ADJACENT’s mission is to share research, reflection, observations, and opinions from and for the diverse creators who are exploring the possibilities and directions at the frontiers of emerging media

ADJACENT was made possible by a Tisch Faculty Grant. Special thanks to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Dean, Allyson Green, and ITP’s Chair and the Associate Dean for Emerging Media, Dan O’Sullivan for their support. 

ITP, short for the Interactive Telecommunications Program, is a two-year graduate program located in the NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. We explore the imaginative use of communications technologies — how they might augment, improve, and bring delight and art into people’s lives. Perhaps the best way to describe us is as a Center for the Recently Possible.

IMA NYC is NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts NYU’s new four year interdisciplinary undergraduate Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Interactive Media Arts (IMA). We are now accepting applications for our inaugural class in the Fall of 2018.

Two other NYU/ Tisch undergraduate IMA programs  are located in Shanghai and  Abu Dhabi.


ADJACENT is indebted and dedicated to the spirit of Red Burns. She haunts us in the most wonderful way in all that we do at ITP.
