Eyebeam is an art and technology center that provides a fertile context and state-of-the-art tools for digital research and experimentation. It is a lively incubator of creativity and thought, where artists and technologists actively engage with culture, addressing the issues and concerns of our time. Eyebeam challenges convention, celebrates the hack, educates the next generation, encourages collaboration, freely offers its contributions to the community, and invites the public to share in a spirit of openness: open source, open content and open distribution.

Maker Prom 2014

At the Eyebeam table, Toni Pizza taught teens how to make LED Corsages (and other accessories) using basic circuits and crafts.

This year’s Scholastic Art & Writing Awards winners from across the US attended the first-ever Maker Prom at the Roosevelt Hotel in NYC on June 5th, 2014. Hive NYC organizations facilitated maker activities, including LED corsages, sonic portraits, and more. The event was also a lead-in to Mozilla’s global Maker Party campaign.”
