What is Important Now, Eyebeam

We are thrilled to announce the 2013 Fall/Winter Residents! Since the organization’s founding in 1997, Eyebeam has supported over 250 artists and technologists through its residency and fellowship programs. Residents are provided with funds to complete a specific project during five-month residency cycles in the fall and spring; Fellows are selected based on a body of work and given 11 months to develop their practice. These select artists form the core of Eyebeam’s community by generating new work and interacting with the public, resulting in a critical examination of social, political and aesthetic implications of technology.

In our Fall/Winter 2013 Residency Open Call, we focused the residency program on a single line of inquiry: What is most important now; what does technology mean today; and how can it be creatively used and misused to expand notions of what is possible? As with all Eyebeam Residency programs, this Residents’ call supports innovative works that aim to positively change cultural relationships to new technologies.

The 2013 Fall/Winter Residents are:
Chris Woebken and Sascha Pohflepp
Ebru Kurbak and Irene Posch
Wyatt Niehaus
Zach Blas
