Eyebeam Annual Showcase

January 15, 2013

I am excited to participate in the Eyebeam annual showcase, opening Thursday! They are moving from a twice a year open studios show to a once a year retrospective of the work of residents and fellows from the past year. It is a great group of artists and looks like it will be a fantastic show.

I will be showing the latest developments in my Stranger Visions project, unveiling the first portrait derived from found material as well as a video documenting the process.


I will also be joining Eyebeam fellow Mark Shepard and curator Deborah Fisher from A Blade of Grass in a conversation about art and politics, idealism and ideas of progress on a panel this Saturday.

    Heather, Manu Sporny? Really? I was thinking something more along the lines of the ‘prisoners dilemma’, or at least the latest take on ‘synaptic function in relation to facial expression’… Well, Any who, Dave

      Hi Dave,
      Not sure what you mean exactly? The Manu Sporny portrait is a proof of concept for the larger stranger visions project.
      Also, some stranger comments about adobe were left here by your account, I couldn’t understand what they meant so I spammed them… hacked or?

        I was thrown off by the phonetic of manu sporny, sorry probably doing a litteral when I should have done a figurative…

    Are you doing more with DNA project? It is amazing. May I send you my DNA? I just turned 50. In good health and I see that you have made eveyone 25. I would love to celebrate my first halfcentury!

    If, not, 25 is a great age

    I also have fraternal twin boys which may be an interesting project.

    Please let me know

      Hi Lisa,
      Thanks for your interest! If you want to participate, the easiest thing to do is get profiled on and share your profile/data with me. Let me know if you would like to.

    Years ago I had a “Wouldn’t it be cool if …” moment about police using DNA to make a sketch of a perp’s face. I had no idea that we now know enough about the human genome to actually pull it off, and in 3D! How long does it take to create one face? How much does it cost to do it? Can you create guesses as to what those faces look like at more advanced ages, or is there software already that can take one of your faces and age it? Any plans to build a business around this (or license the technology to others to buld a business around it)? I’m surprised you don’t have police forces the world over beating down your door for this.
