The show that brought you the True Love Tinder Robot and the texting hoodie is back on May 15 and 16, 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), faculty members Tom Igoe (Arduino) and Daniel Shiffman (Processing Foundation, The Coding Train!) and LED visual artist Leo Villareal.
The spring exhibition will be held Tuesday, May 15 from 4-8 p.m. and Wednesday, May 16 from 4-8 p.m. at the NYU Tisch Building at 721 Broadway, 4th Floor South, Manhattan. Descriptions of this year’s projects are listed at ITP's website. For more information, call 212-998-1880 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
