This exhibition of 14 projects from 10 years of residencies, fellowships and commissions in Eyebeam’s labs is the first of three shows that document the organization’s role in supporting artists experimenting with or critically examining the impact of new technologies in creative endeavor.
Source Code refers to the human-readable instructions used in computer programming that must be translated to machine-language in order to be executed; it also alludes to the roots, or “source code” of Eyebeam’s own origins. The lineup of artists, technologists, hackers and programmers in Source Code are: Cory Arcangel,Carrie Dashow, eteam, Nina Katchadourian, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, MediaShed, neuroTransmitter, Steve Lambert, Alex Galloway and artists using Galloway’s Carnivore client -- a surveillance tool for data network that serves that data to various creative interfaces called "clients” to make their work: Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Golan Levin, MTAA and Mark Napier.
Release of projects into the public domain is among Eyebeam’s mandates, which leads to reappropriation or use of the source-code beyond Eyebeam walls, as illustrated by Carnivore clients.
