Eyebeam Off-The-Grid, on Governors Island, is a project to critically investigate cultural change and emergent technologies within a situation far outside the urban comfort zone of wired high-speed life. The island is without a dedicated internet connection or much cell phone coverage and is accessed only by ferries which run on the hour. It is the perfect place for Eyebeam to go unplugged.

The project is comprised of two phases: Open House and Exhibition. In the Open House portion, artists will open their daily practice to the public, inviting visitors to see firsthand research and creation of works that play on homespun narratives of digital labor and intimacies of interior architectures. During the Exhibition period, the artists will present public works that take full advantage of the isolation of the island.

All activities will take place on Governors Island in House 15 (follow the link for ferry schedule and directions).
