Eyebeam is a not-for-profit organization established to provide access, education, and support for artists, students and the general public in the field of art and technology. It was founded in 1996 by John S. Johnson with the purpose of introducing broad and diverse audiences to new technologies and media arts while simultaneously establishing new
media art as a significant genre.

This exhibition is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
