Interactive Youth Exhibition

Interactive Youth—Exhibition of Innovative Interactive Works of Design From Fresh New Talent—EXTENDED until August 17, 2007

Due to overwhelming interest in the exhibition Interactive Youth, Material ConneXion Inc. has decided to extend the duration of the exhibition until August 17, 2007.

From solar bikinis to reactive snowboards to interactive friendship bracelets to rotating orbs—Michael DelGaudio, Anne Hong, Andrew Schneider, and James Nick Sears blow up the mold with objects that keep us “in touch” with the things we desire. Fresh talent and fresh technology from the New York University Interactive Telecommunications Program, these recent graduates embark on visions that are refreshingly tangible and simultaneously digital. Challenging our notions of what we think is possible, these young luminaries represent a generation of new designers investigating the relationship between materials and technology—they truly are "connected".

Materials are the building-blocks for these technologies and exchanges. With innovative material developments like conductive ceramics, E ink, fiber optics, and photovoltaic cells, it is becoming possible for us to engage more readily with our surroundings, and to establish new dialogues about how we interact. As we develop these interactive technologies, we can anticipate their place in our homes, on our stuff, and in our bodies—the future is in these technologies, and it talks back.

The Material ConneXion showroom is open Monday Through Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

The address is:
Material ConneXion
127 West 25th Street, Floor 2 (Between 6th and 7th Avenues)
New York, NY 10001
