Tech: Cyborg Artist

Neil Harbisson is a cyborg. Here, dressed in C-major, he talks about how using adaptive technology opened up his world, and allowed him to explore new paths of artistic expression. As we approach the 1-year mark of our exploration of new technology for artmaking, research, and interacting with amazing people, communities,  and resources, via the world wide web,…

Monday Funday

In The Studio What better way to cruise into a new week than working on projects in the studio.  Yesterday was Monday– a studio day, when the EC artists are working on personal visual and performing arts projects. Studio 1: Studio 2:  

Yadira’s Dance Project

The Right Way

Ask ten artists, trained or untrained, for input on a particular medium or technique, and you’ll get ten different suggestions about the right way.  The ways may differ slightly or drastically.  The artists may be hardcore insistent, defensively indignant, or “whatevs” ambivalent about their way.  Get those ten artists together, and they’ll discuss and debate…

In The Studio: Anna At Work

Dear friends… This is the 2nd post of this video. I had to delete the first post, because I realized that I had uploaded the wrong video to YouTube.  (What?!!)

In (And Out Of) The Studio

Break Time! Every artist needs to get out of the studio from time to time.  To get out into the fresh air, stretch the legs, take a moment to reflect, or just have a snack. The EC artists are no exception.  We are in the studio 5 hours a day, 5 days a week, 12 months…

New Year’s Resolutions

We all have them, whether boldly stated, quietly muttered, or secretly pondered– resolutions for what we will (or will not) do or accomplish in the New Year.  Resolutions are easy to make, but not so easy to keep.  Still, recognizing that a change is desired or necessary, and being open to that change, is a…

Digital Arts with Paul Longo

There is a slideshow of art and artists at end of post. What’s this? How do you– Ooooh, I get it. Cool! New technology inspires apprehension in some people, but not in the EC artists.  They’re explorers.  They are used to learning and exploring new ways of artmaking.  The iPad screen is just a new surface,…
