NY1 Geeks Out With GeekDown


NY1 stopped by 92YTribeca to report on the GeekDown exhibit, where interactive art, video and music are on display at 92YTribeca:

An ultra-funky song cabinet is just one of several pieces of high tech artwork on display at 92YTribeca’s second annual GeekDown, and none of it’s about to pop up in Pottery Barn or Crate & Barrel.

“The kind of vision of GeekDown is thinking about new technology specific to computers and digital technology and how does that really meet and combine with creative self-expression. There are sound installations, there’s video art, lots of different things happening in this space,” says Aaron Miller of 92YTribeca.

Among the sound installations is “Tape Translation,” which allows users to manipulate the playback of those old analog cassette tapes, thereby reminding people as to how the endangered species of media works.

Watch the segment here, and check out a fantastic array of photos from the exhibit over at 92YTribeca’s Flickr page.

The exhibit runs until September 9.
