Our third Annual [ ESC ] salon & mixer is this Friday, Nov. 14 at Hunter. This is an event I work on every year with my colleagues at grad school. We have a great group of projects this year, many that deal with a theme I’m personally investigating — the use of new media to encourage interactions between strangers or express human intimacy. I will be showing some of my new Locations & Dislocation postcards from CONFLUX and Sao Paulo (pictures). There will be a gallery of work and a few short presentations. The projects are by grad students or alumni of MFA programs in NYC working in socially engaged new media, but the event is open to all and has drawn a fun and diverse group of people in the past.
Electronic Social Club: a network of NYC graduate students connected by the practice of creating social dialogue through projects in media, art and design.

Like a social club, [ ESC ] is formed around a common interest, activity or location. We bring together MFA students from across New York City to meet and showcase their graduate art work, and to form a common network around the theme of creating social dialogue through art and media.
Past participants include: ShiftSpace (shiftspace.org), the ICED Game: I Can End Deportation (icedgame.com), and projects from Hunter College, NYU ITP, Parsons MFADT, Pratt Institute, Brooklyn PIMA, and Polytechnic Institute of NYU.
