New York Trip: Day Four

Today, we visited the Museum of the Moving Image an exciting building based on Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in the heart of Queens. We met Chris Wisniewski, MoMI’s Director of Education, to discuss their extensive after-school digital arts and new media based programs, including video games design and programming.

Later, we headed over to a studio in West Manhattan to meet artist GH Hovagimyan, one of the first artists to work with the Internet in the early 1990s. GH showed us some of his projects currently in development, along with some previous work, for example Plazaville.

GH gave some excellent advice for upcoming young artists.
