January 5 - 26: Beyond Light Bulbs: Eco-Vis Challenge

Eyebeam, 540 W. 21st St. (between 10th Ave. and 11th Ave.), NYC

January will be devoted to setting the green scene with presentations of the winning submissions of the two-part Eco-Vis Challenge, initiated by Eyebeam's Sustainability Research Group. Featuring winners of each of the two Eco-Vis categories (icons and data visualizations), the installation will be an opportunity for participants and visitors to see the projects and learn how and why they were chosen. Going one step further, the display will reveal the workings of Eyebeam's Sustainability Research Group, and their process in designing the challenge, from initial inspiration through completion. The preview of winning projects, selected from a pool of 139 proposals, will be followed by our next major exhibition on sustainability, FEEDBACK, opening March 13.


Projects from Eyebeam's Eco-Vis Challenge, a collaborative initiative between artists and technologists focused on tracking and visualizing environmental data, will be on display during the month of January. The installation is one part of "Beyond Light Bulbs", a programming series based around Eyebeam's Sustainability Research Group.
