E Y E B E A M | atelier SOCIAL NETWORK SOIREE: DISCUSSION, CHAMPAGNE, EXPERIMENT
‘Eyebeam, the not-for-profit organization dedicated to art and technology, will host an interdisciplinary panel discussion entitled Social Network Soirée: Discussion, Champagne, Experiment. The event will take place on May 14, 2002 at 6:30pm in Eyebeam’s space in Chelsea located at 540 West 21st Street, between 10th and 11th Aves. The discussion will address the social dynamics that drive fashion trends, enable salacious gossip, fuel Internet crazes and sustain corporate power structures. Each panelist will use social network analysis to explain a transformation in art, technology, or culture. A cocktail party will follow the discussion, where guests wear wireless badges called meme tags that track and analyze social interaction in real time. To participate in the experiment, guests will mingle, listen to freshly spun electronica, and sip complimentary mini-Moet champagne.”
