Our friend Marko Manriquez and his fellow creatives at 319 Scholes are pleased to announce that they are hosting a "huge interactive hacking event"in their 3,000 sf exhibition space in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Art Hack Day is (somewhat contrary to its name) a 48-hour marathon of digital creative activity—"part happening, part hackathon"—featuring "many prominent hackers, netartists and geeks in their respective fields will spend 3 days straight creating amazing works of interactivity, digital fabrication and DIY."
Art Hack Day is an event dedicated to cracking open the process of art making, with special reverence toward open-source technologies. Between January 26-28, artists and collaborators will inhabit 319 Scholes to create and explore the participatory nature of technology, bringing together hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is technology. The event will be streamed to online audiences, who will be encouraged to participate through various platforms to be listed on the ArtHackDay.net website. Visitors are invited to engage and interact with the projects online throughout the hack, as well as join the teams on Saturday night starting at 7:00pm for a closing exhibition, live performances, and a massive party.
