rather than integrating a permanently shippable aspect into the design, the materials have been made usable for aesthetics in a way that limits functionality.

In contrast, the Singapore Takeout (http://intransit.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/04/27/singapore-sends-its-chefs-on-the-road/) maintains shipping functionality while also producing a high-end product. While the kitchen itself is perhaps not as aesthetically pleasing as some fancy restaurant kitchens, the food that it turns out appears to be just as drool-worthy.

I'm interested right now in exploring the maximums and minimums of urban potential. I don't just want to look at organized activities (e.g. urban gardening with CSAs), but also at taking advantage of already naturally occurring phenomena. In most cities, fruit trees are planted because they produce beautiful flowers in the spring, fulfilling a completely reasonable desire for urban beautification, in addition to the sustainable side effect of cleaner air. The fruit is a mostly lost byproduct of the flowers -- so much so that in New York, we plant Callery pear trees that have been bred not to fruit, and no one except the very young expects to see cherries on cherry trees.

June 18th Woodstock, VT

The 2011 Woodstock Digital Media Festival will explore and showcase some of the most important and accessible work taking place in digital media today.

ART + MEDIA + TECHNOLOGY

These three elements will form the foundation of the festival program. Like a stool built on three legs, the WDMF will be built on its three strands and foster the interaction of people and ideas from these different areas of work.

In order to focus this interaction of professionals and bring coherence to the public exhibition of work, the 2011 festival will be organized around a topical theme:

“OUT OF PLACE”
