On October 4–6, 2013, Eyebeam will host the first event of its kind, PRISM Breakup, a series of art and technology events dedicated to exploring and providing forms of protection from surveillance. This event came about in part from Eyebeam’s mission to support the work of artists who critically expose technologies and examine their relationship to society, as well as offering continued support to its alumni following their residencies. The gathering will bring together a wide spectrum of artists, hackers, academics, activists, security analysts and journalists for a long weekend of meaningful conversation, hands-on workshops, and an art exhibition that will be open October 4–12.
This is the kind of thing Eyebeam excels at—if you’re in NYC between Oct 4-12, I highly recommend you stop by! The show is coordinated by Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Allison Burtch, Aurelia Moser, and Ramsey Nasser.
