The academic programs in Integrated Digital Media (IDM) at NYU Tandon School of Engineering consist of both Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees, as well as an accelerated BS/MS program. In these programs, digital media is explored as a spectrum of practices that range from computer programming (for app development, software design, game development and interaction design) to 2D and 3D graphics (for human-computer interfaces, augmented reality, motion capture, and game design & development) to photography, film, and audio (for media installations, performing arts research, and integration with various mediums). Our students are artists, engineers and entrepreneurs working in highly fluid industries that reward the creative, the thoughtful, the technical, and the innovative.528
by Lajuné McMillian, NYU Integrated Digital Media Undergraduate Senior
528 is a performance/installation about communication on a visceral level through meditation and mindfulness. The performance takes place both inside and outside a geodesic dome which acts as a barrier between the audience and the performer. The performer's only task is to be in the moment without thinking of past or future moments as projections of fractals juxtaposed with the universe are projected on her body .Her heart beat controls the outside of the dome with the audience , while the audience's temperature controls the inside of the dome with the performer. Through being in the moment, the audience is able to communicate to the performer and vice versa, without words or planned gestures. Urbanamino
by Matthew Conto, NYU Integrated Digital Media Undergraduate SeniorUrbanamino
explores how a city building game, like SimCity, might function when the people, the businesses, and developers of a city have a stake in shaping their city. By using a voting system, Urbanamino
introduces an element of organic unpredictability to simulating the growth of a modern urban environment.
