A 2-day Explosion of Interactive Sight, Sound, and Technology!
The Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), a pioneering graduate center for the design and study of new media forms and applications in the Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, has announced its 2006 spring exhibition will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 9 & 10. Featured in this two-day explosion of interactive sight, sound, and technology from the student artists and innovators at ITP will be approximately 100 inventive projects ranging from experiments in interactive installations, physical and virtual interaction design, sound and video works, and screen-based works.
Entitled, ITP Spring Show 2006, the exhibition will be on view May 9 and 10 at the Tisch School of the Arts, located at 721 Broadway (at Waverly Place), 4th floor (south elevators). Hours are: Tuesday, May 9, from 5 to 9 p.m.; and Wednesday, May 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibition is open to the public and admission is free. (A photo I.D is required to enter the building.)

An oversized Greenwich Village loft houses the computer labs, rotating exhibitions, and production workshops that are ITP — the Interactive Telecommunications Program. Founded in 1979 as the first graduate education program in alternative media, ITP has grown into a living community of technologists, theorists, engineers, designers, and artists uniquely dedicated to pushing the boundaries of interactivity in the real and digital worlds. A hands-on approach to experimentation, production and risk-taking make this hi-tech fun house a creative home not only to its 230 students, but also to an extended network of the technology industry’s most daring and prolific practitioners.
