Open(Art) is a joint initiative launched by Eyebeam and Mozilla to support creativity at the intersection of art and the open web. It is a unique opportunity for artists and technologists to collaborate on new work that catalyzes creative participation on a global scale. Selected artists and technologists develop projects that push the boundaries of online or networked culture and address contemporary social challenges, while contributing to the community of practice around creative code.
Three Open(Art) Fellows were selected from an open call for proposals, and awarded a $15,000 production budget and resources to develop their projects, including desk space and access to design, research, and fabrication studios at Eyebeam’s New York location. The Fellows' work is presented through an exhibition and workshops taking place at Eyebeam, July 12 – August 11, 2013.
The Open(Art) website will also provide a unique look into their process. Eyebeam Fellow Ramsey Nasser had developed a system for compiling all Open(Art) project activity as one continuous stream of text and visuals taken from the Fellows' social media feeds.
