Eyebeam Awarded $10,000 Grant to Enhance Learning Online

Eyebeam’s Digital Day Camp Won Grant as Part of Larger Effort to Build a Learning Approach for Our Times

Washington, D.C., July 10, 2013 – Eyebeam recently was awarded a $10,000 grant to support its Digital Day Camp program for youth this summer after entering a national competition supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, administered by Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC), and carried out in collaboration with Facebook, the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI), and Mozilla.




Eyebeam is pleased to announce the appointment of Zoë Salditch as Communications Director, beginning August 2013. Zoë will be joining us from Rhizome, a nonprofit organization affiliated with the New Museum that is dedicated to emerging artistic practices that engage technology. As Rhizome’s Program Director, Zoë oversaw and produced key programs and events, including the Commissions Program, The Download, and the annual Seven on Seven Conference. We welcome her onboard, as an experienced and knowledgeable member of the media arts community, and we look forward to her contributions to Eyebeam’s growing presence within the international fields of art and technology.

About a month ago, I asked Eyebeam alums eteam to write a blog entry on their experiences with e-book publishing to help others who may be going through their own research process. They kindly did so, the result is below. - Roddy Schrock

From pdf to book  (eteam)

In the beginning it seemed so easy, or at least so much easier than editing a video. Easier in terms of technological and space requirements. But as it is with pretty much everything we do, things don’t turn out the way they appear at first. And writing a book was no different. Instead of 3 weeks it took three month for a pocket book of 58 pages to be written, composed and finally printed.

Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2013 Spring/Summer Residencies and 2013 Fellowships, beginning in March. Residencies have been awarded to 7 artists and Fellowships have been awarded to 4 artists. The research-based practices represented by this cohort will focus on a broad spectrum of topics including web-based poetics; online information biases; Cyberfeminism and online art in the early 90's; and relationships to the virtual in everyday life. All incoming artists and technologists receive generous stipends and 24/7 access to Eyebeam's design, research and fabrication studios. 


Mozilla and Eyebeam are pleased to announce the recipients of the Open(Art) Fellowship. The three selected fellows are Forrest Oliphant, Toby Schachman, and Nortd Labs (Addie Wagenknecht and Stefan Hechenberger). Together, these creative technologists will be exploring the frontier of art and the open web as part of our new Open(Art) program.

Pushing the boundaries of creative code


Updated November 21, 2012:

Except for special events, Eyebeam will remain closed through mid-December due to Hurricane Sandy. Please check our Public Programs section for upcoming talks and performances. We look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future.


Eyebeam thanks the incredible volunteers who've trekked to Chelsea through rain, shine, and snow to give us their help. We are immensely grateful for your time and support.

For those who are unable to volunteer but wish to help, please consider donating to Eyebeam. Your contribution will help cover the costs of replacing destroyed technical equipment and furnishings.

Again, a huge thank you to all of our supporters, especially those who have volunteered. Eyebeam looks forward to rebuilding its space, better than ever!
