Imagine robots drawing, cotton candy-driven performances by Emilie Baltz and Phil Sierzega and art meeting technology in a way that’s so creative it borders on mind-blowing. This is the latest interactive showcase at Red Bull Studios New York, a collaboration with the New Museum‘s founding NEW INC class, and trust us, you’ve got to see it…
What: NEW INC End of Year Showcase
Where: Red Bull Studios New York, 220 West 18th Street, until July 30.
City: New York
Why we loved it…
The sheer volume and variation of innovation and artistry in one space. NEW INC offers a cutting-edge platform for creatives to work together under one roof through different mediums spanning art, design and technology, their concepts of which are debuted at Red Bull Studios New York.
A must-see work? Check out “LUMA” from Lisa Park and Kevin Siwoff – an interactive, sound-responsive light sculpture that resembles a cluster of “sea urchins.” The sculpture is made from millions of fiber optic strands and illuminating LED panels when activated by sound.
The Gift Shop – Located on the basement level, The Gift Shop is a collaborative project with Alldayeveryday, which draws inspiration from a traditional museum gift shop, but pushes its boundaries with the idea of product versus artwork.
The showcase, as well as The Gift Shop, will remain open through July 30th before making way for Red Bull Studios’ winter iteration, so be sure to check back for what’s to come.
