Eyebeam is a gallery / art event space in New York’s Chelsea district. Eyebeam’s MIXER series is dedicated to showcasing leading artists in the fields of live video and audio performance, interactivity and participatory practice.
This video documents the first of the two nights of performance and installations that turned Eyebeams warehouse space into a temporary village of creatively engineered pavilions themed around the idea of utopia. The event takes on the concept of the World’s Fair and presents surveillance balloons, a World of Warcraft-inspired living space, a computerized prayer booth with a direct line to the guy upstairs, Loud Objects, and Tim Sweeney as the DJ who provides the soundtrack to the event.
Named “The New Saturday Night” by New York Magazine (Jan., 16 – 23, 2009), and guaranteed to sell out, Eyebeam’s MIXER series is dedicated to showcasing leading artists in the fields of live video and audio performance, interactivity and participatory practice.
