"Eyebeam Fellows are artists, hackers, and engineers who spearhead new research and develop exciting new work at the point where art and technology meet. Eyebeam Fellows regularly develop innovative and creative open source technology within an environment that fosters collaborative development. Fellows lead public seminars, exhibitions, and educational programming, and help direct Eyebeam's Research Groups. These individuals are selected in recognition of their exceptional talent and the belief that a sustained research period is critical for the development of new ideas and innovative work—goals central to Eyebeam’s mission. Eyebeam Residencies support the creative research, production and presentation of initiatives querying art, technology and culture. The 5 month residency is a period of concentration and immersion in artistic investigation, daring research or production of visionary, experimental applications and projects. Past initiatives have ranged from moving image, sound and physical computing works to technical prototypes, installations and public interventions."
