Eyebeam is a nonprofit studio for collaborative experiments with technology toward a more imaginative and just world. By providing generous support to artists for research, production and education, Eyebeam makes ideas real.
Founded in 1997 in Brooklyn by John S. Johnson before moving to an iconic warehouse on West 21st street, Eyebeam was conceived as the very first critical space of its kind, for thinking creatively about how technology was transforming the world. As Chelsea changed, Eyebeam returned to Brooklyn and settled into a former industrial complex overlooking Sunset Park. The new studio hosted the first annual Eyebeam Award for Creativity and Courage, and the renewal of the core program. In those two decades, Eyebeam has made a habit of breaking new ground.
