Innovation On Display at ITP Spring Show

May 6, 2013
N-316

The show that brought you the self-watering plant, the invisibility necklace and the raccoon robot is back on May 20 and 21, when students at the NYU Interactive Technology Program (ITP) mount their annual spring exhibition. The two-day event will feature all recent interactive media works by ITP students.

ITP is a two-year graduate program within in the NYU Tisch School of the Arts designed to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies and how they might augment, improve, and inspire. Established in 1979, ITP graduates have gone on to develop internationally renowned products, companies and works of art. Alumni include Dennis Crowley (Foursquare), Tom Igoe (Arduino) and LED visual artist Leo Villareal.

“These exhibitions are an integral part of the ITP program, whose philosophy centers upon a hands-on approach to learning that relies on collaboration rather than competition, fostering a environment where exploration, analysis, risk-taking and experimentation can occur,” said Dan O’Sullivan, Chair of the ITP program. “Our curriculum is devoted to teaching the practice and theory that emerge from the convergence of new media technologies, and so we challenge students to apply their creativity and imagination to the latest digital tools and techniques. The results of this challenge surprise us year after year.”

The spring exhibition will be held at the NYU Tisch Building at 721 Broadway, 4th Floor South, New York, NY 10003. For more information, call 212-998-1880 or email itp.inquiries@nyu.edu.
