Arts@CERN in collaboration with GOSH! 2016


Tom Igoe, Associate Arts Professor, ITP, NYU
“My Utopias”
One of the challenges for emerging artists and scientists is to 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.

Welcome Speech by Monica Bello, Head of Arts@CERN, and by Tara Shears Experimental Particle Physicist.

Arts@CERN Guest Artists, Dmitry Gelfand and Evelina Domnitch (web link).
