In celebration of our 20th year, Eyebeam is hosting our first ever Silent Auction of Artist Experiences at our benefit Fête of the Future on June 18. You can also make a donation to Eyebeam to ensure we can continue providing impactful artist support.
Up for auction are four one-of-a-kind experiences, designed and led just for you by illustrious Eyebeam alumni! There is no better way to step inside the world of Eyebeam and the brilliant minds of our artists. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity, available for bidding online and in person the night of the event.
Experiences range from an animated digital portrait by Zach Lieberman, a day of being “followed” arranged by Lauren McCarthy, a private master class with Taeyoon Choi, and a 3D Additivist cooking class with Morehshin Allahyari.
Bidding is easy: just set your maximum bid and the system will continue bidding for you! You will be alerted if someone outbids you, and you can always check back in and increase your bid in increments of $100.
Auction closes both in person and online at 10pm on June 18, 2019. All payments will be processed after auction ends.
Ever feel totally mystified and disconnected from technology, despite industry efforts to make more user-friendly “extensions” of our everyday life? Inspired by all of the creative technologists around you, but baffled by the prospect of using technology freely and intuitively, even poetically? For over 5 years, artist Taeyoon Choi has been developing a master class on “poetic computation,” which has helped over 300 people feel more empowered with technology. The master class involves hands-on coding activities, from performing with strings and drawing on paper. The recipient will have the invaluable opportunity to host a private class for up to 20 friends and colleagues in their home or office expertly led by Choi, and will leave never feeling the same way about their relationship to technology and the world around them!
Eyebeam alum Taeyoon Choi is an artist, educator, and activist based in New York and Seoul.
