Ben Kauffman, Former Media Lab Intern, Digital Media
Posted: Thursday, May 22, 2014
I began my internship in the Digital Media Department's Media Lab in the summer of 2013, after my first year as a master's candidate in the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. With a background in music and multimedia performance, my first year at ITP was frankly mind-blowing: I learned a whole host of new technologies that opened up entirely new ways of approaching narrative, visual imagery, and audience participation, and my work in the Media Lab was propelled by this new outlook.
The Digital Media Department leads the creation, production, presentation, and dissemination of multimedia content to support the viewing and understanding of the Met's collection and exhibitions, both within the galleries and online. This blog discusses a few of the activities of the department, and invites your questions and comments about the Museum's digital initiatives.
