Innovation on Display at ITP Winter Show, December 15 & 16

December 3, 2013

Drug delivery drones, a portable air quality visualization tool, a mobile app for crowdsourcing news video and a kinetic sculpture of computer-controlled mirrors were among the more than 100 projects featured at semi-annual show of the NYU Tisch Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) last spring. On Sunday, December 15 and Monday, December 16, the show returns, giving the public a free peek at the future through projects created by students of the world-renown digital convergence program.

A two-year graduate program within in the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, ITP is designed to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies and how they might augment, improve, and inspire. Since the program was established in 1979, ITP graduates have gone on to develop internationally renowned products, companies and works of art.

In 2013 alone, two projects developed by ITP students through the program went on to gain wider application – including RapidFTR, which is being used by UNICEF to reunite refugees with their families, and Stringwire, a digital framework for requesting and broadcasting live video through mobile devices, which was bought by NBCUniversal. ITP alumni include Dennis Crowley, CEO of Foursquare, who developed his Dodgeball application while at ITP; Tom Igoe, a chief architect of the Arduino computer language; and LED visual artist Leo Villarreal.

The winter exhibition will be held at the NYU Tisch Building at 721 Broadway, 4th Floor South, New York, NY 10003, from 2-6 p.m., Sunday, December 15 and from 4-8 p.m., Monday, December 16. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, call 212-998-1880 or email
