Eyebeam Art & Technology Center provides a context for creative collaboration and the cross-pollination of ideas & practice. In our lab at any given time, there are up to 20 resident artists onsite at our 15,000 sq-ft facility, developing work for open dissemination through online, primarily open-source, publication. Three Eyebeam fellows will discuss their work, how they blend creative strategies & technology to build communities, share information, and create spaces for play & participation. Kaho Abe will present her work with youth and adults to demystify the black box of consumer electronics and create their own custom interfaces for games and play. Nova Jiang will present recent projects that leverage individual desire with risk & reward to create a low barrier for entry and increased participant investment. Jon Cohrs will share insights into his work combining tactical media, software and DIY interventions with location-based experiences to engage participants in meaningful dialogue about social issues.
