An Apocalyptic Shift At Eyebeam [NYC Event]

What have you done to prepare for December 21st? Built a bomb shelter? Bought a boat? Constructed a green house?

Regardless of the measures you’ve taken (or lack there of), you should check out Apocalyptic Shift, a Flock House Project Benefit that imagines a post-industrial landscape centralized around migratory, public, sculptural habitats that are movable, modular, and able to merge. The event combines music, video, technology, and performance to create a digital dystopia, and is going down at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center on April 26, from 7-12 PM, in collaboration with Fellow Mary Mattingly’s Flock House Project.

Inspired by global human migration, immigration and pilgrimage, Flock House is built upon reclaimed, redesigned, and rethought materials within a culture. With wider adoption of natural systems like rainwater capture, inner-city agriculture, and solar energy harnessing, the project attempts to create mobile living systems that are interstitial, simultaneously autonomous and dependent on their local community, and shared amongst human beings. Check out this video to learn more.

A number of talented and accomplished musicians and artists are involved in the event. Expect to see works and performances from Yoshi Sodeoka, Sabrina Ratte, Max Hattler, Sara Ludy, Young Magic, Warm Ghost, and Chrome Canyon, among others.

So, if you’re not too busy adding your name to this very official 2012 Believers List, then head over to Eyebeam for some apocalyptic antics. See ya there!
