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.
