Hans-Christoph Steiner spends his time making private communications software usable by everyone, designing interactive software with a focus on human perceptual capabilities, building networks with free software, and composing music with computers. With an emphasis on collaboration, he has worked in many forms, including free software for mobile and embedded devices, responsive sound environments, free wireless networks that help build community, musical robots that listen, programming environments allow people to play with math, and a jet-powered fish that you can ride. To further his research, he teaches and works at various media art centers and organizes open, collaborative hacklabs and barcamp conferences. He is currently building encrypted, anonymous communications devices as part of the Guardian Project as well as teaching courses in interaction design and media programming NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program and workshops around the world.

I am Dan (or Daniel) Walmsley. I’m a comedian, musician and programmer who is based in Melbourne, Australia but these days I split my time between the UK, USA and Australia.

My career, such as it is, has mostly been as a programmer. Lacking any kind of career focus, I’ve ended up doing an insanely wide array of things, from weather and lighting systems integration on the new third runway at Incheon (the main airport in South Korea) to global risk management systems in the banking industry, cobol-based accounting systems, and lots and lots of web programming.

Thursdays in April: Moving Image Design with Eyebeam Fellow, Aaron Meyers. Designer and programmer Aaron Meyers will introduce students to Processing, a free open source tool to code interactive moving images. Students will learn the basics of writing code using a visual approach; focusing on interactivity, drawing, and motion while checking out examples of other artwork created with Processing.

 

It was another great afternoon as a group continued developing their blogs and websites.  Blogs from sports to crafty creative projects to documenting an-animation-in-process are coming together and looking fantastic. The drop-in program runs every Thursday from 3-6PM, so be sure to drop by! http://eyebeam.org/events/youth-drop-in-program

Georg is a visual communicator living in Brooklyn, NY. What does that mean? Good question! It’s purposefully vague but perhaps by looking at his work you will get an idea of what he does. He likes tea and riding his bike and, unfortunately, fantasy baseball. It is a constant temptation that he is not altogether proud of.

Nullsleep is Jeremiah Johnson.
Living in Manhattan, New York.
Attended Columbia University School of Engineering & Applied Science.

Nullsleep creates powerful romantic pop using repurposed low-bit electronics in a relentless search for new ways to circumvent their limitations. Bittersweet melodies and driving, rhythmic pulses are coaxed out of small plastic devices to produce a surprisingly intense sound. In 1999 Nullsleep cofounded 8bitpeoples, a collective of artists interested in the audio-visual aesthetics of early home computers and video game consoles. He has since released a number of recordings through 8bitpeoples, Astralwerks, Aniplex and others. Based in New York City, Nullsleep has performed extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia, including the 20-date International Chiptune Resistance world tour in 2006.
