NYU ITP: One of the most aesthetically intriguing pieces in this year’s ITP show was “In the Future, Gardens Will Grow on Motors,” an eerie landscape of black rocks and light bulbs filled with ferrofluid, a dark magnetic liquid. The system used solar power to charge batteries, which created electromagnetic pulses that made the ferrofluid take on different shapes.
NYU ITP: Becky Kazansky and Alexander Kozovski’s Re-cyclelight is powered by kinetic energy salvaged from braking the bike — perfect for alerting drivers that you are slowing down.
There were several wearable green designs at the show, but our favorite was Eight by Hana Marie Newman. This plastic dress serves as a personal air purification system complete with an oxygen tank.
