June 27: Interactivos? workshop and public skill-share begins

(0)

Interactivos?: Better Than the Real Thing
Dates: June 27 -- July 12, 12 -- 6PM
Location: Eyebeam, 540 W. 21st St., NYC
Cost: Free
http://www.eyebeam.org/learning/learning.php?page=interactivos
Stay tuned for the official Interactivos? project website launch!

Join Eyebeam daily between June 27 and July 12, from 12 -- 6PM to witness the transformation of Eyebeam's main space into a lab for the creation of interactive art projects.

From an open-call, Eyebeam selected nine new projects to be realized by artists from around the world, with the collaboration of Eyebeam resident artists and fellows and over two dozen very skilled artists, engineers, musicians, programmers, designers, and hackers (also selected from an open call). The projects investigate interactivity in all of its forms, and usually feature a mix of hardware tinkering, software coding, and conceptual hacking.

During the intensive two-week Interactivos? workshop, the lab will be open and the public are welcome to drop in, see the artists and collaborators at work, and participate in discussions, critiques, and other social activities investigating interactivity in the context of this year's Interactivos? theme: the blurry line between the real and the fake. A full schedule of events will follow. On July 12 the lab will be transformed into an exhibition, Double Take, which will be on view through August 9.

Interactivos? was initiated two years ago by the Medialab-Prado program and the Madrid City Council. This is the first time it has taken place outside Spain.

The full list of projects can be found here: http://www.eyebeam.org/learning/learning.php?page=interactivos and an additional Interactivos? project website will be launched during the next two weeks.

10 netartworks I was interested in around 10 years ago and 10 from the last few years.

Note - This is not a "best of" list. It is just some works that I think about for time to time. I've added a MTAA work in the netart_x section only because it was done with Eryk Salvaggio and his website from that time (one38.org), like so many works from that time, is gone. Seeing as I've left off a good many netartworks that I like, I may (or may not) change the list from time to time. I think of xandxx as an netartwork. I hope to live long enough to add a netart_xxx section in 2018 on the longest day of the year.

Contact (image above) by Stéphan Barron, is a beautiful simple networked installation employing simple interaction in a sophisticated way.

"Two seemingly unconnected copper plates in two different locations. When a [sic] someone places a hand on the first plate, the second will begin to warm up."

This is a new video loop I made that is up in Oakland, CA at Blankspace Gallery with accompanying digital prints and also featured at the group show in Portland at Upper Playground. The prints are nice and big, about four feet wide.
