Interactive Youth -- from recent NYU ITP graduates
Material Connexion, 127 W. 25th Street
M-F, 9am - 6pm. Until August 17
"From solar bikinis to reactive snowboards to interactive friendship bracelets to rotating orbs, Michael DelGaudio, Anne Hong, Andrew Schneider, and Nick Sears blow up the mold with objects that keep us "in touch" with the things we desire. Fresh talent and fresh technology from the New York University Interactive Telecommunications Program, these recent graduates embark on visions that are refreshingly tangible and simultaneously digital. Challenging our notions of what we think is possible, these young luminaries represent a generation of new designers investigating the relationship between materials and technology. They truly are connected.
Materials are the building-blocks for these technologies and exchanges. With innovative material developments like conductive ceramics, E ink, fiber optics, and photovoltaic cells, it is becoming possible for us to engage more readily with our surroundings, and to establish new dialogues about how we interact. As we develop these interactive technologies, we can anticipate their place in our homes, on our stuff, and in our bodies: the future is in these technologies, and it talks back."
2007 International Artists-In-Residence Exhibition
Location One, 26 Greene Street (between Canal and Grand)
Tues-Sat, 12-6pm, June 2 - July 28
"While Location One seeks to nurture a critical awareness of the implications of technology for contemporary society in both our artists-in-residence and our audiences, and on a practical level, to introduce artists to the possibilities of new media in their art practice, the work we exhibit covers a full spectrum: painting, sculpture, video, digital, audio, installation and performance. It is the convergence of artists working in all these areas which is of paramount interest to us. We believe that collaborations across multiple disciplines, and conversations from many perspectives, produce rich insights and raise critical questions."
I've never been here, but I've meant to -- they seem to be very media-art oriented.
