Summer School Masterclasses: Registration deadline this Monday, June 21

STUDIO-BASED SUMMER MASTERCLASSES AT EYEBEAM
Deadline to sign-up June 21

Join us this July for a series of week-long, studio-based intensives. Work alongside Eyebeam Fellows Kaho Abe and Jacob Ciocci and their collaborators, experimenting and playing with creative uses of the latest tools in art, media, and technology. Walk away with at the very least a working prototype of a project, and of course learn some new skills along the way.

These courses will simulate a residency experience at Eyebeam - Over the course of the week, participants will spend time working and hanging out with the artists, designers, academics, and technologists from around the world that make up our community, and have studio access to studio tools and equipment relevant to your work here. Eyebeam’s studio is located in the heart of NYC’s Chelsea art district, and provides a fertile context for thinking, making and sharing.

ALTERNATIVE CONTROLS FOR GAMES & PLAY
Physical computing meets game design in this week-long intensive led by Kaho Abe.

Participants will design a working game prototype while collaborating with peers and guest designers to experiment with various sensors, switches, computer vision, and the Arduino. This course is geared towards game designers, and a basic understanding of game design and coding is required. Some knowledge of physical computing is a plus, yet not required.

Kaho Abe is a designer interested in improving social and personal experiences through the use of technology, fashion and games. She is a presenter at Come Out & Play 2010, a fellow at Eyebeam and has an MFA in Design & Technology from Parsons.
