[Mar 16] TIP Master Class #7 with Creative Technologist Danielle McPhatter

Danielle McPhatter is a creative technologist that collaborates with artists, designers and musicians to help develop and realize their work. As emerging technology such as XR and GenAI continue to evolve at a rapid pace, it is critical that artists, who are often at the bleeding edge of society and technology, lead the way in thinking about how these technologies can serve as a tool to augment us, rather than replace us. Danielle helps artists in facilitating and curating an open space for play, curiosity and experimentation with technology, while also using it as an avenue to discuss social, political, environmental and ethical issues through art and experience.

DATES AND TIMES:  Saturday March 16, 2024 from 1 – 3 pm

LOCATION: online


Danielle McPhatter is a NYC-based creative technologist working at the intersection of emerging technology, art and humanity.
