A Groundbreaking New Exhibition of Tech Art, Maker Workshops and Electronic Music Performances

On Friday and Saturday May 12-13, the computer art departments of ten area universities will be united for the first time ever in New York City. 

Stronger Together, a joint art exhibition featuring software and electronic art by CTW partner university faculty and alumni, also includes a selection of electronic music performances and free Maker workshops teaching 3D printing and modeling, DIY electronics assembly, generative graphics, Arduino and Raspberry Pi (be sure to reserve your free spot).   The exhibit celebrates the explosion of technology onto the global art and music scene and highlights the leaders at our educational epicenters for technological innovation in the arts.

Come experience the work of artists and educators who are driving forces in guiding and facilitating the next generation of innovators in technological arts, as we uncover intersections in aesthetic and conceptual inquiries across academic programs at ten area universities.  The exhibition includes art installations incorporating a wide range of technologies and media including Virtual Reality; Augmented Reality; 3D printing; CNC router milling; custom or recycled electronics; custom software; the Internet; custom video game consoles and joysticks; photo manipulation; data visualizations; drone video; algorithms; speech synthesis; and tablets, smartphones, flat screens, projectors, computers, microphones, sensors and speakers. 

Produced by Leaders in Software and Art (LISA) for Creative Tech Week in conjunction with Exhibition Director Akaash Mehta, Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, Plan 23, Columbia University, CUNY and the Lady Tech Guild.  Organizers include Isabel Draves, President of Creative Tech Week and Founder of LISA; Carol Parkinson, Director of Harvestworks; Wolfgang von Stuermer (aka WvS), Representative of Plan 23; and Michael Merck, Co-Director of the Knockdown Center.
