I recently curated and hosted a panel on Eccentric Engineering at Eyebeam’s South Street Seaport space, inviting artists Karolina Soebecka, Danja Vasiliev and Ramsey Nasser to discuss recent experiments exploring infrastructural space from eccentric and critical perspectives. Karolina spoke of her recent work on geo-engineering, including projects on cloud seeding and on developing new plants to support cloud bacteria. Ramsey discussed the trials and tribulations of creating a programming language in Arabic as well as presenting re-Kindle which is an attempt to hack the kindle and Danja talked about the philosophy and goals behind the critical engineering manifesto. What. a. line-up.
Details of the event are here. with more documentation will be posted soon.
