Announcement: SAS projects at design, other projects at Centennial on Wednesday


On Wednesday we'll be discussing our projects.

SAS teams will meet at the same design auditorium as before, where they will listen to designers present their ideas about the project, and will present their own ideas. 1-2 minutes per presentation. Afterward you'll mix and see if you can find a design team you'd like to work with. When you do, please email me and our TA lingnan at glingna@ncsu.edu. If you don't, we'll just assign you one! It's possible you'll meet somewhere beside the auditorium, will let you know if so.

Other project teams will make their first presentations in class here at Centennial Campus, where we'll give you some early feedback. These need not be polished presentations at all.

Come to the nexUX Meetup!

Pat Fitzgerald, Associate Professor, NC State Art & Design

Creating interactive experience with technology

Pat has been creating interactive technology experiences for years. Collaborating closely with Lee Cherry at the College of Design's Advanced Media Lab, he has created installations for the national yearly art exhibition at ACM SIGGRAPH, the NC Museum of Art, and Raleigh's Contemporary Art Museum — among many others. Pat is a nexUX leader, working deeply at the intersection of art, technology and emotion.

At this meetup, Pat will show us some of this prior work, and then engage us in a conversation about a new project he is engaged in called Recognition, a unique quiz game with a highly visual mechanic. We'll brainstorm about what makes interactive experiences like these compelling, and how we might apply those thoughts to Recognition.

As usual, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to discuss our own memorable interactive experiences, what gave them such impact, and how we might create such experiences in the future.

If you're coming, please RSVP with the button below. Also, please forward this email to whomever you think meet be interested. 


Patrick FitzGerald has a BA from Southern Methodist University and an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Prior to joining the faculty of the College of Design at NC State University, Professor Patrick FitzGerald served as an instructor, artist and manager at the Kodak Center for Creative Imaging in Camden, Maine.

His work has been exhibited across the United States and abroad. FitzGerald’s research and teaching span the full range of multimedia production, from digital video to interactive 3D animation. His creative interests involve new ways of combining art, design and interactive media.

Professor FitzGerald has received national and international awards for his digital illustrations. In 1999, he received a North Carolina Fellowship for the Visual Arts. Recent projects and installations include the 2010 opening of the new NCMA gala (with AML), 2009 Zoom Raleigh (with AML in downtown Raleigh ), 2007 The Consumer Culture Garden (with EAT at NCMA), and GoMAP2.0 (interactive prototype for PDA).
