Be sure to go check out the Viewpoint installation art piece currently setup at the Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver. The eatART solar array has been installed for the 2 month project as part of the Capture Photography Festival.
Let there be light! After a few weekends of work the lab’s lighting has been seriously upgraded. It’s a huge improvement made possible by the hardworking volunteers of the Prosthesis film crew. They sourced the lights/bulbs and did a majority of the work for the install.
eatART Supporters! We are looking for captains and members of Watt Rider Teams for our 7th Annual “Powers the Vancouver Art Gallery” event on June 28th. Teams of 4 or 8 will ride for 45 minutes to raise funds for eatART. You can make a donation yourself to join, or ask your friends and family to sponsor you. While cycling, you will be generating the power needed for the sound stage to keep the party going! (Plus for there first time ever, there will be a beer and cider garden!)
You’ll also have a chance to see the progress on Titanoboa, Prosthesis: The Anti-Robot, Mondo Spider and Daisy’s new make over!
All are welcome to join or make a team! Just email our PTV lead, Chelsea at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mondo Spider has been packed up and shipped out to Russia as of April 30th! This marks the first time the spider has left the continent. If anyone happens to be in Moscow between May 15th-18th be sure to check out the massive Bal Robotov. Jon Tippett will be on a panel and doing a presentation about eatART and the Mondo Spider on the 17th.

We’ve finally outgrown our current lab on the Great Northern Way campus and are looking for new space in East Vancouver. Ideal areas include False Creek Flats, Mt Pleasant, Hastings Sunrise, Grandview woodland & Strathcona. We’ll be looking for +1500 sqft (ideally ~3000 sqft) of industrial or workshop space. Must haves include features like a concrete floor, +13′ high garage doors (Daisy is HUGE!) and 3phase 240v power.
Have a lead on space to rent or purchase? Contact us at email@example.com.
2014 will be the year we move to bigger lab!
Come join us for eatART’s 5th annual Energy Awareness Art fundraiser in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery on Saturday, July 6th! Stop by and check out the art, dance to the music and play! We also invite anyone with a custom made bike or ebike to come hang out and have a bit of a show and shine.
We’re proud to announce the inaugural issue of eatART magazine! It exists to bring you the latest and greatest of the growing energy aware art movement. The project was born out of editor in chief Peter Holmes’ realization that there is no public forum for works standing at the crossroads of art, technology, and education. eatART magazine completes the loop with a physical publication of international work representing this emerging genre of art.
For our first issue, we’re doing a crowd funding campaign through Crowd Supply. They’re a new website which not only hosts the campaign but will also be the printer of the magazine after the successful campaign. Check it out over here.
What has a seat, two pedals, and brews a mean espresso? No, not our lead engineer Curtis Perrin on a bike; it’s our latest project, the gSnails.
gBikes has partnered with local business owner Boyd Thomson to design and build a creative and sustainable way to power his business, in what will be gBikes’ first permanent installation. Working with a small grant provided by the LiveSmart BC: Small Business Champion Program, the idea was to design a functional and stylish piece that allows visitors to the Wilder Snail Cafe to generate their own electricity while enjoying a nice hot beverage.
