Open(Art) was a joint initiative launched by Eyebeam and Mozilla to support creativity at the intersection of art and the open web. It was a unique opportunity for artists and technologists to collaborate on new work catalyzing creative participation on a global scale. Selected artists and technologists developed projects that push the boundaries of online or networked culture and address contemporary social challenges, while contributing to the community of practice around creative code.
Three Open(Art) Fellows were selected from an open call for proposals, and awarded a $15,000 production budget and resources to develop their projects, including desk space and access to design, research, and fabrication studios at Eyebeam’s New York location. The Fellows' work is presented through an exhibition and workshops taking place at Eyebeam, July 12 – August 11, 2013.
