Now in its 10th year, Digital Day Camp is Eyebeam’s longest running program. DDC09 students will engage in lectures and hands-on workshops focusing on art and technology tools, careers in the field, and relevant social and artistic topics. Through their investigations, they will have the opportunity to research current themes in arts and technology, and develop their own project in response to what they discover.
Projects will be promoted through Eyebeam’s website, and through a final public event on Tuesday, July 28, 6PM.
This summer’s theme will focus on creative activism in an urban environment. Students will work with urban planners, software designers, activists, video artists, and even a couple of activist gardeners to dig a little deeper into the fabric of our city, to learn more about how can creatively activate it, and how we can use art and technology to change it for the better. Each student has been selected for their special talents as visual artists, writers, musicians, dancers, or performers to contribute to a final project.
