Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2011 Fall/Winter Residencies. Cash awards totaling $25,000, but much more than that, access to amazing resources including 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research, and fabrication studios have been awarded to 6 artists in the areas of performance, wearable technology, interactive installation, media art, and sonification/ visualization.

Eyebeam’s residents are selected from two yearly open calls of emerging artists and creative technologists for a five-month residency, which includes a stipend as well as access to Eyebeam’s facilities, equipment, and opportunities for collaboration and development of work. This group of six residents was selected from a group of 176 applicants.

The external review panel for this round of applications consisted of Michael Joaquin Grey (artist, inventor, educator), Barbara London (MoMA curator of media), and Juliana Restrepo (director, Museo de Arte Moderno Medellín, Colombia).  The Eyebeam reviewers were Amanda McDonald Crowley (executive director), Nova Jiang (Eyebeam fellow), Fran Ilich (Eyebeam fellow), Emma Lloyd (director of technology), Taeyoon Choi (Eyebeam fellow), and Roddy Schrock (associate director: creative residencies).
