Thanks to an invitation from Cynthia Gehrig from the Jerome Foundation, a group of Eyebeamers will be presenting at the annual Grantmakers in the Arts Conference on October 20.
The title of the panel:
Social Networking Technology: Spaces for Creation, Engagement, Discourse and Promotion
Tuesday, October 20, 9:30 am – 11:00 am
Organized by Cynthia Gehrig, president, Jerome Foundation
Presented by Amanda McDonald Crowley, executive director, Eyebeam Art + Technology Center; and artists Scott Kildall, Britta Riley and Brooke Singer.
Our goal is to give an overview of current work which uses social networking technologies not just to promote work, but in the actual production of art: its about giving grantmakers an overview of how contemporary artists are using these tools to develop socially engaged work.
Eyebeam will hold Open Studios for Artists In Residence, Student Residents, and Senior Fellows
Friday, October 23 and Saturday, October 24, from 3-6pm.
A two-day presentation at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center allowing a rare, inside look at current research. Guided tours of artists’ work will be given every hour from 3–6PM.
Eyebeam is pleased to host Open Studios for its 2009 Senior Fellows, Resident Artists, and Student Residents at Eyebeam’s state-of-the-art design, research, and fabrication studio; showcasing video performance, wearable technologies, code and humor, party technology, and sustainablity design.

Britta Riley will be leading a workshop on the Waterpod' Brooklyn Bridge Park pier for anyone who wants to learn how to build a windowfarm.
Windowfarms let you grow your own food in your apartment window year-round by means of hydroponics.
Bring your window dimensions (height, width, sill depth) and you will walk away with a customized design just for your apartment window.
