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.
If you are one of the 75k followers of artist Zach Lieberman, you are likely familiar with his truly one-of-a-kind creative coding experiments and digital portraits. Now you have the chance to have your very own personalized digital portrait, made especially for you or a loved one by Lieberman himself! Step inside the artist’s studio for a one-on-one visit where he will walk you through the process of live coding, and then take your photo from which he will create your custom digital portrait using his signature technique. The recipient will receive both a 17×22” print, as well as an animated digital version to share and go viral on social media.
Zachary Lieberman is an artist, researcher and educator with a simple goal: he wants you surprised. In his work, he creates performances and installations that take human gesture as input and amplify them in different ways — making drawings come to life, imagining what the voice might look like if we could see it, transforming people’s silhouettes into music. He’s been listed as one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People and his projects have won the Golden Nica from Ars Electronica, Interactive Design of the Year from Design Museum London as well as listed in Time Magazine’s Best Inventions of the Year. He creates artwork through writing software and is a co-creator of openFrameworks, an open source C++ toolkit for creative coding and helped co-found the School for Poetic Computation, a school examining the lyrical possibilities of code.
