Eyebeam is the brilliant, privately-funded digital arts and research centre in New York: where the ever-brilliant Amanda MC works her magic.
They have an exhibition on currently called “FEEDBACK” – I wish I was there to see it! There’s been a lot of discussion about sustainability and design recently, and I’m happy to see that they are investing in a Sustainability Research Group. I think a She Says on sustainability would be a great plan.
Here’s the lowdown on the show:
What does it mean to think “green”?
Eyebeam’s expansive new exhibition, FEEDBACK, surveys artists, designers, architects and engineers on the topic of sustainability, and presents their responses—19 projects varying from public art projects and industrial design to DIY energy solutions and software tools—to inspire discussion and action on this pervasive (and increasingly commodified) subject.
As the culmination of Eyebeam’s Beyond Light Bulbs programming series, the show highlights the concerns, interests and work of Eyebeam’s Sustainability Research Group, with work by individuals, collectives, students, local community groups and the Eco-Vis Challenge winners.
