Founded in 1997, Eyebeam is an art and technology center that provides the space and state-of-the-art tools for digital experimentation. Since its beginning, artists, programmers, hackers, activists, technologists, kids and adults have come to Eyebeam to share ideas, find collaborators, experiment with new tools and create new work.



DDC is a digital arts education program for New York City high school students who are interested in experimenting, learning and creating with new technology tools. DDC demonstrates how exposure, training, and creating with multi-media tools can help prepare high school students for productive participation in the digital age.

DDC 2007 will focus on taking art and actions to the streets. Students will engage in urban research in the form of public interactions and street art. Participants study the techniques, politics and groups involved in executing such projects, and learn about the practice and theory behind participatory actions, art, and activism. DDC students will develop individual and team projects derived from their communities and lives. At the conclusion of each week of DDC; the projects will be displayed in n evolving 5-week long exhibition alongside the projects installed in Eyebeam’s 10 year exhibition.
