Eyebeam is pleased to announce the Open(Art) exhibition and workshop series, which marks the culmination of our Open(Art) Fellows' projects.
Open(Art) is a joint initiative launched by Eyebeam and Mozilla to support creativity at the intersection of art and the open web. It offers a unique opportunity for artists and technologists to collaborate on work that catalyzes participation on a global scale, and engages audiences through innovation, transparency, and utility.
Join the Open(Art) Fellows, Forrest Oliphant, Toby Schachman and Nortd Labs, for a reception on July 12 and workshops on July 13. Both events are free and open to the public.
About the Projects:
Forrest Oliphant - Meemoo
Meemoo brings the power of app development to everyone. It is an HTML5 data flow programming environment with an emphasis on realtime audio-visual manipulation. Using an intuitive visual interface that lets users connect modules together using colorful "wires,"Meemoo lets anyone remix and build apps right in the browser.
Toby Schachman - Pixel Shaders
Pixel Shaders is an interactive book, platform, and community centered around harnessing the graphics processing unit (GPU) for artistic purposes. It aims to make GPU programming accessible to artists in the same way that tools like Processing made CPU programming more accessible to digital creators.
Nortd Labs (Addie Wagenknecht and Stefan Hechenberger) - BOMfu
BOMfu is a collaborative web repository for open hardware projects. It aims to increase the ease of use and quality for the "bill of materials" or "BOM"- the list of raw materials required to build a finished product. The goal is to open up new and more complex forms of open hardware creation.
