My Utopias

Speaker: Prof. Tom IgoeInteractive Telecommuncations Program, New York University



One of the challenges for emerging artists and scientists is articulate their ideals and to identify how they can realize those ideals through their work. At the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU, we’re continually looking for new ways to help students to find the intersection between their ideals and the skills they’re developing.  In this talk I’ll present a number of projects from ITP and other sources that embody this goal,  blending technology development with activism, social equity, storytelling, and caregiving.

Short bio:

Tom Igoe is an associate arts professor at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. Coming from a background in theatre lighting design, Igoe believes that all interactive technology design should start with the motivations and actions of the people for whom they're designed. His research interests include physical interaction design, networks, sustainability in technology development, and monkeys. At ITP, he is the aread head for physical computing courses. He has written four books for makers and he is an occasional contributor to Make magazine as well. He is a co-founder of arduino.cc, an open source microcontroller environment. He has consulted for various museums and interactive design companies as well. He is currently living a personal dream of working with monkeys, and wants to visit Svalbard someday.
