Video made by The Music Building, about CT-SWaM (Contemporary Temporary Sound Works And Music): Eyebeam’s late night concert series curated by Eyebeam Alumni Daniel Neumann, happening intermittently in Eyebeam’s Main Space.
The series focuses on contemporary sound experiments, electro-acoustic multi-channel performance, social relations, improvisation, lowercase artistic presence, and topology – study of place/space with a spatial concept that goes beyond linear, geometrical understandings of space.
One of the series is to create unique situations, to stay irregular, to only apply methods that don’t appear as such – regularities should seem incidental and are then very welcome. The work is the focus and its presentation therefore has to be plastic, morphing, not static. Context provides security: if worked within and against it.
F.A.T. GOLD: Five Years of Free Art & Technology
Curated by Lindsay Howard
April 1–20, 2013
"The free software and arts communities are filled with people motivated not just by money but by the act of creation and a drive to make meaningful, or at least functional, contributions to society," writes F.A.T. Lab co-founder Evan Roth in his recent essay, Artist Hacker: From Free Software to Fine Art. Inspired by the philosophy put forth by Roth, Eyebeam hosted a panel on Thursday April 4 from 7:00pm–8:30pm called "Artists as Hackers". The discussion brought together Roth and F.A.T. Fellows Aram Bartholl, Tobias Leingruber, James Powderly, and Addie Wagenknecht, moderated by Christiane Paul, for a look at how hacker culture has influenced a new generation of artists.
