NEW INC, the first museum-led incubator, is a shared workspace and professional development program designed to support creative practitioners working in the areas of art, technology, and design. Conceived by the New Museum in 2013 and launched September 2014, the incubator is a not-for-profit platform that furthers the Museum’s ongoing commitment to new art and new ideas.
Bitonti's studio frequently pushes the boundaries of additive manufacturing—the industry term for 3D printing—by collaborating with other designers and technology leaders. Bitonti designed these rainbow-hued shoes, part his "Mollecule" Shoe Collection, with the help of Adobe (for the necessary software) and Stratasys (for the necessary 3D printing technology).
The Venue: Skylight Clarkson Sq. Located in West SoHo, Skylight Clarkson Sq is the crown jewel of raw venues in Manhattan. The sprawling, 60,000 sq ft ground level space is one of the city’s largest event floor plates. Skylight Clarkson Sq, which once served as the High Line’s most southern terminal, is a versatile white studio which producers are limited only by their imaginations.
