Catch of the Day! The ITP Spring Show, May 10-11

Come join some big fish in a big pond at the ITP Spring Show 2009, a two-day festival of interactive sight, sound and technology from
the student artists and innovators at ITP. This event is of course FREE and open to the public.

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 220 students, but also to an extended network of the technology industry's most daring and prolific practitioners.

Some of the coolest projects I've seen include Controlling the Computer in the Mud, Painting Robots, An Alarm Clock that needs a hug and the most beautiful display of lights controlled by wind. Everything there should be pretty amazing though. Hope you can join!

Monday, May 11 from 5 to 9pm
Where: Tisch School of the Arts
