Experiential: Eyebeam, wetagyou

Eyebeam’s Reclaim the Streets
Art and technology incubator Eyebeam will be hosting an interesting series of workshops next week, that will teach how to curate instant outdoor art exhibits. Eyebeam resident artist Christina Kral will help participants reclaim the streets and incorporate street art and everyday elements into an ad-hoc outdoor exhibition. Helping to lend participants a critical eye to their neighborhoods, the program is “an exercise in public intervention, curatorial practice, documentation, and locative media”. Reclaim the Streets is free, and happens November 3, 5 & 7th at Eyebeam, 540 W. 21st St., NYC

BBH has unveiled ‘Wetagyou’, a tongue-in-cheek ‘analog photo tagging platform’. Reversing the usual tagging process, where photos are taken and then tagged online, BBH asked partygoers to first tag themselves with geek speak stickers and then have their photo taken. With a choice of over 150 nonsensical tags, ranging from memelord to lolcat to pedophile, partygoers could then search for their photo at www.wetagyou.com.
