New York City’s MTA may be the overheated bane of the city’s summer commute, but that doesn’t make the ubiquitous transportation system any less iconic. And the aesthetics of that more than 100-year old system are as relevant as ever — the metro subway bench serves as the inspiration for the ongoing 2016 partnership between DKNY and NEW INC.
In her presentation at Demo Day 2016, Luisa Pereira reflected on how her projects and creative path have evolved in her two years as a NEW INC member. Her presentation has been edited and reformatted for this context.
We were thrilled to host a Demo Day this July to give our extended community a glimpse of the most recent projects, products, and ideas developed at NEW INC in our program’s second year. We recorded each presentation and have collected them here for viewing:
The Lab at NYC's inaugural Panorama Music and Arts Festival was an immersive an interactive exhibition dedicated to a new era of tech inspired artists. Unsurprisingly, NEW INC members were center-stage and we have the inside track on their projects that wowed festival-goers throughout the weekend.
Does online dating make you feel like you're part of a meat market? You're not alone. Hello Velocity have teamed up with Siren to launch the Meat Face campaign in order fight the swipe and bring some humanity back to the dating game.
We're thrilled to announce the NEW INC End-of-Year Showcase 2016: Public Beta! Taking its name from the "release early, release often" ethos of software development, this event offers an opportunity for this year's members to present the projects, products, prototypes, and ideas they have been developing this year — from design objects to virtual reality experiences, installations to performances.
To that end, we’re excited to present the first in a series of articles we’re calling “Small Bytes.” They’re transcribed conversations between our members, inspired by the topics we hear being debated on a daily basis when no one thinks we’re listening.
