On August 24, Eyebeam fellow Nancy Nowacek took Citizen Bridge Prototype 4.2 to The Webb Institute, a college dedicated to naval architecture and engineering to test it in the waters of Long Island Sound. In collaboration with a mixture returning and new students, staff members and Dean Richard P. Neilson, on the shores of Long Island Sound, Citizen Bridge was towed out to observe its behavior in the tide and currents. Testing for strength and performance with pedestrians on board, the group was able to make multiple improvements on site, resulting in an optimal structure.

The day was a great learning experience for Nancy as well as her collaborators. The prototype remains behind in order for students to continue testing and experimenting with the structure. Nancy says that her focus now is to work towards a big test next summer, shifting focus from a 16 foot bridge to a 300 foot bridge.

Eyebeam is pleased to announce the recipients of its Fall/Winter 2014 Eyebeam Residencies. Residents are chosen through a highly competitive twice-yearly call open to artists, creative technologists, designers, curators, urbanists, architects, and policy thinkers. Recipients receive 24/7 access to Eyebeam’s design, digital research, and fabrication studios, as well as $5000 each to produce new works.
Incoming Residents:
Chloe Varelidi designs and produces playful experiences. Like games, products and events. Chloe, in collaboration with Atul Varma, will build themed arcades with teens in Brooklyn by developing a browser based tool called Minicade that makes it easy to collaboratively create an arcade of mini games with friends while learning to code along the way. http://varelidi.com/
Atul Varma enjoys building bridges of understanding between humans and machines. He has written software that’s been used as the centerpiece of TED Talks, in maker events around the world, and by individuals who are just trying to have a less frustrating time using their computer. But his favorite moments are very personal: understanding where another person is coming from, constructing a metaphor they can relate to, and using it to explain technology in a way that liberates, excites, and empowers. http://www.toolness.com/wp/
Joanne McNeill is a writer and researcher interested in the ways technology is shaping art, politics, and society. At Eyebeam, she will develop safe spaces for women in art and technology, on and off the internet, including digital art projects and community organizing that focuses on fighting structural prejudice with structural solutions. http://joannemcneil.com
Allison Burtch has worked on projects such as the Dumb Store - a mobile app store for dumbphones™, co-organized the Drones and Aerial Robotics Conference at New York University and was the editor of the “Occupied Wall Street Journal”, a six-edition print publication translated into six languages. At Eyebeam, she will make a sine-wave generator that creates frequencies at 24khz, enough to block iPhones and Androids microphones from audio recording, protecting people from self-censorship in an age of constant surveillance. http://www.allisonburtch.net/
