Eyeo is a three day conference that takes place in Minneapolis, MN. It is a gathering where many come to explore and learn about art, technology, information and the interaction of all three. The festival’s tagline is “Converge to Inspire,” and inspire it does.
Since its iteration (2011) there has been a clear spike in interest. Last year the event sold out in eight hours, this year it sold out in less than three. Topics and talks range from creative coding, to data visualization, to new media, all the way to wearable technologies. There were many talks that inspired me to create and delve deeper into the “maker” side of the digital humanities, but there was one talk in particular that left an impression on me. Amit Pitaru’s Sharp Corners focused on the evolution of his work, installations, how we learn, and problem solving. It was the part about how we learn that left me with a warm fuzzy. Watch his talk below to see his work and how he explains learning curve.
