The Digital Avant-Garde has descended on Chelsea, NYC, with an exhibit that demands that you dance, sweat, and speak in the name of art. For one more week only, Eyebeam presents Prix Selection, an exhibition of award winning works from the Prix Ars Electronica Interactive Art category. It’s 25 years now that Ars Electronica, the world-renowned institution for digital media culture, has been fertilizing and rewarding innovations in digital art, and this exhibition brings together eight interactive installations from as early as 1990, along with a comprehensive collection of archival material. Looking for a new point of view? Japanese technoartist Hachiya Kazuhiko's Inter DisCommunication Machine invites you to put on a pair of goggles, strap on some wings and see the world through your partner's eyes. Watch sparks fly off your body as you dance in Myron Krueger's Videoplace, or stay cool as you bicycle through a virtual Manhattan in The Legible City, by Jeffrey Shaw: in all cases, be prepared to move your imagination and your body. Last chance to immerse yourself in these virtual worlds before Prix Selection closes on July 18! - Ophra Wolf
