BYOBeamer: Bring Your Own Beamer Party
Antonio Roberts, Host
You are invited to join us for the first Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB)
at Stony Brook University. Taking part is easy: just bring your beamer
(digital projector) and something to be screened!
BYOB is a series of one-night exhibitions where artists are invited to
bring their own beamers and explore the medium of projection by
creating a collaborative happening of moving light, sound and
performance. On March 4th from 22:00 onwards we will fill Union
Ballroom and University Cafe at Stony Brook University with artists,
each of them armed with their own beamer.
The simple terms and guidelines:
* RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to secure a spot.
* Open to anyone, including those outside the university.
* Bring your own beamer/projector, video playback device and extension cord.
* We can provide power sockets and some extension cables.
* Find your own spot on the day.
* Use any surface to beam on, including ceilings and floors.
* Places allocated on a first come, first served basis.
* Participants are welcome to set up at University Ballroom and Cafe from 5pm.
* Participants are responsible for the safety of their own equipment.
* All ages welcome in the University Ballroom, but ages 21+ allowed in
the University Cafe
We will have a limited amount of beamers that can be booked on the
night. Please get in contact if you need one. These will be allocated
on a first come, first served basis.
BYOB is an idea by Rafaël Rozendaal. BYOB Stony Brook is curated by
Antonio Roberts as part of fGlitch.
