Join Eyebeam Art & Technology Center and The Creators Project August 5th-7th for Art Hack Weekend, a two-day, open-source hackathon that celebrates new artistic experiences.
Design, code and prototype projects that re-imagine the way we create, consume, and interact with media.
We are interested in exploring how new technological advancements in fields like motion tracking, depth mapping, holographics and 3D visuals, gesture control, augmented reality, projection mapping, and networked environments can be transformed into tools that help change the way we experience and connect with art both on and offline, and/or creating entirely new artistic experiments. Projects can come in the form of web apps, mobile apps, installations, widgets, websites, or any combination of the above.

The Brian Lehrer Show The Great Urban Hack Thursday, November 04, 2010
John Keefe, WNYC's senior executive producer for news, talks about this weekend's Great Urban Hack, an event to promote the intersection of journalism and technology. The over-night, open-source "hackathon" is being co-sponsored by WNYC.
Join Eyebeam Art + Technology Center & Hacks/Hackers NYC on Nov. 6 & 7 for The Great Urban Hack, a two-day, overnight, open-source hackathon that celebrates the city.
Design, report on, code and create projects to help New Yorkers get the information they need while strenghtening a sense of community.
Whether it's news, politics, government information, arts, culture, education, transportation, environment or health related — any journalism or technology project that helps residents connect to their communities is welcome.
We'll feed you throughout the hackathon, while a program of optional presentations will keep your brain (and your energy) going. Bring an open mind, a possible open-source project idea and a willingness to collaborate.
