Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
Tomorrow, the doors of 319 Scholes open for the public unveiling of the 48-hour projects that were created during Art Hack Day at the East Williamsburg art/tech space.
Today, Hyperallergic got a guided tour by Nahana Schelling and Olaf Mathé of the behind the scene action that the invited team of hackers are producing as they realize their digital projects.
319 Scholes is a hotspot for the tech/art nexus that has a natural home in New York. Art Hack Day aims to bring “together hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is technology.” The space is rich with technological resources and Marko Manriquez of Fabricator’s Guild showed us their Trotec Speed 300 laser printer, which is hooked up to cut into almost any surface you can image. His work on the outside of the 319 space, using moss and an adhesive, was pretty lovely. I liked the idea that a sign can grow and change, transforming a brick wall into a home for a living organism, though they’ll have to replace that soon enough, no?
Here is a small and incomplete visual tour of some of the evolving projects that should whet you appetite and encourage you to visit their big party tomorrow night, Saturday, January 28 (7-9pm), which will be followed by a DJ event.
The Art Hack Day exhibition is open to the public Sat Jan 28 7pm-9pm at 319 Scholes (319 Scholes Street, East Williamsburg, Brooklyn)
