Virtual Intangible Interaction Gallery

(which only exists here on this website :)

* This assignment replaces the individual field trip, which has became impossible as all cultural venues close due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Due: Blog post by 9pm on Wednesday, March 24

I invite you to the virtual Intangible Interaction Gallery that just opened. I curated three virtual exhibitions for you. Each exhibition has a different theme and each features artists or a group of work that demonstrate different aspects of intangible interaction.

Pick one of the virtual exhibitions and take a tour. That said, pick one of the exhibitions you’re interested in, take a look at the listed work, and research the artist/work (e.g., read about the artist, read about work, research how the technical aspects are implemented…).

Make a brief blog post about your tour to the exhibition, answering some of the questions below:

  • Which exhibition did you see? How did you feel about the show?
  • What is your favorite work if you had?
  • What did you like about the piece?
  • How is intangible interaction used in the piece?
  • If you were the artist, what would you have done differently?

Feel free to work together with any of your classmates over Zoom or any other online communication tools. Here’s a resource for using Zoom with your NYU account.

Make sure to visit the library before/after seeing the exhibits.
