"Better Than the Real Thing"
From an open-call, Eyebeam have selected nine new projects to be realized by artists from around the world, with the collaboration of Eyebeam resident artists and fellows and over two dozen very skilled artists, engineers, musicians, programmers, designers, and hackers (also selected from an open call). The projects, described below, investigate interactivity in all its forms, and usually feature a mix of hardware tinkering, software coding, and conceptual hacking.
During the intensive two week Interactivos? workshop, the lab will be open and you are welcome to drop in and see the artists and collaborators at work and participate in discussions, critiques of the works-in-progress, and other social activities investigating interactivity, and this year's Interactivos? themes: the blurry line between the real and the fake. A full schedule of events will follow. On July 12 the lab will be transformed into an exhibition of the resulting works, on view through August 9.
Interactivos? was initiated two years ago by the Medialab-Prado program and the Madrid City Council. This is the first time it has taken place outside Spain.
