She creates technological couture; with systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' systems on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them.
Nicky Case plays with play. They make interactive explanations, to help people understand the world, and interactive stories, to help people understand themselves.
Alexander is an experimental photographer. He combines an appreciation for photographic traditions with emerging computational photography and scanning methods. His work has taken him from Greece investigating the minute surfaces of artifacts, to South Korea investigating the role of video games in the lives of one of the most wired societies on earth.
Paola is our favorite curator ever, and that's that. As the Senior Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA, (NYC) she put together flat-out awesome exhibitions including "Design and the Elastic Mind" (2008) and "Talk To Me" (2011). Both of which include several Eyeo heroes. She thinks about how design and technology intersect and how they affect life as we know it.

Her practice involves collecting, tagging and cataloguing, and she's often been compared to a natural scientist – specifically, a lepidopterist.
Since 2003, Tactical Tech’s mission has been to advance the skills, tools, and techniques of rights advocates, empowering them to use information and communications to help marginalized communities understand and effect progressive social, environmental, and political change.
Lynn is a data analysis and visualization consultant and currently a visiting Knight Fellow at University of Miami. Her passion is text visualization, and she is developing an educational toolset to make this easier for non-specialists with collaborators at Bocoup.com.
Luke DuBois is a composer, artist, and performer who explores the temporal, verbal, and visual structures of cultural and personal ephemera. Stemming from his investigations of “time-lapse phonography,” his work is a sonic and encyclopedic relative to time-lapse photography. Just as a long camera exposure fuses motion into a single image, his projects reveal the average sonority, visual language, and vocabulary in music, film, text, or cultural information.
Winslow is a director, creative technologist and producer who has always been fascinated with the possibilities of how the intersection of art and technology can elevate storytelling. He is the co-creator & producer of the VR film ‘Giant’. (On view at Eyeo)

Through participatory research, she works collaboratively to build interactive installations and to develop odd wearables. She is the co-host of speculative talk show Hyperopia: 20/30 Vision on bel-air radio and the Assistant Director of POWRPLNT, a digital art collaboratory.
Kyle is an artist who works in the open with code. He spends a significant amount of time building tools that allow artists to use new algorithms in creative ways. He enjoys creatively subverting networked communication and computation, exploring glitch and embedded biases, and extending these concepts to reversal of everything from personal identity to work habits.

Tega is an artist and environmental engineer from Sydney, Australia working at the intersection of art, ecology and engineering. Her work is a form of eccentric engineering and it reimagines quotidian technologies to address their politics. It takes the form of site specific interventions, dysfunctional devices, experimental infrastructures and information representations (sometimes using underpants).
Hannah explores the electrical properties of materials and traditional and contemporary craft techniques, developing new techniques for building electronics that emphasize materiality and process. She believes that this will allow us to build electronics that are more diverse, understandable and expressive than electronics currently are.
Darius is an internet artist working under the moniker Tiny Subversions.
