Upgrade! NY
August 2006

This time the Upgrade event attempted to take on the dark desires beyond the basic art/privacy/surveillance discourse.

Through three projects exercising different modes of surveillance we discussed artists jealousy of authoritative powers and the desire to posses these powers themselves.

May 10, 2007

Eyebeam Resident Michael Mandiberg presented a talk and workshop about his new project Real Costs. Attendees were encouraged to bring a laptop to play along. Programming knowledge was useful.

This hybrid talk/workshop included a 30 minute presentation of the project, and how it related to Michael’s previous work, followed by guided modding of the script. Michael provided a focused walk through of the code, and then set everyone free to make some modifications and provided feedback for the project.

Preface

In the past 50 years the digital user-interface has become a major field of cultural production, since the innovations of Douglas Engelbart in the sixties (mouse/keyboard/video-screen) through the personal computer revolution in the eighties to the rise of the World Wide Web in the nineties and the wider trends for social web applications since the turn of the century. Producers of hardware and software systems have been attempting to develop interfaces that will direct the users to produce the interaction desired by the system they represent.

 

[ January 31, 2009; 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. ] Eyebeam will be hosting a public critique for the Eco-Vis Challenge submissions this Thursday, as part of this month’s Upgrade! series of public programming.אייבים תקיים מפגש ביקורת פתוח עבור מתמודדי תחרות האקו-ויזואליזציה ביום חמישי הקרוב כחלק מסדרת מפגשי האפגרייד ניו יורק.
