Hi everyone, as promised here are some impressions from MobileArtCon 2010 at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. “Held over two days, the conference featured multiple events, including a review of iPhone drawing and painting apps, a forum on printing mobile art, a lecture on the evolution of digital art, and a talk on the mobile photography movement (that would be us). It concluded with an evening exhibition entitled Illuminated Touch (once again) at Openhouse Gallery”. (Macworld article) It was a great experience meeting so many creative personalities at such an inspiring venue. A big thanks to iAMDA (The International Association of Mobile Digital Artists) for organizing this event. We are sure it won’t be the last conference and we are more than happy to get involved in future ventures, especially when it comes to promoting the field of mobile photography in the digital arts world.

The location

Entering ITP basically feels like stepping into the largest playground for grownups you have ever seen. An oversized Greenwich Village loft houses the computer labs, rotating exhibitions, and production workshops that are ITP — the Interactive Telecommunications Program. Founded in 1979 as the first graduate education program in alternative media, ITP has grown into a living community of technologists, theorists, engineers, designers, and artists uniquely dedicated to pushing the boundaries of interactivity in the real and digital worlds. It’s an amazing place fostering creativity and collaboration among  its students and visitors. Go, check it out if you get the chance in New York!
