ITP Spring Show is a public, two-day showcase of the next wave in creative technology, encompassing VR, AR, wearable tech, and myriad other projects created by students engaged in the "recently possible."
The show that brought you the True Love Tinder Robot and the texting hoodie is back on May 16 and 17, when students at the NYU Tisch Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) will mount their annual interactive spring exhibition. The two-day event, free and open to the public, allows attendees to view and interact with what Gizmodo has described as “the weirdest, coolest, most insanely inspired geek projects around.”
Officially known as the “center for the recently possible,” the Tisch ITP program has attracted worldwide attention as an incubator for technologically minded artists seeking to merge the latest in “maker” technology to foster social, political and artistic expression, as well as practical applications. Established in 1979 and molded by the legendary “Godmother of Silicon Alley” Red Burns , ITP program has produced graduates that 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.
The spring exhibition will be held Tuesday, May 16 from 5-9 p.m. and Wednesday, May 17, from 4-8 p.m. at the NYU Tisch Building at 721 Broadway, 4th Floor South, Manhattan. This year’s projects will start getting listed on the ITP show website one week before the show. For more information, call 212-998-1880 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
