Podcast: The Pop Culture Salvage Expeditions Fri, 10 Apr 2015 15:50:36 +0000 → ]]> I’m doing a podcast with Stephen Duncombe and Patricia Jerido from the Center for Artistic Activism. Each month we choose something from the most popular, highest grossing parts of mainstream culture. So far we’ve watched Transformers: Age of Extinction, the highest grossing movie worldwide (and most critically panned) of 2014, and we headed out for a Friday night at TGI Friday’s in Union Square.

In each episode we try to go below the surface to understand what makes these activities so popular, and what can we learn from it to make better art and activism.

You can subscribe via iTunes or subscribe on the Center for Artistic Activism site.

We’ve got some very positive feedback. If you like it, please tell a friend and rate it and review it wherever you get your podcasts.

Artists In Conversation

Featuring Eyebeam Artists and Technologists

Saturday 21 February, 2015

12:00PM – 7:00PM

Please note this talk will take place in DUMBO, Brooklyn at Gallery 216, 111 Front Street

As part of the 2015 Annual Showcase, join participating Eyebeam artists for a full day of invigorating inquiry into critical approaches to emerging technologies and their creative usage. Topics will include: Wearable Tech Against Stop-and-Frisk, Discomfortability in Public Work, Online Presentations of Fictional Facts, and Architecture as Technology.

12:00PM – 12:45PM


Eyebeam Student Resident Iltimas Doha will join Joanne McNeil in conversation about his project “Hoodie”. Combined with stealth technology, this piece of clothing can be used as a protective tool against law enforcement harassment. As a victim of the NYPD stop-and-frisk tactic, Doha wants to empower other young potential targets of police harassment using technology.

1:00PM – 2:00PM


Eyebeam Fellow Nancy Nowacek and Todd Shalom from Elastic City invite, battle and tame discomfort in their public, participatory work. As their work can potentially unsettle one’s emotional (and sometimes physical) state, it is often met with resistance or skepticism. Join Nowacek and Shalom in a talk about navigating these choppy waters. On stage will be two chairs, a microphone and nothing to hide behind.

2:00PM – 3:00PM

When the Fake Becomes Real

The internet is full of impostors, unreliable narrators, replicas, spoofers, parodies, and stories that present fiction as fact. Some things that started as fiction become fact, and this also happens in reverse. In conversation, current and former residents Joanne McNeil and Lauren McCarthy will discuss their work and give examples of the murky space between real and fake.

3:30PM – 4:30PM

Architecture as Technology

Eva Franch i Gilabert, Executive Director of and Chief Curator of Storefront for Art and Architecture, will join Eyebeam Fellow Torkwase Dyson in an inquiry into usage of architecture as a form of technology. Dyson explores architecture as a device to extrapolate ideas of human geography and in conversation, they will explore conceptual and formal architectural ideas as a means to develop iterations of space and place that impact the physiological makeup of the body.

5:00PM – 6:00PM

Playing For Laughs

How does comedy manifest itself in games? From having players do ridiculous things, to making ’em laugh, to writing inside jokes – a panel of game designers will discuss how humor is incorporated into their games. Featuring Kaho Abe, Jane Friedhoff, and Eyebeam Residents Chloe Varelidi and Atul Varma.

6:00PM – 7:00PM

Everyday Strategies for Time Travel

There were some great things about the internet in 1970, 1992, 2000, and 2007. While nostalgia for a Web That Was is often misleading and misguided, alumni Ingrid Burrington and Steve Lambert will highlight some forgotten traits that can make our increasingly machine-readable, as-a-serviced now into a more human-inhabitable future. Burrington and Lambert will cover different approaches to stepping out of timestamps and constructing if not the web we once had, then at least the web we might want.
