Eyebeam needs your help!
Eyebeam, the leading American organization supporting artists that work with technology, is launching a Kickstarter campaign to build a new, more public entrance into our building in Chelsea’s gallery district. This renovation will give us and you a multi-use exhibition and presentation space in addition to our existing bookstore. To do this, we need your help.
New Courses & Events at 3rd Ward! (and don’t forget to vote)
Our members are designers and visionaries that we love to support.
We love The Sounder, a gorgeous amplifier that has a simplicity of form and function that’s super travel-friendly. Inventor Howard Fink is a dedicated 3rd Ward member.
The Sounder is an iPad and iPhone stand and natural amplifier that doubles the volume when you place your iPad in the slot.. No wires or plugs, just amplification with this handy stand.
Each piece is made from wood salvaged from 19th century factories or reclaimed from demolition sites. Each Sounder has a bit of history, a wholly modern piece crafted from the wood of 200 yr old trees.
Here’s his Kickstarter video. Help Howard bring The Sounder to production by donating today!
