About Harvestworks

Harvestworks’ presents experimental art in collaboration with the Technology, Engineering, Art and Music (TEAM) Lab. Since 1977 Harvestworks has supported the creation of artwork that explores new and evolving technologies. In line with the historical E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology) we provide an environment for experimentation with technicians, instructors and innovative practitioners in the electronic arts. Former Harvestworks’ residents, who have also used technology in their art practice, include established artists, such as Christian Marclay, Luke Dubois and Cory Arcangel.


The New York Electronic Art Festival is produced by Harvestworks and was created to provide a responsive public context for the appreciation of cutting-edge electronic artwork through concerts, workshops, and exhibitions of the highest quality across the arts and technology spectrum.


This program was produced in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs,  mediaThe foundation, inc., Cycling74 and in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts’ Electronic Media and Film Presentation Funds grant program, administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.


Victoria Vesna is working in collaboration with evolutionary biologist Chuck Taylor and physicist Takashi Ikegami + the Art Sci collective featuring Max Kazemzadeh and Joel Ong. Supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. IIS-1125423 and the David Bermant Foundation.
