ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Since its inception in 2011, the team behind the Eyeo Festival has been inspired by the notion that this decade presents an exceptionally exciting time to be interested in art, interaction, and information. The way we experience all three is changing. The way all three interact and overlap is quickly evolving. Easier access to powerful tools and technologies continues to increase. What data is, where it comes from, and how we utilize it, looks different than ever before.
What can we do with it all? What can’t we do? Artists, designers and coders build and bend technology to see what’s possible. What’s next with interaction, what’s revealed by the data. Eyeo brings together the most intriguing and exciting people in these arenas today.
We start with a day of pre-festival workshops and the 3rd edition of the Eyeo Summit – this year’s theme is Code+Activism. That night we kick off Eyeo with keynotes and a mixer. Then it’s three days of inspirational talks, demos, and labs and plenty of opportunities to connect with people whose extraordinary creations are pushing the envelope. The line up is amazing. A cast of more than 40 brilliant individuals creates one amazing collection of talent and insight. Add yourself to the mix, and it just gets better. Converge to Inspire – Indeed.

CELEBRATING 5 YEARS
2015 marked the 5th Anniversary of the Eyeo Festival. To celebrate we assembled a fantastic book. The 250 page softcover book is both a nice trip down memory lane and as well as great resource for digestible doses of insight & inspiration from the most interesting and successful people in the community.
We reached out to every speaker to ever to grace the Eyeo stage to from 2011 to 2015, and feature them in spread that includes a project they presented at Eyeo, plus some new thoughts from them regarding their path, process and what inspires them. The book also includes forwards by Golan Levin and Paola Antonelli, brief recaps of each year by Jer Thorp, as well as complete listings of the sessions and workshops that took to place. We’ve also thrown in some highlights from the various posters and shirts designed for Eyeo over the years. Plus an all new ‘Eyeo Influence Map’ by Moritz Stefaner.
Yes. The books are pressed and they’re beautiful. We have a limited supply of extra copies that remain for sale. Books orders will be shipped biweekly.
